I would like to seize the opportunity to congratulate us on launching this outstanding fundraising campaign online. For us to succeed, we call upon you to join us. Donate your time, your resource as well as share this with friends out there. Our donations in for this project so far have amounted to Euro 175 - the sum that will be transferred to Alekii School western of Rusinga Island, western Kenya-Africa. On our online photo gallery (www.alekii.webs.com) you can see the faces of young children in Kenya who need our help. The money will be donated for finishing the classrooms, paying of teachers, supporting them to have basic needs as well as buying books. Our goal is to decrease the number of children who doesn’t have s proper education due to lack of funds in Rusinga Island under our sponsorship. To achieve this noble goal, we have organized a charity online campaign. I am honored to thank you in advance, organizations and private persons, who care for people in need in the heart of the African continent.
We all know that Kenya is in a desperate economic condition, many of its natural resources exhausted and different political groups still tearing the country into separate parts due to their endless conflicts. But common people, victimized by the regime, have a right to live, to give birth to babies, and to enjoy families with many kids. The children of Kenya, who suffer from malnutrition and hard conditions of life, are brave to have access to education, shelter, and food. We are proud of their bravery and their will to experience all pleasures of childhood. Majority are orphans who have lost their parents due to HIV/Aids.
However, the conditions are grave. Poor medical care, if any, a high rate of infant deaths - one can hardly imagine that all this may be possible in the first decade of the 21st century. We are living in the world that needs great changes. But, as once President Obama said, we are responsible for the future of the world as well. Our charity organization has been constantly working on fundraising, much of which is transferred as humanitarian aid. Few months ago, through good collaboration and partnership with friends, we managed to fundraise and built them semi-permanent classrooms.
Today, we are often constrained to our own domestic affairs. We think of our own future, with hopes at the time of recession. But when we are in trouble, citizens of a prosperous country people in developing countries suffer from the crisis much, much more. They have to fight for their everyday needs. But they have few resources to struggle against their extreme poverty.
The most unprotected circles of African society are kids. If it happened that you can come and visit any African home, you’ll be shocked. It frightened us to see how mother and kids suffer. In that hot climate it is very important to fight against infectious diseases e.g Malaria. Water supplies are limited, and drinking water is of notorious low quality. We have developed a program "Mom and kid" that will gradually change the situation at least one maternity house for the better. You will be informed on this program on our website soon.
Life is so beautiful. God presents us with this gift of life not to suffer from what we can have as our right. Health care protection is a hot issue in developing countries. On paper, kids are protected and have primary care. In reality, the situation is quite, quite different.
Our mutual efforts, our support - all this African and children need most of all. Together, we will fulfill our duty of cherishing every human life.
I wish to thank you, our sponsors and donors, for your donations.
Let's go on building the bonds of friendship and goodness through cooperation and mutual respect. Thank you all for being with us, joining us, and supporting our beginnings. Thank you!
