Being saleed to support our URGENT refugee aid project in the Moyen Cavally region.
We have supported several villages in Cote D'Ivoire and Liberia for several years.
Due to conflicts in Cote D'Ivoire and severe drought conditions many thousands of
displaced villagers have become refugees in camps across the border or are piling into
already crowded villages which do not have the infrastructure to support them.
Several aid agencies have pulled out of the region.
We are doing what we can to support them
with food provisions and medicines for Malaria and Dysentery
which has become a big problem.
On behalf of all those who will be helped by the medicines and aid from the offerding on this piece - Thankyou.
If anyone has further question, please feel free to ask...
