In November, we were blessed with the visit to Bamako of a team of volunteer doctors from the Utah Valley Eye Center who provided free eye care services to those in need. Fatoumata was examined by 3 doctors: Dr. Matthew Parsons, Dr. Frank Edmunds and Dr. Paul Olson. All three have concluded that at her age, and with her current vision of 20/400 with the myopic correction, Fatoumata will need a cataract surgery in the future. The doctors have promised to provide annual consultations to Fatoumata during their visit in Bamako before she is ready for the operations. The year was ended with a visit to Bamako by one of our board of directors, Alpha, who spent Christmas and New Year with the children in Bamako. Please donate today. We have raised 58% of the funds needed to fully fund Fatoumata’s operations costs. Our work is only possible because of your generosity. Fatoumata is in danger of losing her sight. Thank you for supporting our efforts towards achieving our mission of helping her keep her eye sight.

While we are waiting for the visa to go to France, Fatoumata project had 2 more prospectives developed in the past couple of months: (1) possible trip to India to be operated on by an organization that provides free operations services and we will have to provide her and her chaperon's travel, room and board for the 3 weeks duration of the visit to India, and (2) a team of doctors visiting Bamako will be able to consult Fatoumata and assess her situation and maybe operate on her.  In the meantime, Fatoumata is being cared for with your support funds and we will keep you informed of the evolution of the project as we move forward.

Corn harvesting
Corn harvesting

 

Our farming and Zorokoro Children Complex projects are well progressing.   We are currently harvesting the corn, which is our biggest harvest as it supports the children throughout the entire year providing for their morning and evening meals.  Additionally, constructions continue in Zorokoro where the first dorm is almost complete and the construction of the fence has commenced.  Due to funding shortage we incurred a short break of 2 weeks, but we resumed the construction this week.  We are proud to announce that our children continue to strive thanks to your continued support.  Thank you very much, and please do not hesitate to contact our CEO if you have any questions.
