It is amazing how time flies. It is hard to believe that three months have gone by since the disaster hit Kilembe mines community. We are only grateful to God for the fact that the destruction happened during broad day light and if it had happened in the night, Many people would have lost lives under the shadow of darkness. Many people lost property and begin to move on from some point.
We were atcively engaged with the community in trying to help those affected by the floods together with other organisations that came out to help. We are now determined to help individual victims/families recover from the shock of the daster and be able to move on. Businesses were wiped out, houses arased down and lives lost. It is in our need that with your assistance, we are able to help some of the victims on how to start or continue with their lives after the disaster. We can do this by giving small start up loans especially to women, organising therapy sessions for those affected and generally helping resettle the flood victims.
We mananged to collect and dtricbute clothes and some food to those who urgently needed them but could not do much given our own limitations. 100 families or more still need help to recover from the disaster. We are counting on your help so that we can make a difference in these affected people's lives.
We certainly are very grateful for your support so far.
