Project of the Month Update: February 2012

Help These Children Avoid Further Suffering
Help These Children Avoid Further Suffering

Dear Project of the Month Club,

We’re pleased to share with you that last month, you and the 133 other Project of the Month Club members raised $3,794 for  “Help These Children Avoid Further Suffering," a project by Retrak that meets the needs of children who have fled the famine-stricken areas in the Horn of Africa and are now living on the street in urban slums.

Anna, Retrak's project leader, had this to say when she found out about your donations: “Thanks to your generosity, fifteen children will be able to gain the care and protection of a family this month, and 67 children will be treated for conditions like colds, worms, infected wounds, dog bites, malaria and tuberculosis reflecting the harsh nature of life on the streets. Furthermore, 38 children will receive education and catch-up lessons allowing them to join schools again. Thank you for believing that every child is a unique and valuable gift to be loved and cared for as an individual; your donations make this happen.”

This month, your donations will go to support a project called Snehalaya, Meaning The Home With Love, in Hindi,” a care home in India where disabled children, homeless women and the elderly all work and live together as a family. This is a project of Gwailor Childrens Hospital Charity.

We are excited to share with you the great news that, according to Dr. Sharma, your donations this month will be used “to pay the salaries of Snehalaya’s special need teachers for an entire year; helping them educate and vocationally train people in the home, helping to rehabilitate them and make them independent.” What an incredible impact you’ll have for this unique community.

Thank you again, and we look forward to updating you on the high-impact project that you will support next month!

Warm regards,

Mari and the GlobalGiving Team
