REMINDERS - TIME FOR SUMMER CAMP - 2019

Imani House Kids!
Imani House Kids!

Dear Friends of Camp Imani House:

I hope this note reaches you in good health. I want to personally say thank you.  We could not have done our free after school programs and summer camp for over 19 years without you!  Your support has had immeasurable benefits for the children we serve, most of whom otherwise would not have the opportunity to go to camp or after-school. We hope that you will contribute to this important program, no matter how small.  It all counts.

Raising the Next Generation - Camp Imani is a free seven week full day program for 120 children that runs from July 1 to August 16 this year.  Our Camp exposes children to fun filled programming, including performance arts, sports, archery, leadership, and academic support.   

Many Parents and Children visit us long after the students move on to higher education. They credit Imani House with their success and thank us for caring for their children in a safe and supportive environment while they worked. Our former students, now young adults, and their parents often stop by to tell us that Imani House has played a major role in the positive direction the young people have taken with their lives.  

Providing Summer Camp is Important, especially during the summer months, when most  parents are working hard to provide for their families. Without opportunities to attend expensive summer camps, our  children may lack proper supervision, have little to do outside of watching TV or playing video games, and have insufficient engagement in activities to keep them stimulated and out of trouble.

An Exciting Summer Awaits 120 Chidlren at Camp Imani 2019.  We have begun planning a long list of exciting activities and trips. Applications are being accepted for the camp as we recruit the best staff, artistic consultants and volunteesrs for summer placement.  Trips and transportation have been arranged, along with an extensive list of programing sure to please the children.  Parents can rest assured that their child/ren are cared for and safe. 

Join us...Your Support is Critical.  PLEASE consider how important your support is for. All donations are appreciated and no donation is too small.  Your support is appreciated and will be acknowledged.

Sincerely,

Young Artists I

Liberian Family Health Care & Education Update

Hello:

Imani House, Inc. is writing to update you on our progress  since our last report and to thank you for all the support over the years towards our Liberian Family Health Care and Education initiaitves. 

Our health related programs cater mainly to Liberian women and infants, who are a highly underserved population. Affortable health care facilities are few and far between in Liberia and not accesible to many. Imani House, has aimed to bridge that gap since the early 90's and perserved through war, the Ebola outbreak, lack of support and resources and other struggles; but we have found ways to rise above it all providing these neccesary services with the same dedication we started out with no matter the difficulties.

Your past and forthcomming support is an important part of the reason we have perserved and we approciate YOU!

So far for 2019  we have served 1500  mothers and children in our Child and Maternal Healthcare facility and have provided them with immunizations,  prophalaxis measures, wound care and other fist aid, referals to larger/better equiped facilities for serious medical issues, pre & post natal care and more.

Our Women's Health Education Manual , which has been mentioned in the past is still being put to good use and for 2019 we have worked with 5 teen peer educators ( who we train) and 150 other students at two Monrovia highschools providing workshops on proper waste disposal and sanitation, infectious disease provention, reproductive health and other health related topics. The Health Manual project still continues to do out reach in communities as well, providing information to adults

Please continue working with us to provide these valuable services, or join us if you have not yet.

 

Sincerely

 

Bisi Ideraabdullah
