Help for Basma!

We have fresh news for you: Miriam and Laura, our Country managers, have just come back from their monitoring trip to Damour! They can’t wait to tell the story of one refugee child….

“When the war started, Abdo had one goal in mind, save his family from what they feared most. He just didn’t know that things will go that fast. He left his wife with four children, the eldest 7 years old, and came to Lebanon to try to find a place to stay and a job. Short after that, the war had reached Aleppo, and Ghazale had to flee with her four children to Afrin. Two months later, Ghazale was able to flee with her daughters to Lebanon. The family lived for four years in Ouzai, one of the poorest banlieues of Beirut. They moved after that to Damour, where the family had two other children, the youngest of which, Basma, is now 9 months old.

Basma suffers from birth from health problems and malnutrition. Since birth her intestines are not functioning properly. Because of that her body is unable to get rid of toxins. At 6 months she did tests that showed high levels of inflammation, malnutrition and severe anemia. The family was getting the needed medicine but was unable to purchase the prescribed milk. The doctor declared that breastfeeding was not giving her any nutrients, but the family could not afford baby’s milk. Because priority was given to medicine, the mother was diluting yogurt in water with the hope that this will help her daughter. Milk is provided to Basma when donated, as was the case of the milk provided by Aleimar”.

As you may already know, the 20th of June is the World Refugee Day, a very important opportunity for you to support Meals for All. From 00.00 ET on Thursday 20th of June to 23.59 ET on Friday 21st of June, GlobalGiving will double your donation!

Only a donation per person is possible, so it would be great if you could engage your friends, relatives and colleagues. Please tell them who we are, what we do and help us spread this call. You’ll make the difference in these families’ lives!

Thank you from the bottom of our heart!

New updates!

We have fresh news for you from our project! Angela, our project leader in Namwera came back to Milan and we recently met her. She told us that in Mangochi there is still a need for new pedal pumps, to allow every family the access to water. Father Kimu said that the harvest doubles or even triple using the pedal pumps. It is easy to understand how these pedal pumps really improve the lives of these families. In Namwera, instead, which is a hilly area, it is difficult to find water at a superficial level, reachable by a pedal pump. For this reason, the project will focus in the future on the Mangochi area, where this system is more effective.

Moreover, the 21st of May, presidential election were held in Malawi. The former President Mutharika should be confirmed, but scrutiny is still being carried out.

We want thank you for you support, also on behalf of all the families you are helping!

Spring has finally come

Thanks from the Creche’s children!

The Creche Centre in Bethlehem needs our help to assist lots of children who have no choice but live in an unfriendly and hostile environment. Let’s put our efforts together and give them a brighter opportunity of growth!

Last days were very intense because of many new children arriving at Creche. It’s more than a challenge looking after newborns completely dependent on others, but its caring staff is getting much back from their work day-by-day: just a smile is worth all this work!

Now that spring is coming by, Creche little guests can’t wait to have fun in the garden, running, jumping and making new experiences playing in nature! The birds’ chirping and the flowers’ colors and perfumes enchant them and inspire their drawing back home… fantasy is their characteristic, they paint reality in their own special way! Anyone can look at their work and feel amazed!

We hugely thank you for your important contribution because it is really indispensable to allow these babies to have the life that any child of their age deserves!
