News from the campign

The campaign to found the kindergarden "La Casa del Bambino Gesù" in Erbil will continue until 
approximately the end of July 2016, although the accompaniment in the field will be maintained by
our partners of AVSI Foundation, who will stay in Erbil and follow the proyect and the evolution of
this terrible war and humanitarian tragedy. In recent months, from the Asociacion Cultural para el Desarrollo Integral , we continue the
campaign by promoting awareness and promoting informal actions to spread the initiative. A few days ago we received a donation from a joung couple, Matias and Ana, who decided to
donate $ 100 to ensure educational support to a child refugee in Iraq. In Argentina, a country
where inflation is growing rapidly and is difficult to make some earning at the end of the month,
it's not so common that a famly with 3 children supporte a couse overseas. For us, they are, like
others donors, an important example of solidarity and humanity. We hope to continue receive the support of such special people, as well as contributing to the
process of sensitization and awareness of people who live far away from this war. We thanks eache donor and share a video of gratitude that we received from the cooperant of
AVSI in Iraq, who told us that the 68% of the funds needed for the execution of the whole project
has already been rised.

Getting closed to our objective

One month before the end of our campaign, we are happy to tell our readers that ACDI will found 15 children's kindergarten fee. Even if our capaign took different ways instead of crowdfounding, it got a good result by raising more than 1600 dollars in argentinean pesos.

For argentinean people it's a great effort!

Different people decided to join ACDI's iniciative and organized lots of activities to benefit this cheeldren:

Natalia from Rafaela (Argentina) sold pastry and cakes to her friends and clientes. She is a professor of yoga and she opened her studio to a charity fair where she invited her friends to sell CD, DVD and clothes togather with some regional products.

A group of native woman of the north of Argentina gave an admirable example of charity by givind some of their handicraft to Natalia's studio, togather with a grup of shepherd woman, who donate their goat cheese to help the refugee.

Both grups of woman are beneficiaries of ACDI's projects and they show clearly how charity its often imparted by peoble who got through poverty them selves.

In Buenos Aires, Laura organized a concert in a church with her chorus, raising more than 800 dollars in one night. The place was crowdy and the event was so successful that it was mentioned in a local newspaper.

Ther were other small initiatives that helped ACDI in getting private donations and sensibilized people in its cause.

Even if our objective hasn't been reached yet, we have still one month to acheive it and we have a high hope to acheive it: donate an year of kindergarten to 15 children more!
