Greetings to you our dear donors, friends and well-wishers. We are always happy to report back to you in appreciation for the support you have always rendered to the organization.

The organization is currently going through tough times with our fundraising is at its lowest. There seems to be a ray of hope though but this project is still facing challenges of funding. It is sad to note that we have not had any activity on this project simply because we did not have the funds to push us forward. We are however working out ways of overcoming this challenge and we need every support there is. We ask for your continued support.

The community still needs our help and support because of the circumstances and dilemma the devastating floods ravaged the area. We however cannot do much because of the lack of funds we find ourselves in. We at the Foundation are hopeful and will continue to fight on so that we can achieve our objectives. We just do not know how long this will take but yes we still want to do something for this project. We can still achieve our objective with your support. We are grateful always for the support and do hope that you will continue supporting the project. Thank you always

A year after the devastating floods that left Kilembe valley in terrible shape, the floods were at it again and caused more destruction. There was no consideration that people were still nursing wounds and losses from the previous destruction. We are dealing with nature here and there are things we do not have control over, though man is also known to cause and accelerate certain disasters. The valley is in a much bigger mess than one would imagine. We have no idea when the next floods will hit again (thank God it is a dry season now), and seems like everyone is supposed to leave the valley and make way for redevelopment by the Chinese company that recently entered an agreement with government to mine and process copper in the valley. Eviction notices have been sent out to almost everyone in the valley save for those who have been lucky to get jobs from the new Chinese Company and the indigineous people in the surrounding hills. 

While all this is happening, there is no doubt that some people need help and support because life has never been the same since the floods. What is more disturbing is that the organisation is currently going through tough times with our fundraising at its lowest. It is sad to note that we have not had any activity on this project simply becuase we did not have the funds to push us forward. We are however working out ways of overcoming this challenge and we need every support there is. We ask for your continued support.

The community still needs our help and support because of the circumstances and dilema we find ourselves in. We at the Foundation are hopeful and will continue to fight on so that we can achieve our obejectives. We however, will achieve our objective with your support. We are grateful always for the support and do hope that you will continue supporting the project. Thank you always

Close to a year ago, Kilembe mines area was hit by devastating floods that wahsed away homes, took dear lives, destroyed property, seperated families and generally affected peoples lives forever. Like i have said before, it is amazing how time flies and one thing i have noticed is that human nature moves on even after the worst of disasters although it is hard to forget. 

As i type, Kilembe mines is preparing for a Chinese company take over and there is some renewed hope that life might come back to normal in this part of the country. The roads and some of the broken bridges have been repaired by the Government although some houses will never stand again.

The hospital is operational although the staff were recently on strike because they had not been paid in months and yet the hospital quarters were the most affected areas. Part of your donations were meant to aid the hospital and am sure any contribution can still make a difference. Much as it is true that the infrastructure is being replaced, the common man and woman, particularly the elderly, women, PWDs, vulnerable and disadvantaged children still need our help. Some need to revive their $50 businesses like selling vegetables, students need scholarstic materials etc

I am very positive we can make a difference with your support. I request that you continue to help us make that difference. We appreciate your support always.

Happy New Year to all of you our donors, friends and well wishers. Thank you for making 2013 possible and we look forward to your continued support.

About 8 months ago, Kilembe Community came to a standstill because of the floods that devastated the area. It is good that the violent floods that devasted the are took place in the early hours of the morning. Had it not been like that, Kilembe Community would have lsot many lives in just a single sweeping. 

The floods were terrible, the pictures say it all. Some three people lost their lives and houses were swept away. All these negative consequences had a bearing on people's lives and day today activities. What is most unfortunate is that, it is the less fortunate who were grosssly affected. Like they say, time is the best healer. The survivors have since moved on and with help from different corners of the country, the community is coping again. The hospital is operational but would still do with some help, the schools are open again and the infrastructure like roads, running water and electricity have since been worked on by the government. The challenge however remains, there are people who lost everything and can still benefit from your support. The best example of these are the old women who sell food stuff in the local market and support their families. They need some business capital to get themon their feet again. Kindly help us achieve this objective with your support. 

On a brighter note, i have attached two picrures, both showing the same area, one taken immediately after thefloods and the other showing the same area during the road works. There is definitely a ray of hope. It is our sincere hope that you continue to support this project so that we can empower those that were affectd by the deadly floods.

Best Wishes of the New Year once again.
