Since there are a lot of people who want to stand our cause, ACDI decided to keep opened its campaign to bridge humanitarian help to the children of the Kindergarten "La casa del bambino Gesu" in Erbil. All found received, will be transferred to AVSI Foundation in Iraq, in order to stand its actions in this institution.

In the last months, ever since the Jubilee of Mercy has finished, our local initiatives have decreased, because they were better supported by the members of the Movement of Communion and Liberation. Anyway, our compromise to the cause is still tight and ACDI will keep canalizing founds to Erbil.

The humanitarian crisis in Middle East is an important human challenge to all of us. In Argentina, for example, were our Association mostly operates, it’s very difficult to sensitize people around a crisis that is happening so far away. Argentina is not directly touched by the events, either by migrants, but there are a lot of beautiful histories of people that showed us the power of solidarity by reaching $ 6.000, a big amount for the current value of the country.

So, if you want to be a part of this initiate and help with us these children, please collaborate and share this opportunity to stand this project.

The campaign to raise funds for "A kindergarten for 130 refugee children in Erbil" is getting more and more supporters around Argentina. A lot of people from different communities and villages decided to organize an event to raise money and collaborate with our cause. We want to share with you some of this experiences.

In Esperanza, a small village closed to Santa Fe City, in the Region of Santa Fe, a group teenagers decide to organize several meetings in order to sell cakes, popcorns and other meals made by themselves to raise money. The result was amazing since they met the support and collaboration of all the community. ACDI shares with you 2 pictures it received from the students, one of all of them selling popcorns after school, and the other is a screenshot of the Facebook Page they made up to spread the initiative.

Another important event that was recently realized in order to promote ACDI's campaign was set up buy a grup of friends in Venado Tuerto, another small village of the Region of Santa Fe. In this field, Stella Martha lidered the initiative by inviting her friends and family to support the Kindergarten. A lot of people decided to bear her, moved by the intention to help in a concrete way iraqui children. The community organized a "Locro Solidario", a big event where everybody could collaborate economically by sharing a lunch with tipical meal, the so called "Locro". We also share some pictures of this event.  

Last but not list, ACDI wants to thanks it's Unknow Special Donor who donate 1.000 dollars by GlobalGiving. Tanks to give such an important impulse to our campaign.

Until now, ACDI reached approximately 75.000 pesos, that means, in terms of children, the availability to support 50 of them during one year!!

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.

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!
