Report 2

Ebola orphans - VOA#1 community
Ebola orphans - VOA#1 community

Thank you so much for your gifts. This is our second report:

The shipment of 50,000 packets of seeds made possible by your support left East Rochester, New York to hopefully be picked up and moving from JFK today. 

The seed selection includes cabbage, collard, cucumber, eggplant, okra, hot pepper and bell pepper. This represents a variety of foods that can be readily grown by households and fit well into the local diet, and are sellable at market to bring needed extra income. Our partners in Liberia have strong agricultural training and will select and distribute seeds accordingly.

Our partner, Church Aide Liberia; Directed by Rev. Kortu Brown relies on our partnership and works closely with others service providers to reach Liberians in need.

Rev. Brown reports “The field search of our psychosocial team in the VOA#1 community, about 5 minutes drive away from our church reported about 101 Ebola orphans are struggling in that community. Church Aid team of 10 trauma counselors have been going in there two weeks now to ascertain whether these children, ranging from 1 1/2 to 18 years old were really orphaned by Ebola including 71 reported survivors in this same area. Banjor community findings are awaited. We are also exploring a possible 4-fold program for such kids: [1] Place with foster parents/guardians where required and provide for basic needs i.e food, clothes, etc, [2] Support a center where they can benefit from trauma counseling and recreation, [3] Provide periodic medical care, and [4] Education sponsorship in any school of their choosing in the country, etc. "

With your help, we've reached $772.00, this achievement will surely support our work to fight hunger among thousands of seed recipients. We are within in reach of our goal of $2000.00. With monies raised we are able to go forward in getting more seeds to Liberia. So, if there is anybody among your friends, colleagues, or family who intended to give and may have forgotten, or who you think might gain satisfaction from supporting this project, let them know today! Global Giving also offers very nice e-cards, printable paper cards, and mailed cards for giving in honor of a birthday or any other occasion.

Have a great 2015. You'll likely hear another update in about a month. Until then, we can't thank you enough for your support.
