Follow-up of the project 2012

Visit of the project 15.01.2012

Sunday 15. 01.2012. We are guests at ‘ mother of the poor ’ in Kitabi.
It is a newly launched project and we are surprised, once again, by the enthusiasm and the many that can be done with limited resources. At noon we eat with the sisters who are trying to do the maximum … they sing and dance with us … Anne also plays for them … together, we are strong!!
Singing children, a sewing workshop , a vegetable garden, a few cows, …. but in the same time many questions for further aid: this is an extremely poor region ….

We meet a large number of disabled people for which there are no facilities. They have come to meet us in the hope that we can do something for them.
There is a monthly doctor, a day in the ' centre de santé ' …
Help is needed ... And again a lot!!
We are powerless ...
But, here too, we seek means to do something!!!

It may not be that in 2012 people have to live this way!!
