Destination Lodwar – Relief project for the starving people in North Kenya
HelpAlliance supports relief project of Mekaela Academies
The employees of Mekaela Academies, a supported project of HelpAlliance, did not want to sit back and watch the famine among their fellow countrymen and started a help project of their own. Teachers and parents raised money to cover the costs for transportation. In addition, the Lufthansa employee, who had founded the Mekaela Academies together with her husband, has also collected money in Germany. The first convoy of trucks, accompanied by teachers of the Academy, already delivered urgently needed food to be distributed among the starving population. Many of the teachers and parents originate from the North of Kenya, but are now working and living in the South, where also the schools are. They know the situation in the North very well and know where and what is urgently needed.
HelpAlliance provides 10.000 Euros for further convoys to the North. With this money 15 tons of food can be purchased and distributed. This direct unbureaucratic help is very important to everybody involved.
Another project to help East Africa has already been identified in Ethiopia. We hope that there will be many donations to help fighting hunger in both regions.
The people of East Africa need help – you can help us help them!
