Dearest Loyal Blog Reader, no matter where on this very small planet,
I visited the Baharka IDP camp yesterday for a possible future project and also to see the needs of the people. The situation was heart breaking, there were so many pregnant women, orphans, widowed young girls (one was 15 – keep an eye out for her story on Niqash this week).
|The rain’s affect on families living under tents – Kawrgosk Refugee Camp
Camp life is harsh when it’s summer, but even harsher in winter months. While many of us saw the early rain as a blessing, it was a curse for the families under these tents. Many woke up in the middle of the night flooded, children don’t have boots or sox, mothers don’t have the right winter clothing. Parents are selling their blankets to spend the money on other necessities.

Hence, I am asking for your help. The following items will be a miracle for some of these families:
Milk and diapers for babies
warm clothes – jackets and sweaters
boots for children in particular
food items like flour, oil, sugar. Tomorrow’s blog post will explain to you why.
Or donate money and we will purchase these needs
