Yesterday i posted a blog about one of “our” orphanages in Sierra Leone, where there has been an outbreak of Cholera. We had a lot of people donate, our goal is 12 000 NOK ( 2160 USD), and we’ve already managed to get in 6 000 NOK ( 1080 USD), thanks to all the goodhearted people out there! We love you!
There is 47 children in need of urgent medical attention, as we speak. Medicine and gear is very expensive, worldwide; especially in countries where the health care system is nonexisting.
Per date in Sierra Leone, medicines cost’s about 265 NOK ( 47 USD) for one child; that means everything included, and when the child recovers, they will be vaccinated.
So, for 265 NOK you can save a life. A vaccine against Cholera lasts for 2 years.
100 % of the money VSH get in, goes straight to the children, we take nothing in administration, so every penny you donate; goes to the children.
We will keep everyone updated, how the situation is and what has to be done next.
I thought i’d tell you a little more about our organization.
We constantly get new contacts in new countries, and with the help of our coresponders ,we try to maintain the relationships we have with several countries, orphanages etc. It’s hard work trying to find contacts in new countries, mainly because ” Varme små hjerter” priorities helping charity hospital, orphanages and friendly souls.
Our concept is helping those who are not seen or heard, this is time consuming. We meet a lot of challenges, and we often get problems that leads us to not be able to help those who need it the most. But thankfully these problems are on their way, and we are able to help a lot of children.
We have to think about a lot of things, before we send our packages with clothes and gear. First off, we need to be a 100 % sure that what we send can actually benefit the children. We hear a lot of heart breaking stories, and every day we learn something new about corruption, rules , and the difficulties the children meet, every day.
Thi is some of the countries we help:
South and middle America
Right now, one of our orphanages in Sierra Leone is up agains Cholera, and we are desperatly trying to help them!
