Hi Friends of Able Kids Rehab in Malawi, Africa:
As we approach the month of June it is also a reminder that we are halfway through 2016; the days they are flying by.
As in the past CCCF has provided 50% of the yearly food budget, our job is to match that amount. With 89 children enrolled Monday through Friday and sometimes over 100 on the weekends, the food supplies are dwindling. We are hoping that between now and the end of June to collect $6500 to provide the children at the clinic with continued nutritious meals.
Last year, food was scarce in Malawi due to approximately 8,000 southern Malawi farms being washed away in never seen before flooding. This year the flooding hit the north of Malawi, while leaving the south in a drought as corn planting time approached. Many farmers planted their corn crops twice, and have had the corn seeds blow away in the wind and now have no money left to plant a third time. This will affect the children.
Between the lack of food availability, food prices climbing, and Malawi’s currency being almost worthless, the kids and Victor need our help more than ever.
Please consider supporting this wonderful cause.
I realize that not everyone is able to contribute each year, and I know for a lot of us we are currently concerned about our fellow Canadians in Fort McMurray. Just know that any amount you can send would be so much appreciated.
The second reason I am sending this email is because I would also like to announce that yesterday morning at 10:30 a.m. the clinic website went live. Please, please stop by and check it out at www.ablekidsrehab.org. The website has been a labour of love created by the talented and meticulous Brian Alger. Brian has graciously volunteered his keen talents to make this website happen, we think it is fantastic. While it will be a work in progress you will certainly get a feel for the wee miracle happening in the little clinic in Blantyre, Malawi.
