I have to be careful, unfortunately, how I word this, because of so many spammy messages with a very similar subject. I want to let you know that I personally know Jeff Power and he and the organization he works with, Global Hope Network
, are top notch.
Here is the email he sent this morning:
Urgent: Gambella ransacked
Hello everyone, I’m writing from Ethiopia at our African staff conference.
I’m asking for urgent help because I’m very sad to report that our dear village of Gambella, Kenya was just attacked by a band of theives. The theives came in the light of day, shot and killed 6 Gambellans to send the village fleeing, then stole animals, money and household items from almost 200 families.
Our heartbroken GHNI staff, Wubshet & Habiba, just came from helping Gambella in its immediate recovery. Our development work there is still completely intact, for which the villagers are highly relieved. But they need some immediate assistance to get back on their feet.
I’m asking for help so Wubshet & Habiba can help them.
We want to help their immediate needs for food and medical attention (many caught flu and pneumonia out in the rain for three days). We also want to help with a small animal loan program to help them restart their small herds.
$50 will give food and medical attention to a family for a month. $100 will cover both their immediate needs and their animal loan.
If you can help, please click on the link below.
And please keep Gambella in your thoughts and prayers. We’ll keep you updated.
Thank you for your care.
