Lets Join hands to save lives....
Hello ETReaders, Been a while...how una dey? I got a mail from someone like 2days ago but due to some challenges wasn't able to post. below is the mail.
I got your contact form your friend Chris Okafor (who blogs at publicwellness.blogspot.com)
There are some group of persons living in a thick forest in Patani, Delta State, who really need help. These people are living in the worst environmental conditions on earth. There are no sources of potable water, no good houses and no educational facilities. I went to this place and broke down in tears when I saw pregnant women sleeping on the bare floor because there were no beds/mattresses, hungry-looking children loitering in tattered clothes because their parents could not afford to buy them good ones.
THE STORYDear Temmy, the poverty in this environment is way too much. I want to help them but there's little I can do for them as an individual and as a woman so I want to plead with you to publish the story on your blog and hopefully other people can join forces with me to help them. What they basically need are mattresses, Clothes, Food items, Detergents, Toiletries, and other useful items. We would also be organizing free malaria check up and treatment especially for the pregnant women.Patani Forest is located just between Bayelsa state and Warri (Delta State) and the population so far in this place is about 450, including children. Thank you my dear Temmy for your time and I look forward to your favorable reply. Find attached the story and the accompanying pictures. Best Regards, Phina Akhimien (Mrs.)
The pictures below tell the sad story of some group of people living in Patani Forest. Among the people living in this forest are the elderly, pregnant women, nursing mothers, teenagers and children. These people struggle everyday to survive as they barely eat.
The children and pregnant women in this forest go to bed at night hungry, sleep on the bare floor (because they cannot afford the luxury of bed), drink contaminated water and are under the constant attacks of mosquitoes and wild animals, including snakes.
We are using this medium to call on good spirited individuals to come to the help of our brothers and sisters who are suffering in this forest. You can help with the following items: clothes, food items, disinfectants, detergents, noodles, soaps and especially Mattresses (foams). Patani forest is located right here in Nigeria- between Bayelsa and Warri, Delta State.
