Ladies and Gentlemen, you have been truly awesome. Last year, I had a wish on my birthday. It was that you all give me old clothes, shoes and toys in that were in good condition so that through a company owned by Hubby and I, we’ll them to donate to IDP camps in Adanmawa. The response was overwhelming, you sent clothes, people sent toys, some people donated their time to help sort the clothes into categories (see post here) and now with the help of the Red Cross the items have been distributed at an IDP camp in Adanmawa. I just wanted to say thank you again and share a few pictures and a video (hope that works), of the donated items and the beautiful children they went to.

Our Super Hero… And the real heroes of this story, the great people of the Red Cross who risk their lives to ensure that help gets where it should go. I am in awe of what you guys do.

Just to say thank you. I am honoured, that I asked and you answered. Hubby and I feel thankful. And Amir is really thankful as well, he recorded a short video to say thank you, watch it here, https://vimeo.com/120357407.

I pray that God heals our land, that these children can go home and grow well and live in joy like all children should. In the interim, however, with your help, we will be a force for good, we will try to bring a smile to their faces in the ways that we can. We have received a few more cases of clothes and shoes, and plan to send those to the Red Cross for distribution by the end of February, if you would like to contribute used clothes and toys that are clean and in good condition, please email me at hajelsblogs@gmail.com, so we can arrange pick up.

Thank you so much.

Hajel
