By funding the service, we join them hand in hand in growing the nutrient and provide the needed soil. ”

2017 The Way Forward
“In our ten years of existence we have learnt that the most effective way to grant relief is to deliver aid directly to the sufferers. To accomplish this we must first seek out the intermediaries (NGOs) who have expertise in their respective fields and help them make the deliveries. Funding is not the only resource we can provide, NGOs need premises to operate and administrative competence to service those in need. Our objective is to offer both.”
