Subject: MORE GOOD NEWS FROM THE WEBMART CHARITABLE TRUST
Had a great email from Carol who runs one of the charities we support – Building a Future for Peruvian Children (some of you may remember Carol when she came to visit us last year).
We donated £7,500 to the charity last year which has enabled them to continue to support the 500 children we helped to get into school year before last and an ADDITIONAL 203 children last year. WHICH IS JUST BRILLIANT!!!
This picture is of the children from Marcopampa who had just been given their school rucksacks, dictionaries etc. This school is in a more remote, higher, northern part of the district where the charity operates and in an area where people tend to be even poorer on average than the children we have already helped.
Full report on the notice board in the postroom if you want to have a read.
Doesn’t it just give you a nice warm glow!!!
WELL DONE EVERYONE – WE REALLY ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE. DURING THE PAST YEAR WE HAVE HELPED/CONTINUED TO HELP …………
703 KIDS IN PERU ;
25 YOUNG ADULTS IN ETHIOPIA;
LOTS OF KIDS BEING RESCUED FROM THE STREETS IN KENYA, GIVEN SAFE ACCOMMODATION AND BEING TAUGHT SKILLS TO HELP THEM SURVIVE;
HAVE PROVIDED A COMPUTER SYSTEM TO GIVE SOMEONE ( AND EVENTUALLY OTHERS) BACK THEIR INDEPENDENCE THROUGH SPECIAL EFFECT’S FANTASTIC EYE TECHNOLOGY AND
SPONSORED STAFF AND FRIENDS OF WEBMART WHO WERE RUNNING/CLIMBING/etc TO RAISE MONEY FOR THEIR PREFERRED CHARITIES.
WHAT A TEAM!!!
