Dear Friends and Donors who help us.
It has been a long time since my last letter.
Madagascar, like the rest of the world, is suffering from a pandemic. It was already quite well, but now new cases of the disease are appearing again, which often end tragically, people die. In the country, masks, hand disinfection and keeping distance are mandatory. You have to keep one meter distance, but it’s worse because people don’t pay attention to it. When I go shopping at the market, I have to squeeze as through the corridors of trains as in the past in Poland.
As soon as the first cases of the disease appeared, two tourist towns were closed: Anosibe and Mahajanga. Later, more and more patients were in the capital of Antananarivo, there is no contact, no one can enter or leave. Only food trucks are allowed to enter and exit.
Now a few words about us and our facility. Last time I mentioned that we have a site to build a house and buildings in which we want to create classrooms and rooms for charity work. This area we have requires a lot of work. It has to be leveled and secured so that the earth does not slide down, walls are needed to support the earth. These works are very costly, but thanks to the help of an NGO, we started to clean up the area.
At the beginning, we want to prepare sports fields where we will organize time for children and teenagers. We will also build two classes, in one we will conduct computer science classes, and the other will be used according to current needs. In addition to classrooms, we need equipment: wardrobes, tables, desks, computers, instruments, toys, sound system, materials for manual work, etc.
Beloved, I know that you also have great difficulties related to the pandemic, but I am asking for help as much as you can, so that we can start acting and helping poor children and young people.
Thank you very much and best regards,
