Om projektet

Dear beloved human being.

I've decided to skip my holiday and stay in Gingee with the local NGO, CECOWOR. There have been heavy rain which created massive floods all over Tamil Nadu and Chennai was hit hard for the past week. Since all the news are focused on Chennai, being the bigger city, I'm now reaching out to all of you to help the rural districts.
For the past week I've visited villages, who normally struggle to make a living - now with the flood, they are struggling to just make it through the day. I've seen their houses and I saw their pain.
I've dedicated this week to help the people the best that I can, but I need your help. For the next couple of days I ask you to give a donation and please share with friends and family. Together we can help a lot of families. CECOWOR is a small NGO with a strong connection to the villages and community. The staff here doesn't have much themselves, but every day they are fighting for the rights of these villages. Most of the villages are Tribal or Gypsie villages and they are only entitled to small government help, but rarely they see this help implemented. With your help I will do my best for these families to make it through the day, one day at a time. So this is an urgent emergency charity event, so you also can trust that your money goes straight to the families in need.
I will post stories and pictures on the facebook event, so please follow the link for updates. It's hard to hold the hands of these families and walk away from it all to go to a dry house and a warm meal. I'm in the middle of a crisis and I have a responsibility to tell about the situation and hopefully you will help me, help them.
Any donation is a mayor help - with little money you can help a lot in this context.

Thank you for your time and for being a beautiful human being.
