Help me, Help them.



Dear readers from near and far,

Salam and good morning!

If you could spare some little time reading about my 2 year old "son" and lending some support in any way you can. 

2 years old Charbel has lost his father and is now living with his mother together with 2 other siblings in Bent Jbeil, Lebanon. 

Bent Jbeil, a town where Charbel and his family live is located approximately 122km from Beirut, Lebanon. It is in the front-lines of many Lebanese-Israeli conflicts, resulting in damaged homes & economies, massive displacements, psychosocial trauma and a high death toll. Hence, the town still undergoes a struggling economy with a high poverty rate of 70%.

As the public health care centres there lack medical equipment and specialized doctors, Charbel and his other friends have no access to basic health care services. Not only so, the violence against children increased after the 2006 war due to the tension and depression faced by parents. 

Together with World Vision Malaysia, I am raising fund to sponsor Charbel and other children living in her community for 5 years. I hope you will lend your support and together we can Hands Up for Children to ensure they are healthy and educated, able to establish wholesome relationships and are participative, and most importantly, are cared for and protected.

Your contribution will help Charbel and other children living in Bent Jbeil receive better healthcare protection. Children and the families will also be educated on topics that raise their awareness on health issues. Whereas child protection initiatives will be implemented to make sure the children are protected from physical violence as well as verbal and emotional abuse. 

For enquiries, please visit World Vision Malaysia’s website www.worldvision.com.my, call the hotline 03-7880 6414 or email us at admin@worldvision.com.my or visit http://www.simplygiving.com/fundraising/viewfund.aspx?f=daphneiking to find out more about how you can contribute a ringgit or more towards this online fundraising charity that I'm  supporting. Even if you are unable to support Charbel/World Vision monetarily -- I would be most grateful if you could spread the word on my fundraising. To date, we have raised RM4060 so far, which is 7% of the target we aim to raise in another 2 weeks. =( 

Thank you for reading and helping in any way you can. 

Love, hugs and prayers,

Daphne Iking-Azmi
