Dear Friends and supporters of New World International
We need your help and we need it now. As you know we have been working with great success in rural African Communities over the last 8 years thanks to your support and participation.
The international climate of financial recession , Brexit, global instability and concerns in Europe have cut charitable donations by half in the last 18 months. Many small charities in Africa and in Europe have not survived.
We are lucky, 75% of NWI support is volunteer input, donations in kind like skills and and practical support as well as donations of School materials, water tanks, building materials etc. . In the last 18 months we received over £ 70,000 in non cash support. The other side of that has been cash donations fell to an all time low in 2016 to £4,000. We really need your help now. You can also check out our African paterners http://icrossinternational.org/ who have been working in Africa since 1979 As we all know with a 14 % decrease in the value of the pound this has hit all small charities very hard.
This month in October 2016 we are personally asking all of our friends to donate towards our water projects online so we can automatically claim as a UK charity the 25% additional contribution from the UK Government. All charities across Africa are struggling at the moment just as all of our small donors are no longer able to help as they were previously.
I am going to personally ask all of my close friends to anything you can to help us support our communities across which is not something I have requested before in my 37 years in Africa. This is a very difficult time for us but it is a lot tougher for the communities and tribal villages we are working with . We are working with communities struggling to survive, they need New World International right now so we need you.
Please go on line and donate now anything at all , no matter how small £5, £10 will make a difference. We are working among communities that have absolutely nothing right now in a situation where the gap is getting bigger. We really need your help.
This is the First time in 2016 that we have actually launched an urgent appeal to help the communities we serve. We need water , thousands do not have clean water. This means we need your direct support, does not natter how small, but we need it now. Please share with any friends that you know would share our passion to create change and even give us the price of a pint, but now is the time.
Thank you so much for your continued support,
Jennah Louise-Salkleld NWI
