Lifesaver Winter Blankets - Yemen
Winters in Yemen can be deadly for the homeless and destitute. CAI has been aiding the poor in Yemen caught in the conflict of violence for years. There is a real need to distribute lifesaver blankets to the interiors of Yemen by December 15. We need 1,400 warm blankets that comfortably accommodate 2 adults and a child warding off the cold and possibly saving lives.
CAI has taken on five new water well projects in November, bringing potable water to areas where people have not bathed for weeks. Seeking water is a terrible burden, mainly on school children and the womenfolk who struggle daily for drinking water, which takes an average of four hours every day.
The villages benefiting:
Michungwani, Tanga Region, Tanzania – 1 well benefiting 1 village
Azimiyo, Tanga Region, Tanzania – Twin wells benefiting 1 village, 2 schools
Maji Ya Shamba, Kondoa Region, Tanzania – 1 well benefiting 1 village
Mji Mwema, Arusha Region, Tanzania – 1 well benefiting 1 village
Lolkisale, Arusha Region, Tanzania – 1 well benefiting 1 village
Approximately 32,000 people will benefit from these projects costing about US$57,000.
Al Mahdi School – An Update
This school, initially gifted by CAI in 2017, which educates about 500 students from a mostly farming community in the remote village of Hallour, UP, India did so well, CAI donors decided to add a library, a computer lab, and tile all floors and walls. It is a beautiful school in a rural setting and the poor children have an excellent opportunity for quality education. Sharing a few photos.
