A Note from Nailah
I have lived a very exciting childhood on the island of Mauritius, playing under the sun at the beach where as a child my only concern was to protect myself from sunburn.
The only time I suffered from diarrhea in my childhood,(as per my sister's records), is when I took a whole pot of Nutella and hid into my closet to indulge on my wonderful big pot of hazelnut spread which few can resist. It felt divine but a few hours later, things turned sour. I suffered from diarrhea for 2 days and from then on my mum banned Nutella from the house.
Children in Bangladesh suffer from Diarrhea and are at risk of death not because they have been greedy with Nutella but because they contract the disease and other parasites from the floor. A simple measure as changing the floor into concrete can help save lives.
So, help me in helping the children of Bangladesh in living up to their 5th birthday by providing them with a healthy environment.
For my friends in Mauritius, if you cannot use your credit card, give me a call and we will find a way to make your donations reach those children.
My phone number is: 54741985
For my dearest people of France and elsewhere (Hong Kong, Zimbabwe, SA, London and elsewhere), I know that I can count on your kind generosity.
For everybody else who is going to help make this campaign successful, my sincere thanks.
Thank you for your support!
Did you know that every 5 seconds, a child under the age of five dies from preventable causes? Diseases like diarrhea are common all over the world — let’s be honest, we’ve all been there. But without adequate resources, like a clean and safe home, a common case of diarrhea can be fatal.
It is a heartbreaking reality. It is an enormous barrier to poverty reduction. The U.N. Millenium Development Report recently released the news that the Goal to Reduce Childhood Mortality by 2015 is struggling to meet its target achievements.
It is time to look to new solutions — simple solutions — that can save lives. Flooring projects, such as replacing dirt with concrete can reduce childhood diarrhea and parasites by nearly 50%. Just by replacing the floor. And it only costs $500.
I know there are a lot of great charities out there. I’ve created my own fundraiser for ARCHIVE Global’s High Fives Campaign because I believe that a child’s home should support his or her growth and development, not undermine it. Preventing childhood death is as simple as replacing dirt floors with concrete floors. I hope you will join me by giving whatever amount you can. It doesn’t take much.
For every $500 raised a family in Bangladesh will receive a new concrete floor and a solid foundation for a healthy future.
Thank you for your support and for helping give our children a healthy future!
