  4. Create interest to join and become active in the online community on facebook

To help develop a new sense of community among the poor and struggling refugees in Africa we would like to conduct such a meeting at least twice a month, on the refugee camp in Ghana, but also other parts of Africa such as Liberia, Gambia, Uganda, Cameroon, Sierra Leone and Kenya where we many of our members from our Facebook group are from. If you have a Facebook account then you are invited to join our group here : https://www.facebook.com/groups/helpingafricanrefugees2helpthemselves/


While we have the vision and passion to improve the life of many  refugees and other poor people in Africa, we are faced with challenges in regards to funding. We are therefore appealing to other humanitarians, private philanthropists, organizations and businesses to support our mission so we can effectively help African refugees and other poor people in Africa to help themselves.

Any donation, however small is grealy needed and appreciated, and will be used to fund various community projects to help African refugees to help themselves.
