Newsletter GMA Napoli – June 2024

CLIMATE CHANGE AND DROUGHT 

 

While in Italy we are worried about severe summer heat waves, in the Horn of Africa (Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya) about 30 million people have been in a hunger emergency for the last 6 years between periods of drought and floods. Climate change is being felt there more than ever!

We intervene as best we can THANKS to your help!

NEWS FROM ETHIOPIA

SUMMER SCHOOL for our girls and boys  

Our students are also preparing for their final exams for grades 8 – 10 and 12 and we await their report cards, which we will send to their SAD supporters, no earlier than September. 

Thanks to the Summer School, we will continue to offer our educational support and one meal a day: our children will have the opportunity to make up for their academic gaps, playing, planting trees and learning together.

Let’s remember that education for a poor child is the passport to a better life, and that is why your generosity makes a difference in their lives!

NEW CLASSROOMS at Melka Oda

New classrooms are being built in the Melka Oda area of Ethiopia to allow kindergarten children to continue their primary education. 

Thanks to the Committee for the Fight Against World Hunger in Forlì for their generous donation!

JUNE EVENTS

The month of June has been full of events and activities for GMA Naples that have allowed us to make ourselves known more and more:

 - 14 June: participation at the Suor Orsola Benincasa University of Naples for the "Happy Hour of Volunteering" project with CSV, to bring students closer to the world of volunteering.   

 - 16 June: meeting of the Board of Directors at the GMA Naples headquarters in Licola with volunteers, members and supporters of the Association to say goodbye before the summer holidays and discuss news and updates. 

Many thanks to everyone who has allowed us to do GOOD and do it WELL.

   - 22 and 23 June: solidarity market at the Parish of S. Luca in Varcaturo. The proceeds made it possible to continue to support the WPC project - Women's Promotion Center in the Shashamane female prison.
