A letter to our patron Lord Alton:
 

26th September 2014.

Dear Lord Alton,

I feel very sad and concerned about life in general for people struck by or living with the EBOLA VIRUS in West Africa. Reading the story of the outbreak from Liberia, I see how people I knew sadly lost their lives working as missionaries in Liberia and also how many more not in the 'picture' are suffering from the disease. A whole religious community 'broken' by the disease physically but spiritually strong to stick together.

The diary of Mr Osei-Owusu - attached, does really put me right in the middle of the chaos and the sudden depletion of lives and friends. Bro Patrick and Brother George (Brothers of St John of God) are people I have worked with through our charity in 2 of our target hospitals in Ghana. It is sad that help for them was very limited. I am however encouraged by how they gave up their lives still holding onto their faith as missionaries and servants of God.

May God help all those in such difficulties and may those who have lost their lives rest in eternal peace!

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Ofori-Atta

Lord David Altons response:

Dear Paul,

What a very sad story. Thank you for sharing it with me. What heroes for humanity. May they rest in peace.

David.

Volunteers at Motec Garage do a work out for humanity

In preparation for Motecs freight to target hospitals in Ghana and in support of the income generating project for families with malnourished children at Jirapa district (NUWLIFE), Volunteers have been working hard to package sewing machines and equipments at Hemel Hempstead. Nine volunteers from Hertfordshire and Southend happily worked together for about 4 hours to pack the first 60 sewing machines and about 50 boxes for Ghana. In the end, the tired volunteers chilled out the Taiwanese way in Hemel Hempstead town centre.

With about one third of the job done, a second phase of packaging has been set for Sunday afternoon 21st of September at the same venue in Hemel Hempstead at 10.45am. Gratitude to all volunteers. All invited to the second phase.
