Helping Libyan Children with Cancer NEW
After the revolution last year, it became apparent that, with Libya in turmoil, it would take time to create a new infastructure and for help to reach the many in need.
A group of international wives of Libyan men, teamed up on facebook and through Yusef Abubaker Memorial Trust, we created a fundraiser for Libyan Children with Cancer.
Last month we donated 1865 to Tripoli to buy medication (in conjunction with the requirements of the consultants and staff), blankets, pillows etc; we have also been successful in revamping a fairly dank room into a wonderful playroom for the children and their families.
Today Thursday 4 October, sees us off to Benghazi to visit family, but no trip is wasted for us. We have arranged to donate to, and visit the Children's Cancer Hospital in Benghazi and work with them to do similar work.  We also have potential volunteers in Benghazi keen to carry on our work in our absence and we will have a meeting to discuss this further during our 2 week visit.
I am contactable via email and facebook Alison Ann Abubaker. My phone NEVER works in Benghazi.  Updates to follow for both Tripoli and Benghazi.
