Another visit back to Unnamed Village turned out to be a huge success. Expert-Exchange distributed water bottles, sandals, school supplies, and some toys to every child in the village. After this we went around and talked to each person at their homes and listened to their needs. The biggest request was for rice and to get their kids into an actual school.
We are fortunate to have rice next week being donated so every person in the village get's enough to last them a week. Along with that we have had a generous donor who is going to sponsor a child for school. Our goal is once we alleviate some of the day to day struggles we can focus on long term sustainability. Along with that we need to continue to build a relationship with this village and show them we are here for the long term.
Next week we will be also bringing medical supplies in addition to the rice and other basic supplies. If you would like to get involved in any way at all please contact us. Every dollar counts, the amount of change that we are making with minimal funding is truly inspiring. Video below is one of the children very excited to get her own water bottle and new sandals.
Excellent article about the visit;
