Actually, we from the Institute Sound of Shells wanted to organize the Maasai Village Retreat in a small group together with the indigenous people in Kenya at the end of October.
WE HAD TO CANCEL THIS BECAUSE THE MAASAI ARE AGAIN FIGHTING FOR THEIR SURVIVAL.
The rainy season has failed again. Even from last year there was almost no rain. With our last fundraising campaign, we were able to help the Maasai finance short-term access to drinking water for humans and animals. We have also been able to raise EUR 4,376 to build a well for the Maasai community. This would be the second well in this large district and would provide politically independent access to drinking water for the indigenous people and their animals. But building a well costs around EUR 80,000 in total and takes a while.
Until then, we can help the Maasai community with the following concrete measures through donations:
1. Construction of a solar-powered elephant protection fence
2. Diesel powered water pump repair and maintenance
3. Diesel purchase for 4 months
4. Purchase and installation of a solar powered water pump
As soon as these short-term measures alleviate the worst need, we can use everything that goes beyond the donations to build the well. In this way, access to drinking water for the Maasai is secured in the medium and long term. Please donate what you can and want to give - any amount helps. And support our campaign by sharing it in your network. Thank you for your compassion and support!
