Since April 23 of this year, these funds have helped in the following way:
"[N]eeds vary from place to place and from time to time. At Rubaya, the place where we helped IDPs from our church association the last time that I sent a report to you, we helped the people there with blankets and food items. This time, however, there was some NGO that had already distributed blankets to the people there, so that wasn't a need. Instead of blankets, we gave them washbasins which they did need."More Information
