Their indomitable spirit endures

Dear Friends of the Azawak,

It has been quite a while since I've shared an update with you, and I'm excited to let you know that Amman Imman has enjoyed a fruitful year accomplishing numerous impactful projects in our borehole communities.

In spite of their hardship, the people
of the Azawak have an indomitable spirit.
While most have met with great success, a few have suffered from the devastating consequences of recent violent storms, including high winds and flash floods -- which have caused great damage across Niger as well as in our communities. In our villages alone, these storms destroyed over 100 homes and killed thousands of animals.

As always, our villagers maintain a positive outlook despite the hardship they endure. Their response has been “Thanks be to God, no one was killed. Only the material has been lost.”

We hope to help them rebuild their villages. Your donation today will go towards these efforts! In the upcoming weeks, I will be sending you a series of updates to tell you more about our activities, which include food help, education support, vocational training, livestock projects, and more.

I also wanted to share the inspiring story of Christina Lange, who is raising money and awareness for Amman Imman during her bike trek across America with her friend Marcus. You can visit their blog, A Vagabond's Itinerary, like the Facebook page about their journey and contribute on Christina's fundraising page. Go Christina!

Yours for the Azawak,

Ariane
