where does the money go?

This is an extract from one of the thank you letters we are sent by Medécins sans Frontières / Doctors without Borders.  As well as getting information about current areas of work - the last was about their work in Syria at the moment - we get letters like this from individual workers as a thank you for made4aid donations and to give us insight into personal stories of people who benefit from MSF's work.

This letter arrived in January, from an MSF nurse called Rebecca Cuthbert, and it talks about her work in Liben in Ethiopia, in a transit camp for refugees.   On her arrival there around 50 children a day were being admitted to the camp, with severe malnutrition. The photo above is a picture of Hakima, one of these children, after a few days' treatment.

Every little bit of money we can send contributes to work like this - individual families like this are helped.

The totals of money raised by made4aid have just been updated on the sidebar. The made4aid shop has been fairly busy lately - and we really need donations of items to sell. If you make things yourself, or know someone who does who might be interested - there's information about how to donate items on the made4aid website.  And our email for any queries is:

All proceeds to straight to Medécins sans Frontières / Doctors without Borders.
