We will need to know the name of the head of the household, a complete address, and the ages and genders of everyone in the household. We can probably have shipments out to people anywhere in the continental US within several days. All shipments are free of charge.

The Board has just voted to begin sending out wither clothes and blankets to Darfuri refugees in the US now, even though we will not be getting our December Global Giving fund raiser money ($5,250) until about January 25. Mohammed Abdulrahman and Abdulatif Isaac have already started contacting people.
HELPING DARFURI REFUGEES IN CHAD
One of our members recently returned from eastern Chad, and our Board is talking to them about what they learned there. The Board is also preparing to contact community leaders in Chad to find out if we can help them meet their most urgent needs.
If you are in one of the eastern Chad camps and would like to let us know what you need most, we would love to hear from you. Please contact us and we’ll do what we can.
If we are able to supply camp residents with some help, we will probably do another Global Giving fund raiser to get the money together for it, and go from there. Watch this space for updates. And by the way….
THANKS FOR HELPING US GO PAST OUR GOAL OF $5,000 LAST MONTH!
To donate to us, go here: https://goto.gg/30570 Donations made on that webpage will go to getting and mailing winter clothes, blankets, and our guide to US life to Darfuri refugees in the US.
As of this writing, seventy donors have given us $3,116, if you count our $36 bonus from matching day and the $25 check being mailed to Global Giving for deposit in our fundraising account. Many Darfuris –especially members– have donated to us, proving once again how ready they are to support others in their community. We also would like to thank the non-Sudanese donors, and the anonymous donors, for their vital support.
And special thanks must go to all of the fifty-one people, members or otherwise, who donated a total of $1,980 to us from November 28 to December 1!
The Board has planned a video to post on our Facebook page, as well as another conference call with members over the weekend. If we can raise the $1,884 we need to make $5,000 by December 31, Global Giving will let us post as many projects as we like with no time limit. If we do not reach the $5,000 total by the end of the year, we will still receive all of the money we accumulated, and we will be allowed to try and raise money for another project, for a limited time, in March.
We are now working on cost estimates for doing work in eastern Chad. Most overseas work will probably require more than $5,000, so it would be better if we had unlimited time to raise money for that kind of goal. That means getting $1,884 by the end of the year! So share this link with anyone you think is able to afford a $10 donation and who would like to help DOHS: https://goto.gg/30570
We need $5,000 by the end of the year. If we get that, then Global Giving will let us raise money for as many projects as we want, up to a million dollars for each one. We are already planning how to send clothes to refugees in the camps in eastern Chad, and will plan to do more if we meet our $5,000 goal this time. Please help us, and we’ll help you!
