(PRWEB) September 7, 2004
The starvation of the Sudanese peoples is tragic; there have been tens of thousands of deaths related to malnourishment due to a war which has been ravaging the country for the last 18 months. The Sudanese war has created more than 2 million refugees, which are now in urgent need of food and medical attention. However, hope is within sight for the Sudan. There are a host of charities and organizations working with the Sudanese government to help resolve this tragedy. The George Haligua Foundation has aided countries such as the Sudan by supporting organizations that are working the trenches, such as World Vision.
World Vision has a strong participation in aiding the Sudanese people. They have airlifted relief suppliesÂincluding 4,800 plastic sheeting for shelter, 9600 blankets, and 10,000 jerry cans for water. The plastic sheeting is providing much needed shelter to protect displaced people from the rainy season's heavy downpours. World Vision has negotiated an agreement with the World Food Program to distribute nearly 25,000 tons of food to 250,000 displaced people in Darfur.
World Vision has just finished construction of the first of six primary health clinics to serve displaced people in south Darfur, with plans to eventually reach 100,000 people with vaccinations, curative services, and supplementary feeding. World Vision also plans to set up temporary classrooms for children. World Vision also plans to provide health care, education, and much-needed trauma counseling for children in several camps.
The relationship between World Vision and the George Haligua Foundation is new; however it is the start of a prolonged collaboration to fight modern day endemic problems such as malnourishment. It is important to note that for every person that is helped through charitable means, at least ten more appear. The fight to make our world a better place is an ongoing battle which is fought every day by World VisionÂs and George Haligua FoundationÂs volunteer workers alike.
Direct funding of organizations such as World Vision has proven to be a great success. The George Haligua Foundation goes through a strict verification process with charitable organizations to ensure that any funding will be used with maximum efficiency. To make certain funds will be used towards a particular endeavor, the George Haligua Foundation asks the chosen organization to provide an overview of their operating costs--usually they should not exceed 30%. Charitable organizations whose operating costs are over 30% frequently get declined as the impacts of the donation are lessened and the end result diluted. World Vision has a strong administration with a solid foundation of volunteer workers keeping their overhead costs below the 30% threshold, making themselves an ideal candidate for donations.
The George Haligua Foundation does not accept donations, however they can provide help in choosing a charitable organization that will be able to reflect your contribution to its fullest. World Vision has a proven background and most importantly, proven results. The George Haligua Foundation recommends World Vision as an ideal candidate for donations.
