APPEAL by the OGIEK

16.04.2007

The Mt. Elgon Ogiek hiding as refugees in Chepkitale forest are calling upon their well-wishers to assist with food donations, medical supplies and clothing.

Apparently the Red Cross or state and religious organisations haven't been successful to reach those strata of the populatiion in Mount Elgon, belonging to the minority Ogiek, who are too afraid to come down the mountain.

Also they fear by going downwards that they would meet the Sabaot militias (their enemies) and que for food or even meet death.

Many children and elders have died already. It is a serious disaster.



Please contact us for your specific contribution!

Help us Ogiek to help these Ogiek who are suffering most.

We know how to reach them and make your support successful.

Any assistance will be usefull sooner than later.




Regards

Kiplangat
