Multicultural Association Of Helsinki Keri Ry Charity Profile
Help NGO Keri bring computers and hospital equipment to Guinea! Our plead for useful material gave excellent results. We are still in need of the funding for sending the cargo to Africa. Please help us to accomplish a benevolent goal!
A development co-operation project Health for Guineans begun in 1999 has given the association a good name in Guinea. Keri ry asked for material donations from health care centers of Helsinki and southern Finland. The gathered equipment together with clothes given by Emmaus Jokioinen were packed in two containers and shipped to Guinea. Meanwhile the Guinean ministry of interior heard of this and contacted Keri association. Large groups of people had fled their homes in both Liberia and Guinea because of warring troops and come to centers for refugees in the south. The government asked Keri to hand the clothing and shoes in these refugee centers. When Keri arrived it became clear that the aid could not touch but a small part of the families in need.
The hospital equipment shipped was distributed to health care centers and hospitals. Keri association has helped to mend the destruction caused during the incursions of foreign rebels. Later the refugee women wished to be trained small business practices and they were taught soapmaking. The production is circulatory and the profits are shared equally.
