The Order of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts of Jesus and Mary (a Private Association of the Faithful within the Diocese of Steubenville, Ohio) initiated the “Just One Dollar for Africa” Campaign which seeks to assist our African brothers and sisters in the midst of their present unprecedented crisis.
Figures released by the United Nations World Food Program (Dec. 16, 2002) estimate that 38 million African people currently face starvation, and still more in the months ahead. The Just One Dollar for Africa Campaign seeks to gather funds for the acquisition and distribution of food and care to those African peoples in the gravest needs in regards to the starvation crisis and the orphan crisis.
This campaign guarantees that 100% of each dollar will go directly for the acquisition and distribution of food for the starving peoples of Africa and to the care of African orphans. To insure the absolute fulfillment of this promise that 100% of the donations reach our African brothers and sisters directly, members of the Order of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts of Jesus and Mary have traveled to Africa to establish independent contacts with already existing organizations. These on-site organizations have the infrastructures in place that are working towards the goals of feeding those in the gravest danger of starvation and the care of orphans in regions where these crises are most prominent, specifically in countries such as Zimbia, Zimbabwe, Uganda, South Africa, and Ethiopia.
To further guarantee that 100% of each dollar goes directly to the African peoples, this campaign has received individual commitments from each on-site African organization being funded that donations will be used exclusively for the acquisition and distribution of food and care for the starving and orphans. Moreover, this campaign has received benefaction to assist in the administration of this project so as to safeguard completely that no administrative costs will be deducted from donations.
Could you please help the peoples of Africa in such historically unprecedented need? Who among us cannot spare just one dollar for our African brothers and sisters?
