Yacouba Sawadogo-The Man Who Stopped the Desert

Hi! This fundraiser is to help aide Yacouba Sawadogo (commonly known as the man who stopped the desert) in his moment of sorrow. I would love to list all his accomplishments here but I think these links will provide you more details about the man and his dedication. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yacouba_Sawadogo https://youtu.be/yNRyvhapKGo https://youtu.be/wezxNnkcsW8 https://youtu.be/dkeEJ4NoENc Although this man is no stranger to hardships and calamities, he is currently going through one of the most heartbreaking moments of his life. A sudden man-caused fire has consumed part of his forest on the night of 12/13/2020 and sorrowed the now 74 years old Man. https://www.burkina24.com/2020/12/26/burkina-faso-une-partie-de-la-foret-de-yacouba-sawadogo-devoree-par-un-incendie/?fbclid=IwAR0GhOXfrj-LpMZGziq21Ug2xVrL8RNKNL1c5U-r2bJmOy3E5O4mmU-igOw Thank you for your Support and God bless you.
