save the CHILDREN OF BORNO (COB)

Tens of thousands of orphaned children from new born to young adults are the innocent by-products of the recent devastation caused by Boko Haram.
We could look at the random headlines and ask, "What can I do?"
There is something we can do that WILL make a difference,  we can send our loose change to make a genuine change to a vunerable childs life.
We realise that we can not save every child, but we can help 24 and maybe 24 more after that.
Fiona Lovatt, a New Zealander, has been in Kano, Northern Nigeria since 2011. She needs help to raise $5000 Australian dollars to rent a suitable property where the most vulnerable children can be raised in a family environment with live-in teachers, chooks and gardens.
I met Fiona 35 years ago when she was my teacher, now she teaches and cares for those underprivelaged and the most needy in a voluntary capacity.  She has collegues on the ground in Borno.
Over the years I have supported and helped Fiona where I can, today I cannot do this alone and I ask for you to join me in helping her on her quest to change lives of those displaced and orphaned.
Fiona has made a difference to many.  She is an inspiration and my role model.  
Our current goal is to raise funds to accommodate some of these unfortunate children in homes.  We require funds for rent, living, food and clothing so that the children will have a permanent home, they will become educated  and cared for long term.
Fiona has had many projects that have positively impacted and changed the lives of many.
Fiona is known for her amazing skills and life changing campaigns.  Fiona started BOOKS WITHOUT BORDERS New Zealand/Nigeria;  You can read about this campaign on the following link.  
Fiona is a passionate humanatarian, who is currently living in Kano, Nigeria.  Fiona is making a difference so please join with me in supporting her here from Australia.  Every donation no matter how small WILL make a huge difference to the lives of many.
