Orphans & Displaced/Homeless Centre

* DEAR MY FAMILIES &  FRIENDLY FRIENDS IN/AROUND THE WORLD, I APPEAL TO YOU ALL KIND HEARTED IF YOU COULD SUPPORT IN BUILDING A CARE CENTRE FOR THE ORPHANS, DISPLACED & HOMELESS IN PORGERA, WHICH WILL GIVE A 2ÑD CHANCE IN LIVE TO LIVE IN A PLACE CALLED 'HOME' *.


Due to the giant Barrick Gold mining in Porgera, owned by Canadians & Zinjin, China, which is located in the remotest part of Enga province in Papua New Guinea, a third world developing country.  The biggest gold mining activities are done in the very hearts of the people, all the villages surrounds this monster company.  It is very painful living with this very thing which is continuosly breaking our hearts and tearing our bodies . We the people regret that if we had known the consequences of this, we would not have let it in the centre of our lives & also the company's biggest fault is 'Did Not Relocate/Resettle us where suitable to live' . We the Porgerans are known as Ipili Indigenous people. We have lost every things which were with us, surrounds us and which belongs to us. All our valuable properties gone, and are displaced everywhere, most villages were dumped and covered with waste chemicals tailings, the company don't have a tailings treatment dam,  it dumps waste direct into our riverine systems. Most villages and clans are no longer existing i.e Apalaka, Waiwanda, Kewainda, Ipatipi, Wakiam, Hupalika, Peyari etc... The very people with children who lived here are now became nomads, displaced and homeless.  The waste dumps: North Anawe, Anjolek, Kogai/Kaiya dumps eroded, y all these villages away and some burried. Few remaining lands: clans fought with each other for land and killed so many people among each clans 'why evil companies greed for wealth only' still lack resettlement.

Many people socialised themselves with the dirty money which was paid by the mining company and involved in illegal activities and night clubs which ended up in HIV/AIDS, parents died, leaving poor children behind. Some parents died fighting over dirt money paid by company, some landowners died as illegal miners, some parents shot by police in the pits etc... 

All these issues caused many people and children homeless, displaced and many orphans have no hope so some joins in the illegal activities, most doesn't goes to school,  many people and children are hungry and thirsty etc.... .  Therefore, Porgera Women's Rights Watch have assissited them with clothes, bedsheets, bedcover, blankets, cooking utensils, eating utensils and food/water.  Also accommodated some of them, and assissted them to buy canvas, cells and some minor materials to build tiny hunts for them in some offcut state lands. In many occasions, I fight with government officials to defend my displaced people to continue to live on some state lands. which really needs a good heart to do all these so of life risking volunteer work (Self struggle). I took assistances and fundings from MISN, Protest Barrick, and most sweet individuals to do all these hardwork.. Please I need more of your kind supports to make this great centre. 

I, Everlyn Gaupe the founder & CEO of this newly formed organisation (Porgera Women's Rights Watch), I am a activist, defender and a advocate for more than 15yrs since when I was many times victimised my thes evil,  greedy companies. I was courageous enough to stand up for my young people since 1998 after my incident. I volunteers with our international partners i.e Minig Watch Canada, Human Rights Watch US, Colombia Law Clinic, etc... Currently, I'm a mother of (6) one drowned at the dump tailings into the river which is traditionally and today we still used as our footway for routine activities such as going forth and back to stores, marketing, gardening, shools, health care etc...Many of my clansmen/people washed away by this waste tailings which the company opens it to drain out it's waste, whoever still crossing the river below the steep, fast flowing sides would be carried away, living the loved ones behind undecided....
I took this initiative to raise funds for 'My People who are really suffering and homeless' to build a orphanage centre where they could stay and be educated and loved also have a find peace and learn some skills and knowledge on how to live into the future life....

The money raised will involve in purchasing of a piece of land to build the centre, materials cost to build the centre, labour cost, transportation cost for materials, set up a school/training for life skills, pay the cooks, the cleaners, the securities, the trainers , etc. One day, some of you could visit the site/centre. 

Therefore, I am raising this fund to support my Ipili Indigenous community who have a bright future but just roaming on the streets of Porgera helplessly without plans to proper but just hunting for scavengers of food and stop those who are hunting for ramnant gold which they always hurt themselves and finally die...
Please I appeal to my friends, supporters and fellow activist/defender/advocates around the world, if you think of me in this work, please donate a dollar to make this dream come true and also extend my awareness to many to sponsor or donate to this work... 

I depend on you, my dear friends, together we can make this happen. 

Thank you very much in advance for your kind help.

Yours in human rights,
