Volunteers & Advocates Needed: Help War-Torn Congo Forgotten Youth
Nov 11, 2003

WAR-TORN Africa-CONGO' S FORGOTTEN YOUTH NEED MIRACLE!

ABC NEWS TELEVISION NETWORK's Ted KOPPEL reported from the Congo: "The Congolese population has been largely abandoned to struggle for their own survival". The UK-BASED ORGANIZATION OXFAM has also observed that "The Democratic Republic of the Congo Remains a Forgotten Emergency."

The Congo's War has lasted over 5 years? It has exerted profound social consequences-- killing nearly 4 millions people, halting the formal economy and crippling schools and other social services.

The "Universite Franco-Americaine de Kinshasa" supported by the American University of Kinshasa Foundation has been closed for nearly two years due to the war and the extended humanitarian crisis? It's clear that a crisis of this magnitude requires a massive response. The Ravaged Country needs a Miracle ! We cannot risk leaving this youth of the war out of school.

We desperately need Volunteers or Advocates to help spread the word and advance the consciousness about the War-shattered Congo's Forgotten Youth and bring classroom to life again ! This will involve your participation in emailing our website-based message with your comments http://www.auk-congo.edu/message.html
to your friends and associates. Urge your friends to send the same message, in turn, to their friends, so that the message continues to spread to as many children, students and parents as possible.

You can also make presentations at schools, colleges, youth clubs, place of worship, or Sunday schools.

This is an urgent appeal to You, Students, Children, Parents and Associates to DO whatever You can help send War-Crippled Congo Children and Students to School. Every day counts when the youth is in such a state of crisis ! Yet from their ranks will come tomorrow's leaders or nation's builders. By embracing Congolese Children and Students, you assert the ideal that you are really TAKING IT GLOBAL, and that Love and Compassion don't stop at the Nations borders.

ACT NOW AND GIVE HOPE TO THE CONGO'S FORGOTTEN YOUTH FOR A BETTER FUTURE!
Please contact us as soon as you can at: aukuniv@auk-congo.edu
