Thank you letter from Katrin...

Dear all,

A sincere thank you to everyone who donated supplies for the victims in Jos.

There was an overwhelming response from people in Abuja and Lagos, and supplies have flooded in. I also received calls and emails from all over the world, from people asking how they could donate. First City Monument Bank in Niger State held a collection of funds for Jos among their staff.

In response to this concern and desire to help, the Nigerian Red Cross/Crescent have set up a Jos relief fund, to which you can donate directly:



ACCOUNT NAME: 0430010005230

SORT CODE: 044080439


Here in Abuja we have sent seven 4x4 trucks and one bus full to brimming with supplies.

People donated huge quantities of food and water, clothes and shoes, many of them newly bought for donation, medical supplies (to treat gunshot and knife wounds, broken bones and pain), water sanitation packs, towels, bedding, camp beds and toiletries.

The Regent and St Saviour's Schools joined the effort, and children donated very generously. Staff at Management Sciences for Health contributed clothes and sacks of beans. Eko Hotel in Lagos donated bedding and towels.

All of the Abuja donations have been delivered to Jos and have been distributed fairly to those in the refugee camps. The Red Cross/Crescent have been careful to ensure wide distribution, including rural areas, as well as to those who fled to neighbouring states.

I have attached some photos of some of the supplies arriving in Jos. I also attach a letter to all donors from the Red Cross/Crescent.

People in Jos have been very aware of, and moved by, your solidarity and support. The supplies that you donated have been invaluable in this time of crisis.

With enormous thanks,
