I have visited a small town where my parents lived in Sudan in 2012. The town is named Singa Hai 14, it is located by the Blue Nile and it used to be The Capital of the Blue Nile. It broke my heart to see how the people are severely suffering from lack of clean water, food and various diseases (Cholera, Malaria, Goiter and Kidney Problems). I saw a few people in my neighborhood coming to my parents’ home to get water from the aqueduct. The people were constantly getting water and causing the water to stagnate which was causing an influx of mosquitoes. I also notice that Chinese workers came into my parents’ town and they had opened water canal pipes to move the water around into other towns for irrigation. But the Chinese they did not do a good job at installing the pipes so the pipes broke and caused the constant running water throughout the town causing mosquito/proliferation. The government did not do very much to improve the situation, all what they did is that they supplied the town netting to sleep in side them at night. Luckily, when I went there I went with a supply of medication for myself to prevent malaria and other diseases but, I still got ill with stomach problems. I have visited the youth club while I was there because it is near my parent’s home. For example, there is no television, computer, books, sport clothes or equipment for them to play the game. I had noticed that they were extremely interested in watching and playing soccer because I saw them coming to my parents’ house in the evenings to watch the soccer games if the games were on. What amused me most is that the children were very smart and know most the players’ name on every team, it broke my heart to see how enthusiastic they were watching the games. When I have visited Sudan, I took 2 computers with to give them to my town but, that was not enough to fulfil their dreams. The youth need internet access in an order to use them, so they can improve themselves and communicate, participate and create something in this world they live in; in addition, they need clean clothes, food, water and a clean safe environment. It is a very sad situation when the government doesn’t provide for its people and instead it steals what was to be given to the people. I do not think this is right to abuse our own kind. in my opinion, this is not a human nature because our nature is to use our awareness to see what is right from wrong in an order to help each other unconditionally, that is what is being human kind not like, an animal that kills his own kind in other to survive. Therefore, I came up with this idea to get involved in helping those people who are not luck to make it in this life.
I am donating to them a gift bag of cosmetics from my product line for a fundraising charity in an order to provide these children with all the necessity that they need. Often, we don’t realize how little things are important things until we don’t have them. My company is giving a contribution to the youth of my native country because life has been good to me just by showing me how different my life would have been, if I had stayed there. I want to show my appreciation by providing them with this help and support and to let them know that nothing is impossible and anything can be accomplished through a lot of effort and hard work.
