It may be over two weeks late, but we would like to wish all our followers a happy, healthy & wealthy 2014!
A lot has been happening at C.R.E.E.R’s base in France and in Cote d’Ivoire.
The founder & Vice President’s daughter (also a member) are due to leave for Cote d’Ivoire under their own financial means in 3 weeks time. Flying initially into Ouagadougou, they will go south via Ghana doing some research.
Due to the quietness of our promise in Abengourou despite much personal financial input into the trip in March 2013 by the founder, it seems that the promise of land was yet another false hope. After the promises made in Ayame in January 2011 of a tract of land, the future was looking desolate a few weeks ago, but we will not give up!
There are other leads and ideas to get C.R.E.E.R on the road to starting up in Cote d’Ivoire which sends two of the team southbound. The idea is to look at other plots of land & establish if they are feasible to be bought; this is a major problem in the country, land is often squabbled over within families & the title deeds never come to fruition. The board want to be sure that the land that will be built upon won’t be retrieved after a building has been constructed. In the mean time, our Treasurer is holding onto our funds ready to use them when there’s a green light.
2013 was a long journey, hopes, promises & false promises; it was difficult for the whole team to believe that this would be a reality! We need support on a worldwide basis. To help us; we’re doing the right thing, however long it takes. Rome wasn’t built in a day but then again there are children out there NOW who need help, who have been trafficked.
Moreover, we’ve now also got word of children being trafficked for rubber & teak plantations, the need is forever growing!
Looking forward to keeping in touch with supporters with hopefully good news in early March!
