Seven-year-old with hydrocephalus clings to life – Help Needed

Seven-year-old with hydrocephalus clings to life – Help Needed

My name is Khalilah Megan Campbell and I am the Coauthor of the book Foundation of The Guyana Defence Force – A Soldier of Valour Story.

My third quote for the ‘Three Quotes for Three Days’ challenge – an invitation from British author and blogger Frank Parker – comes from Tom Goldtooth, a Native American environmental leader and executive director of the Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN) since 1996. It’s an excerpt from his keynote address, “The Sacredness of Mother Earth,” at the Bioneers National Conference held on October 18-20, 2013.

Subject: Region 10 Christmas Party

Dear family and friends,

The Linden Fund USA and the Ituni International Association are again co-hosting a festive holiday party on Saturday, December 17th at 325 Ralph Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. Tickets are $25. Attendees will be able to tape greetings that will be aired on NCN on both Christmas Day and New Year’s Day in Region 10. Celebrate the holidays with us and send your love to family and friends at home in Guyana.

Last year’s event was our first collaboration and it was a wonderful success. The interaction between Guyanese from these two communities ignited new friendships in our drive to help our hometowns and Region 10.

The holidays greetings taped at our 2015 Party and broadcast on NCN TV were uploaded on our LFU YouTube channel and viewed by many supporters.  Continue reading

United States (US) President, Barack Obama on Saturday recognised the contribution of a young Guyanese lady  in her homeland in the area of care for the elderly, in his address at a Town Hall meeting in Peru.
