Cerbios-Pharma SA Christmas Gift
During the last four years Cerbios made caritable contibutions to various internationally recognised relief organizations, including the Swiss Red Cross, Enfants du Monde, Terre des Hommes, and UNICEF.
This year a decision was made to devolve the entire amount to a project in benefit of a small village in Rwanda, Africa.
In nine African countries, the conflicts of the past few years have caused more than 3.8 Million dead persons, while millions of others have been displaced. Nyamyumba is one of these villages where now 114 families are made up primarily of widowed adults and orphaned children of the 1994 genocide.
“Mabawa”, which in Swahili language means “Wings for Africa”, is a Swiss association born in Lugano, to help children in Africa’s Great Lakes region to recover from the absurd massacres they have suffered (for more information see also www.mabawa.org).
This Cerbios Christmas donation wishes to bring some relief to the village of Nyamyumba, which in the year 2004 saw the first true strides towards self-sufficiency, and where today 600 residents give an active helping-hand in rehabilitating the social and economic infrastructures.
We know that our contribution will only be a tiny and humble drop of wealth in an ocean of poverty. However, we are convinced that our gift will bring additional smiles to the inhabitants of this remote Rwandan village and therefore we intend to maintain this action in the forthcoming years in order to provide some continuity.
Thank you for sharing this present with us!
We wish you a Joyful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
