I had much obstacles to overcome working on this project.
The researcher who was sending me photos from University of Calabar received sudden computer virus attacks unexpectedly. He could not send me the important photos of suffering women and children in Cross River state. He believes the attacker has to do with the government source.
On the other hand, activities of our NGO is severely restricted by Japanese government to go and provide clean up in Niger-Delta regions. Thus I am approaching to the government ODA (Official Development Assistance) in order to set the ground for activities in Niger-Delta regions. (Conference is on 2013 Dec. 9th)
While we have another option to register the NGO in the United States so that NGO can be operated in Niger-Delta, whichever works earlier we must take in order to implement the project fast. We have a little short of fund to help the researcher now (since he lost his computer and mobile) but as soon as it is given him, he will be going to the site to take new photos or starting the project.
If you are able to help us, and join the community based oil pollution clean-up project as partners in progress, please do so as our community called earth need to be cleaned up fast. If you are willing to take initiative, please contact me below by telephone, email or skype whichever works for you. We very much look forward to talking with you!
