It's up to you

  Many of you will know Artrum .. he is great guy. He lives in Bishkek and works with orphanages, rehab centers and homeless shelters .  A couple times a year we partner with him to do things like provide coal and vitamins , some times it is to bring food and other times to support kids camps.  He does a lot of work with the Nationals to raise the support needed , and we try to top off if there is a short fall.. Today there is a short fall .  He figures that about 80% of his group of people that normally help him are in trouble them selves right now ..  they are about three weeks into a shut down when the average prosperous family might have 3 or 4 days worth of food , and many work and shop one day at a time. 
  Artrum wrote me today , he started off by saying he understands that times are difficult everywhere not just Kyrgyzstan , so he was not going to ask, but things are getting desperate. He has decided that he should just come out and ask ... "PLEASE CAN YOU FIND ME HELP".  They will put together food hampers and distribute to those in need ..

If you would like to help us with this , I have made arrangements to get money to him through western union ,  and he can arrange the food distribution in the different areas of need ..

So many of you have helped so much this last month that I like him did not want to ask again, but have decided to put it out there and leave it up to you to decide.
