Friends of Burkina Faso is in the final week of fundraising to bring much needed basic support to vulnerable families displaced or otherwise struggling as a result of extreme violence in Burkina Faso.  

We have a new stretch goal AND a new matching opportunity. 

Our goal: $86,000. As an example from proposals we've received, this sum could support vetted local organizations to provide food (beans and rice at a cost of $.29/meal/person/day) to a portion of 2600 internally displaced people who have recently arrived in one area around Ouahigouya.

And yet, we know this is only one potential way to respond to needs of many people across the country. Whatever we achieve, together with you, will lend help where the need is greatest and buy time for the government and aid organizations to expand their assistance capacity.  

To date, we have raised $24,000. We thank everyone for their support so far but this is now only 28% of our target. We need more to reach our goal and have the impact to which we aspire. 

Matching opportunity: $22,000. A generous donor has just promised to match all donations, beginning today, up to $22,000!   Please donate today and double the impact of your donation.  Even if you have already donated, please consider donating again so that we reach our goal and bring relief to this beleaguered part of our beloved Burkina.  

You can donate in 3 ways: 

  • Down below on our website (choose “Emergency Humanitarian Relief Project”) 
  • On our GlobalGiving project page 
  • Via check (to: Friends of Burkina Faso, PO Box 395, Chester, CA 96020) 

Once again, we have raised $24,000 but we need to raise $86,000. We have 7 days left and $22,000 in NEW matching funds at stake—and within reach if you help.    Please donate today and double the impact of your donation!   

Thank you sincerely for your generosity, 

Friends of Burkina Faso board and volunteers
