My dear Katja
I wish to sincerely thank you and your husband, all your friends of ASHIA Cameroon, for all your love,
compassion, sympathy, concern, attention and your generosity to the orphans and vulnerable children
of this area. Thank you for sharing with them. Because of the pandemic of HIV and AIDS, many children
are orphans and have no means to education, nutrition, medical care. So your kind gesture is always
like a miracle to these children. From your generosity, a few children were helped: to go to school,
to have clothing and to have something to eat. Some were operated upon; two of them
with serious handicap that cannot be operated have got a tricycle. For all these, I say thank you
on behave of the children.
Thank you and all your friends for this great humanitarian work.
We promise all of you our prayers. God will keep and protect you all.

Good evening. Peace be with you. I am very happy to read from you once more. Thank you very much for the lovely letter.
Yes, I am with Sr. Clementine in the same convent now. She has sent some children to Njinikom for bone surgery.
Many thanks for your generous assistance. I always feel very happy when I see the children who go for this operation
happy that they can use their limbs like other normal children. May the Lord bless and reward you, your husband
and all the other persons who are contributing money to help these needy children.
Meanwhile I want to assure you
that there are also many poor children in my new school in Mbangang.
I hope you will be able to pay us a visit as you say
and then you can see them for yourself. The ribbons will be very useful
because most of our female students do sewing
as their main subject. If you can get us some sewing machines also, that will be highly appreciated.

Christina Ntala kam 1979 in Nkongsamba zur Welt. Ihre Eltern verliessen Ndu und wohnten fortan in Nkongsamba. Ihr Vater,

starben in Nkongsamba. Sie lebte fortan alleine mit ihrer alten Mutter und ihrer jüngsten

welche alle unterernährt waren.
Dies war am 20. März 2012. Das Spital übernahm die Kosten für das Essen und die Behandlung.
Den Kindern und der Grossmutter ging es bald besser.
Die Mutter verstarb kurze Zeit später am 31. März 2012. Sie war
spät ins Spital gekommen.
Die Grossmutter verliess das Spital mit ihren zwei Enkelkindern und war überglücklich, dass das Spital ihnen geholfen hatte
und alles versucht hatte,
um ihre Tochter zu behandeln und alle von ihnen zu ernähren.
Dies ist nur ein Fall von vielen ähnlichen von verzweifelten Menschen, welche täglich den Weg ins Spital von Shishong
und vielen weiteren Spitälern Kameruns finden.
Das Spital ist sehr dankbar, dass diese Kosten durch Ashia-Spenden übernommen wurden.

For this short while the children have gain a lot of typing knowledge. All of them have mastered the Key board and a few of them can type
now without looking at the keyboard and we hope that as time goes on all of them will pick up. The practical part of the computer lessons
are done workshop by workshop so as to give each of them a chance to sit on a computer. The children feel so happy and very much

I am leaving now to take an orphan to Njinikom orphanage. I don't yet know how I will get the money to pay, but I trust
that God will take care. The mother of the baby passed away when the baby was four months old. The father is alive but
really looking very sick and cannot even afford buying milk for the baby. The child taking care of this baby is nine eleven
years old and dropped out of class six in the primary school to do this. The baby is now seven months and smaller than a

Gratitude is one of the hardest emotions to express and thank you, is
not enough and there is no word capable of conveying all that you have
done for the disadvantaged children of Saint Francis Home for Skills
Training and for those you are helping in Cameroon.
So until we reach a world where thought can be adequately put into
words. God alone is the only one who can thank and reword you for us.
All I can do is to offer you in my daily prayers asking the lord to
give you all you need for body and soul.
I got a boy yesterday who can and in-stored the computers one has a
problem. So the the children busy preparing the table for the
computers and the one for the printer shall be ready today. When all
is done we shall take the pictures and send it to you very soon.
I will like to share with you a bit about my work. I am a social
worker and for my many years in the Religious life I have been working
with the disadvantaged, the prisoners, those living with HIV and now
SAFRAHOST, and the old people of Njaivnyuy.
For the HIV I have formed support groups and trained leaders who run
the groups in villages and once a year we visit them and every year we
have leaders meetings to plan the activity of the groups. Seen their
drugs is not coming always when every we get money we go round to
teach them nutrition which is very good for them and the family we
teach them practical cooking so that their are able to cook balance
deity for themselves. I also encourage friends and people of good well
to support us with dresses, shoes, food etc for those who are poor, we
write letters of appeal to get money to pay school fees for orphaned
children in primary school. This year we paid fees for 300 children.
And a friend gave us school bags and pens and books for 100 children.
At the moment we are praying and hopping to get some thing for
September or october beginning of the school year in Cameroon. I will
say more next time.
Please I want to be a member of your group not just a receiver.
So tell me what I can do to be a member of this group.

Dear Kathy and Felix,
many thanks for your kind patience for this justification. One of the reasons was the failure of light and internet not working most of the time. Also i was looking forward to seeing you. However i do understand that you are looking for funds to help many more children. We remain very grateful.
As you can see the children are looking good and the parents very grateful for the help. Sr. Scholastica left this morning with some of the children who came for control. All are very happy and thanks a lot for enabling her to carry out this very important mission. Without you she can do nothing for all those poor children. Thank God for your wonderful love and concern.
I am looking forward for your coming next year for the documentation of this work as mentioned. We will do all to enable you do the work. We have so many children again this time. I will send the hard copy of the justification to Mr Ni Gregory for his file.
God bless all your efforts. Thanks a lot. Hope to hear from you if this has come through.

Liebe Katja und Felix Bruhin,
wir möchten uns ganz herzlich bedanken, dass es euch gibt!
Mein Name ist Anni und ich lebe hier seit 5 Jahren in Sued-Westen Kameruns (4 Stunden entfernt von Bamenda) in Fontem zusammen in einer Gemeinschaft und arbeite im Krankenhaus «Mary Health of Africa», das zusammen mit den Einwohnern 1966 hier aufgebaut wurde. Wir haben eine Chirugie, Männer-, Frauen- und Kinder-Station, Maternity und eine AIDS-Station. Wir helfen diesen Patienten besonders mit moralischer Unterstützung, aber auch mit Medikamenten. Wir bringen mit Spenden das Projekt «Milch fuer Kinder von HIV Müttern» vorwärts. D.h. wir geben künstliche Milch (Guigoz1) für Kinder bis 6 Monaten, deren Müetter diese Krankheit haben, um diese nicht durch die Muttermilch weitergeben. Es ist wirklich ein Erfolg. Bis jetzt geben sich die Mütter wirklich Mühe, ihren Kindern zu helfen.
Wir haben einen Kindergarten «Morning Star» Dr. Tim erhielt vom Waisenhaus «Good Shepherd» Bamenda einige Spielsachen, Rucksäcke und Stofftiere. Unsere Kinder konnten ihre verschleissten Rucksäcke endlich aussortieren. Sie waren so glücklich. DANKESCHÖN für eure Hilfe!!!
Ich habe euren «Flyer» gelesen klasse! Auch der Name Ashia wie passend! Wenn ich die nächste Change habe, ins Internet zu kommen, werde ich mir eure Internetseite sehr gerne mal ansehen.

Your impact of assistance to the Health Centre like the antibiotics, wheel chair, files, pens, bags, computers etc. was really of help to us. Forceps and other instruments are being used in the Maternity and Dressing room. It has helped the staff, H/C and community.
Old people were very happy to have their gifts as you will see in the pictures and the letter which a blind old pa wrote to me sending thanks. Health committee village members had bags and they too were very happy and gave me potatoes to eat in your name since the potatoes cannot reach you, as a sign of gratefulness on what you have done to their Health Centre and community people as well.

The Reverent Sister in charge of the orphans with the gifts for the children was so happy. Therese and Brendan said they were going to intensely their learning of the German Language. They are 17 of them Novices in formation. Shisong now is very cold.

Hello good day and may the good Lord richly bless you this day and for evermore. You know we did not think you tell you some of our little experiences with the lenses. Thank you very much for the suggestion. You know as for the glasses which are bifocal and progressive, we gave to those people who badly needed the glasses which corresponded to them. We gave them and a few we sold at give away prices. This has brought much joy to the people and has also increased our circle of friendship. To the negative lenses we also gave at give away prices. As for the sunshades, for children we gave them free of charge and it made them so happy to have glasses. Those for adults, we give them mostly to those elderly persons who have cataracts and to albinos who find it difficult to perceive light. It has been a wonderful experience. Stay blessed.

Thanks so much for sending us pictures of our children. This is very exciting. Our children in a newspaper in Europe this is wonderful.
Thank you so much for what you are doing to us and other poor and needy children in this country. The baby twins are doing very well. You remembered that I told you that these babies survive because of the hot water bottle you gave to us. They were premature and we know that taking them to the hospital will cost us a lot of money and some one to stay with them for almost a month. We decided to use the hot water bottle to warm them up. They will be 4 month next month and are doing very well and happy. So you and the people working with you can see how helpful you are to our people. We remain ever grateful to you and your husband and all the other people working with you.

After reparing the heart, it is filled again with blood and shoched to start pomping again. These operations have been going on in our hospital here in Shisong since November 2009. Wach for the operations of this month in the near future at www.shisonghospital.org

You do not know the great help you have given to Senosia. You have wiped away her tears for she was so disappointed when her father told her was not to go to the college because of no money and she cried. Katja, this one yearof help is great. May God reward once more abundantly. I do understand alright what you said about your NGO work, I hope and pray that by next year the family should be able. Do thank the donors Ruedi and Roman very much for me.
She did very well in her Religious exams, we are waiting for the results of the common entrance and the first school leaving exams which is still to take place on the 15 -06 -010.
Back here in the convent, we are just as if we in Switland with our micromat wave. Every day specially in the morning, we warm our food, bread and enjoy it. It is actually very helpful.
The rains are heavy here but the crops are doing well, soon we will start eating fresh corn from our own farm. If it were posible I will send you your own share of fresh corn through the internet.
The rain makes it difficult to go through the internet, one needs a lot of patience.
Once more greetings from all to all.

Happy feast of the Acension of our Lord to Heaven!
From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you a million times for the quick good gesture you have shown to me and to Senosia in particular. I have no words to express myself, only God will reward you for all.
Ni Gregory was here this morning to give me all the information. Senosia is very happy and she has written a letter which Ni Gregory will send to you via a friend by hand.
During the first three years in the secondary school, children do all the subjects and it is only in form three that individual children now chose either to do Arts or Sciences.
The work in the health centre is going on smoothly and very easy when it comes to caring of wounds, doing office work and cleaning of places is concern for all the dressing materials, the gloves, the files and so many other materials you gave to us are of great help to the centre. Merci! Danke! Thank you!
The eight hundred thousand francs you gave us has finished paying the X-Ray Bills. Is that not wonderful of you? The x-ray is functional now and we have started doing the x-rays bit by bit and people are happy about it for this helps them from going so far to Bamenda only for x-ray thus risking their lives on the high ways.
Accept greetings from everybody and I wish you good health!

We can never thank you enough for all what you have been doing to our home and to other children in this country of Cameroon. I went to visit our Annext home in Batibo and on my way home i met the kids coming back from school. They were kids from Bali. About 20 of them were having the same school bags that our children in the home are having. I was so happy and I quickly thought of you since you are the ones who brought these bags to our kids. What a blessing. We remain very very grateful to you and all you are contributing for this to happen.

You came last time when some of our kids were in the hospital and you brought money which we use some of it to pay the hospital bills. We are grateful for the black boards. Very useful for the for the kids tolls and all what you brought.

You will see women in Infant Welfare Clinic sitting on the benches, enjoying the place that Ashia.ch helped us to set for them.
The children in the school are so proud of their school. Discover the rest for yourselves.
Most important is the account of all that you entrusted to us under my care (in an envelope sent 2nd week of September).
The balance is already programmed for a young lady who is learning tailoring.

She was given in marriage at 14 years. She has 3 deliveries with four children.

BAWOCK VILLAGE DEVELOPMENT AND CULTURAL ORGANISATION (BAVIDECO)
Thank you so very much for the following items which you personally delivered to the Chairman of the Bawock Traditional Council on 11 April 2009 for delivery to the needy people of Bawock.
The items were:
• one carton of pullovers
• one carton of toys
• fifteen pairs of shoes
• two packets of binding papers
• two cartons of clothes for elderly men
• two cartons of dresses for elderly women
• two cartons of canvas shoes for children
• five mixed picture frames
• one carton of assorted clothes for children
• two cartons of T-Shirts for children.
Thank you so very much for these things which were already distributed to our needy by the committee in charge. From what you might have seen in the village, the entire Bawock Village suffered acts of savagery unheard of in modern civilisation.
While we are thankful for these gifts, the needs are still enormous, if one considers that the bulk of houses and their contents of furniture, clothes and food, as well as food crops and livestock were completely destroyed. It will take time therefore before Bawock gets out of the dismal situation.
BAVIDECO is the apex organisation in charge of the development of Bawock Village. Should you want to contact us for any information, we are readily available.
Again, thank you very much. May the Almighty God replenish your stocks many times over and multiply your blessings.

Dear Katja and Felix Bruhin,
It was a great joy hearing you on the phone. The joy was greater when i heard you are preparing to visit us again. You are very welcome. Some changes have been made. You will beet 3 new sisters when you come. From the ones you met, only Sister Bernard and I are remaining here. We are now a community of 5 sisters. One sister will be teaching in school. Three sisters working in the Health Center and one doing Pastorla work. Part of our community for the moment is the Medical Doctor, his wife and their three sons. And of course the children in the house. We are all well except Ouseni the orpahn boy who went to his maternal grandmother and fell sick. A sister went to bring him to the hospital for treatment today' she is not yet back.
We have helped some children with what you left us for them. Some with clothings, others with treatment and school fees. Part of the money has been used to set up a Nutrition Center. You will see it when you come. We hope to help many more children who are suffering from malnutrition.
Since we have a Medical Doctor now, we are also trying to set up a Small Operation theatre to be able to save some mothers and their children during child birth.
I have had to discontinue my Malaria drip treatment to accompany a woman for Ceaseran Operation at midnight 60 KM away. Anything that can help us have an operation theater is welcome.
While waiting for you with very kind regards
