Austin, TX, January 06, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Due to current political unrest in Kenya, violence has broken out resulting in more than 300 deaths and 75,000 people being displaced. Over 1200 of those displaced are seeking refuge in Maai Mahiu, located 75 kilometers Northwest of Nairobi. CTC International (CTC), a non-profit organization based in Austin, TX, announced today that they have the ability to provide resources directly to those refugees.
According to the latest communication from CTC International volunteers in Maai Mahiu, the situation is deteriorating quickly. Food supplies are running low, and shelter and bedding are becoming more of an issue as more displaced people continue to arrive.
In order to continue to bring assistance directly to the people, CTC is asking for financial contributions through their website at www.ctcinternational.org. All contributions will go directly to the people in need. The need is urgent, as the current situation is resulting in bank closures and ATMs running out of money. All donations made are tax deductible.
Founded in 2000, the goal of CTC is to help provide hope and a future for the less fortunate by sharing in the lives of local communities through acts of love and labor. Their education programs, building projects, medical/healthcare assistance, outreach ministries, and AIDS awareness create a better tomorrow.
“Any support at this point is desperately needed,” said Zane Wilemon, founder of CTC International. “There are countless mothers with little children and no food. The people have nowhere to sleep and the situation is looking more desperate every minute.”
To make a donation or for more information, visit www.ctcinternational.org or call the CTC International Office at (512) 769-4127.
