Marguerite Schondebare's Fundraiser:

Marguerite's Photo


Marguerite Schondebare


This little girl is from Pibor, S. Sudan.  She is wearing a dress given to her by Dr.Glenn Geelhoed, founder of Mission to Heal, a group that delivers health care to the most remote parts of the world and the most forgotten people of the world. The child has a whistle around her neck and Dr.Geelhoed taught her  how to blow it. A day or so after  this photo was taken, the village of Pibor was attacked by armed rebels and the entire village had to run into the bush for safety. We do not know what happened to this little girl. What we do know is that when she ran away, she was wearing a dress made of a used donated pillowcase that was sewn in my hometown of Southold, NY. She has a whistle she could blow so her family could find her and that whistle was sponsored by someone. The whistle represents a cash donation for the delivery of medical care. No doubt, this child's family received medical attention before the village was burned down.  My group makes dresses out of used pillowcases and britches out of used t-shirts for boys. Each item of clothing has a whistle its pocket that is sponsored by someone. We are hoping to raise enough money for a Mobile Surgical Unit to be used in Central Africa. We already have a truck to pull it, and someone has also donated the trailer, but we need to convert it to an operating room. It will cost about $100,000. After that, we hope to get Mobile Surgical Units in the remote areas of the Philippines. Mission to Heal works in Africa, Asia, and South America. My group is a support group for Mission to Heal. You can donate on my website, and the donation goes directly to Mission to Heal, a registered 501C. Please help. These people are in such desperate situations and we need to recognize their needs.
