I am hereby greeting you on behalf of Gwalla and Thony Community in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ. As the chairman of this community, I would like to inform you that we will have our first of its kind fundraiser on July 2 and 3, 2016 in the Great City of Sioux Falls, South Dakota and that you are cordially invited to support our fundraiser effort either in person or through donations remittable to our organization’s account if you cannot make it to Sioux Falls, SD on the aforementioned dates. We, as the sponsors of this fundraiser: Gwallei and Thany as well as relatives and friends, are delighted to conduct this resource generating event to renovate our historic Kolnyang Clinic (Kolnyang Primary Care Health Center, see the picture) to serve our returning population from Bor City, refugee, and internally displaced persons’ camps.
Following our congratulatory press release to Aboudit Community and its donors published on The Bor Globe Network earlier today, we hereby once again share a few lessons learned from such an exemplary community development resource pooling initiative as discussed below:
First, we believe we can develop Bor County through different levels of leadership within our community. We can approach development through families, sub-sections, sections, Payams, County, and beyond up to the state, and national level. Aboudit Community has led the way this year with such a seminal fundraiser and we hope other sections within Bor County Diaspora (USA) will follow its suit. We in Bor County Development Association leadership support those sectional and Payam based community development initiatives.
It is just about a week to our long awaited fundraising event in Dallas, TX on March, 12th 2016. If you are in the areas surrounding Dallas and of course in Dallas, please join us for this important event, which is intended to raise funds for the construction of Aboudit Clinic in Aboudit Village.
