SimplyHelp’s volunteers packed a container for Honduras. Under the blazing summer heat, the volunteers continued work diligently despite of sweat and thirst. A 40′ container of clothing, shoes, household goods and baby needs was shipped to Honduras to aid the needy.

June Activities

With the support of some East Coast Chinese, donations of clothing, toys, office supplies and household goods were successfully received by SimplyHelp in Los Angeles. All goods were loaded into a 40′ container to El Salvador to aid the poor. Evergreen Shipping Co. provided a container to gather the goods, while the warehouse Johnson supplied storage facility.

Upon return from the Honduras trip, the first thing SimplyHelp did was to arrange for the construction of roof tops and cement floors for the poverty-stricken residents living at the dump sites in order to improve their living condition.

For Nicaragua, SimplyHelp prepared a 40′ container full of clothing, food, toys and daily necessities for distribution to the poor. Freight charges were covered by Mr. Ho. The rice supply was provided by a local Chinese business center. And a volunteer’s mother, Mrs. Chan, supplied the cost to the land improvement project on the dumpsite.

May Activities

Prior to going to Honduras, we found out that this country has many children, with 98% of them living in poverty. We also observed that the local city hospital had very minimal stock of medical equipment and supplies. So, upon returning to Los Angeles, SimplyHelp reported these findings to its volunteers, who were saddened by this news. They diligently prepared a 45′ container full of supplies such as air conditioners, computers, clothing, toys, rice, food etc., in hope to share their love towards them.

Ultimate Freights covered the shipping costs. Hong Kong businessman Mr. Huang Hui Chuan supplied new T-shirts. Big Lots provided the food. Hu-Guo Temple and Mr. & Mrs.Chiang supplied the shipment of rice. Huang Hui Chuan. Big Lots provided the food.

Through the assistance of Mr. Ho, we were able to see our Honduras volunteers’ hard work pay off when the smiles of 700 people greeted us. The recipients were very excited to receive food and gifts. This prompts SimplyHelp to vow that we must bring more happiness to them, so that they will have a brighter future.

Volunteers Tina and Serena traveled to Central America on their personal cost, in order to observe and monitor the distribution process and results. Their first destination was Nicaragua, where they witnessed poverty-stricken locals living at dumpsites, a very heart-aching sight, enabling us to grasp the difference of living in heaven and hell. We hope that through SimplyHelp’s efforts, we can bring some improvements to their lives.

Malawi is situated in the inland of Africa, adjacent to Zambia and Tanzania. One fifth of its 118,485 square kilometers is composed of lakes. The population of Malawi is about ten million. 99% are natives, with a small portion of Indian Asians and the descendants of early European immigrants.
Malawi’s economic development has been slow. It is one of the ten poorest countries in the world. Due to natural calamities, there has been much shortage of food. There are thousands of people in Malawi on the verge of starvation. The average GNP is $180.00. Volunteers of SimplyHelp have been busy packing, setting and loading up clothing, food, and household appliances with the hope of sending some warmth to the people in Malawi.
