Kakuma News Reflector – A Refugee Free Press

Letter From the Editor May-June 2009

Posted in Letter from the Editor by KANERE on July 16, 2009

To all KANERE readers here and abroad:

Hello! We apologize that our May-June issue was not published in time due to a lack of the internet service and funds to run the operations as scheduled.

As a new incoming chief editor, Qaabata Boru, I recognize and thank our former editor, bethany ojalehto, for all her efforts. Her great inspirations and dedications have brought considerable changes in the Kakuma Refugee Camp.

Throughout May and June Kakuma was dusty from the wind that blows frequently for almost the whole month. Temperatures were very high. World Refugee Day on June 20th was also celebrated by all the NGO staff and refugees, and a bloody murder occurred among other events.

We are strengthening our commitment to a free press despite the challenges and limitations to carrying out operations.

KANERE appeals to any interested donor to fund the project.

I welcome all comments and contributions from all our readers on the planet.

Please address all correspondence to kakuma.news@gmail.com.

Many thanks,

the KANERE Editor,

    Hey Mamush,
    Thanks very much for your comments. Voluntarism is taking too long but together we can keep this creativity alive! You can still write from that end! We shall be looking forward to hear appeals for more rights than more aids.
