This is the only photo we have so far of the damage at our micro finance branch run by Fonokze in Aken, which was close to the epicentre of Saturday’s earthquake.  The staff are thankfully safe but our clients are not all accounted for as the terrain is difficult to navigate and they are spread far and wide. 

Thank you for all the messages of support we have received, and we will continue to update you all as we receive more information. 

We have set up an urgent appeal for donations which can be found on the home page of our website.  Please feel free to share these links via your own social media pages. Thank you!
