A Few Words from the President of ASASE

Dear and faithful friends of ASASE,

In 1979 our association was created following an urgent request from Sister Emmanuelle, who was determined to save the young rubbish collectors of Cairo, the "zabbaleens".

In 1986, responding to my appeal, Sister Emmanuelle launched an all-out campaign to help the young orphans from South Sudan, victims of a civil war, who finished up as refugees having to fend for themselves in the capital, Khartoum.

This campaign has given birth to a number of programmes the success of which can make us all feel proud. The seed sown by Sister Emmanuelle has become a large tree with many branches, thanks to the water –your donations!–, without which nothing could grow; thanks also to the "labourers" in the field, who distribute at best this precious water while working the land.
I would like also to praise the discreet and efficient work of the volunteers of our committees.

No doubt that for three decades, this success was largely due both to the extraordinary charisma of the late Sister Emmanuelle, and to the efficiency of the devoted Kamal Tadros, who has been the person in the field responsible for the implementation of all programs in Sudan.

In 2015, ASASE decided to withdraw from Sudan and to focus all its efforts to support programs set up in South Sudan and Haiti.

Our local partners in both countries are led by two individuals whose professionalism and commitment are admired by all those who know them: the South Sudanese Betram Gordon Kuol and the Swiss-Haitian Jean Claude François.

May we continue through them, with the help of God and yours, to provide support and hope to our brothers sadly in need in South Sudan and Haiti.
