The communities in Kisumu continue to rip the abundant health benefits from feeding on Spirulina distributed from IIMSAM Zayed Center.

Beneficiaries continue to convey their heartfelt most sincere thanks to the IIMSAM organization and the Donors who have so far continued to contribute towards this mission as visibly demonstrated from their deep concern towards ensuring the sustainability of the programme in Kisumu. This is a huge contribution towards their ensured improved health through feeding on Spirulina.

It is for them a platform for such a rare unique opportunity to help them live quality life and help them steer clear from challenges and dangers of malnutrition hence its related side health complications and subsequent fatal eventuality.

They continue to nurture hope for continued similar and such support including where possible to be considered for other sustainable programs that could better improve their lives and living standards. Their hopeful wishes are anchored on being considered for poverty eradication initiatives, the likes of involvement in economic empowerment programs, hunger reduction initiatives, Health and education programs.

All our Spirulina beneficiaries reside in slam areas of Kisumu Kenya. They live poor substandard life down the ghettos of slam environment with their helpless families. These families survive on less than a dollar per day. Their children have no opportunity to go to school. We IIMSAM however wish to incorporate as many of these children as possible in 2016 IIMSAM school program.

We therefore appeal to our willing donors to continue their support with IIMSAM, prospective donors and those who have pledged already school supplies, desks etc to support Secretary General Maradona’s continuous appeals for funding to secure the sustainability of the various lifesaving programmes for the long run since our programmes has a huge demand recipient base and upkeeping within the school and feeding program for assured sustained health, quality of life and educational needs in preparedness for equipping them with their future skilled manpower requirements to help them lead normal quality life.

We extend the same invitation to the willing donor investors to come to Kenya and cease the existing diversity of opportunities existing in various investment sectors including education sector, Health – including occupational/physiotherapy, hotel industry, tourism, transport, real estate, petroleum, other services service provision, etc so that they can donate a small part of their profit earnings made from their investments to help promote the activities of IIMSAM. So far we thank all the hands which have extended their kindness with concrete deeds in helping IIMSAM make progress with its activities in the past, present and in the future.
