Say NO to Drugs Day
To commemorate the United Nation's
Assalam Alykum.On behalf of the DONGE LA MOMBASA WELFARE GROUP committee board, we would like to extend our gratitude to all the Donge Members who attended the 26TH JUNE 2013 UNITED NATION INTERNATIONAL DAY AGAINST DRUG ABUSE AND ILLICIT TRAFFICKING EVENT IN MOMBASA today.The few members that attended this event are truly the heroes of our group. If I may name but a few, they included Swabaha, Hamida, Umar Babz, Biggy, Ali Hassan, Saeeda, Salma, Hawaa, Asya and few more. We thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts. I hope each one of you had an eventful day and also received our certificate as a token of appreciation.
Our involvement in this event was to accept an invitation that was sent to us by Reachout and MEWA. It was sent to us on the 24th of June. Just two days ago. Despite being invited in a such a very short notice, we could not turn down this noble cause. We decided to take it on without hesitation any we did not have any major expectations.
Alhamdullah, reports coming from Mombasa have informed us that this event despite only having just a bunch of our supporters turning out, not only was it a successful event in promoting awareness to Drug Abuse in Mombasa, but it has put Donge La Mombasa Welfare Group in the mainstream public eye and media of the whole country.Media Companies from all corners such as Nation, KTN, Citizen-Tv, Radio Rahma, Pilipili FM, Radio Salam and more were all there to witness our participation and they all took notice of Donge.
As a small emerging group, we have today managed to form a community bond with other groups and we have established professional contacts with them. These groups include Reach-out Centre Trust, MEWA, Bomu Hospital, Sheikh Nurein Islamic Centre, Tudor Support Group, Good Hope Rehab Centre, Ganjoni PTC, Innocent Souls Youth Group, Talent Partners Youth Group, Alhamdulillah Women Group , Mtondoni Women Group and few more others.
As a token of friendship and alliance in developing our Mombasa Community each and every group that attended was awarded with DONGE LA MOMBASA WELFARE GROUP Certificate and all these groups showed us their appreciation to our small gesture and they were all impressed by our involvements.
All in all, the triumph of this event is to the combat against this evil epidemic disease that is affecting our ailing community, and that is Drug Abuse.
The whole event was a success and we are all so proud to have taken part in this historic day. Our fight against DRUG ABUSE does not end here. Together with our other objectives, we will continue to work as hard as we can to develop Mombasa. We are happy to take baby steps on this journey, all we are asking from you is is your unity and sacrifice towards our objectives in developing our beloved city of MOMBASA.
JAZAKUMULLAH KHEIR/Rebuilding our community through unity and sacrifice.

The Mombasa Clean up campaign: "Mji Wetu, Wajibu Wetu"
Pirates Beach - May 18, 2013
Inspired by the many complaints brought forward by local residents about Mombasa’s rubbish problem, DLMWG partnered up with the Governer’s ‘Mji Wetu, Wajibu Wetu’ city clean-up campaign earlier this year. We mobilized a diverse group of volunteers (ranging from school children to grandparents) and took on the task of cleaning a part of Bamburi Beach. It was a fun day out in which different members of the community intermingled and worked together to help bring back the beach to its natural beauty. Personal responsibility for the cleanliness of the community is a key component of Donge’s agenda, and we organize regular neighborhood cleanup exercises.
The Ahmed Albeity Wheelchair Campaign
April 19-21, 2013
When a Donge member forwarded a youtube video of Ahmed, a young man from Tanzania who was paralyzed from the shoulders down in a diving accident, we knew we had to help. Ahmed has been bedridden for a few years and was badly in need of a specialized wheelchair that could not only help him move around more easily, it could ease the development of bedsores brought on by laying on his back all the time. What started out as fundraising drive on Facebook quickly went viral on Whatsapp as well. In a matter of just a few days, we had raised enough cash to buy him a much needed quadriplegic wheelchair. With money left over from the wheelchair purchase, we were able to also buy a mouth stick (to self operate a computer), specialized air mattresses, and a hydraulic lift (a device used to help lift patients out of bed), items that will help improve the quality of his day-to-day living.
