Albanian National Child Helpline (ANCH)

In the Spirit of Easter, please see the attached from Altin Hazizaj who is the Executive Director of the Children's Human Rights Centre of Albania/Qendra per Mbrojtjen e te Drejtave te Femijeve ne Shqiperi (CRCA) --

I knew Altin when I lived and worked in Albania in the 1990s and he is a great guy and his sister (Aurela Pano) lives in Worcester.  He plans to be in Boston and Worcester for the last two weeks of April if any of you would like to meet him.

Anyway, I just want to encourage people to donate whatever they can to ALO 116 since it is obviously an important cause to promote children's rights, provide counseling, and protect against child abuse in Albania.  You can read more of the details on their work below and view a short video (3 minutes). For now, their objective is to raise $4,000 in additional support for their work in Albania.  

If you just want to give $10, you can do that via text -- Text GIVE 10312 to 80088 to donate $10 to ALO 116- Albania National Child Helpline (ANCH). 

You can also read more about ALO 116 here -- -- the top of the page is Albanian, scroll down for English if you prefer

Finally, it is a bit too early to judge, but perhaps MAASBESA will also explore ways to work together with the Children's Human Rights Centre of Albania on these issues and help to raise money in the future.

Please forward this email to others.
