A Special Thanksgiving Message from DotConnectAfrica as we remember Ebola Victims


DotConnectAfrica Trust Wishes you all a happy Thanks Giving. 

In this time of Thanksgiving, I want to express my sincere appreciation to all of you.

Working with you over the past 7 years has been an amazing opportunity for us at DCA.

The history of thanksgiving begins in 1620 when a group of people set sail from England in hope of finding a new land to settle and later became the founding pilgrims of USA despite many hardships and losing most of their people.

Even after so much suffering, they were able to sustain a new life with God's blessing, so they wanted to thank him for everything. And therefore President Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving Day as a national holiday.


As many are expected to travel during this time we cannot forget "Ebola an agent that evokes a lot of fear among us, we are aware of the Ebola outbreak that has affected many parts of Africa and which has also manifested heavily in parts of Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone. We join citizens around the world to solemnly pledge our unconditional support, prayers and wishes to the governments' effort in fighting this disease.


As we celebrate Thanksgiving this November 27th 2014 day may we also pray and offer deepest sympathies to those affected and bereaved families, following the disastrous effects of the Ebola Virus. 


We all have a stake in the battle against Ebola  


In the profound words of Her Excellency Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is the President of Liberia in her Letter to the World, "From governments to international organisations, financial institutions to NGOs, politicians to ordinary people on the street in any corner of the world, we all have a stake in the battle against Ebola. It is the duty of all of us, as global citizens, to send a message that we will not leave millions of West Africans to fend for themselves against an enemy that they do not know, and against whom they have little defense."


 We have confidence the nations will stand up to the challenge and rise again.


Therefore as we celebrate may we also remember these victims and those caring for them and be thankful for every grace and privilege of better living that we often take for granted.


Best wishes from DotConnectAfrica

Yours sincerely,

For: DotConnectAfrica Trust (Mauritius)
