I am afraid I am about to be troublesome again: that is to say, I want money, not just for one thing, but for two different matters..
Yes, I know things are hard, but if you can, please help us with one - or both- of these two requests:
1. Abdullah Djennepo is an orphan, deposited by his distant family with a Marabout in Djenne as a child. He took part in the Marabout's Koran school, but later he wanted to learn to read and write, so he came to M. Diarra's evening class. (See project page). He was an attentive student and learned to read and write, well enough to pass the exams to grant him entrance to the Lycee in Sevare, where he is now first in his class. He needs support and I gave him 100 000FCFA on behalf of MaliMali the other day, in the certain knowledge that someone will reimburse me! The 100 000FCFA will pay for his school fees for a year and for his uniform as well as school materials. It will also pay for his food and lodging with some distant relatives. If you feel up to it, please deposit what you can on the 'donations' page on

2. We are going to do the cataract operations again this year,(for precedent see December 27 2011) and have booked the truck to come up from Bamako at Christmas time again, to perform 100 cataract operations again as a Christmas present to Djenne. We have already had a substantial donation from Australia, but we need quite a lot more. The cost is 3700 000 FCFA, about E 5692. Any one interested? Again- the donations page

And yes, water is still rising...
