Most of these people are not able to knock on our doors. . .
Dr. David Cleveland: " We were all Refugees,
now many other Refugees are in need of our help .
Most of these people are not able to knock on our doors,
because they barely know where they are.
But they can, and are, knocking on our hearts. And refugees
are knocking on my heart every day.
My last large venture into
assisting was with people stuck in Nigeria, while the
Biafran War was raging on. I called all of the aid agencies,
I took flyinglessons, as my idea was to fly the women and
children out of Nigeria onto the Ivory Coast. The result of all
of the aid agencies was "I wasn't needed, they had everything
However, the newspapers showed a different story of dead
So I gathered some of the glossy pictures and stapled them
to stick . The pictures showed the children in the war, with
their huge bloated stomachs and weak bodies. I than went to
downtown Boston and with a paper coffee cup and started
asking for money, everyday for many months.
Note: do not use a coffee cup-
a woman passerby dropped $.50 cents into my fresh hot,
warming my hands, coffee. It looked the same as my
It was winter and cold, and yet enough money was gathered
to purchase a printer and with those leaflets we were able to
buy $500 dollar ads in the Herald Newspaper. Soon with the
Help of Richard Steckle Dr. Michal Rees and April Lee we got
into action and hired a plane (much bigger than what I had
qualified on) and airlifted women and children to the
3 Hospitals we had built, and supported in the Ivory Coast.
We had a rotating roster of stipend Doctors and
Nurses arriving at the hospitals. We found homes for the
women and children refugees to share until the war finally
ended. A big success then, and Now I can invite all of you
to help, in any way you're able.
So I know that I can do this, and even better. You'll notice
no coffee cup this time.
I have worked as a Minister, a doctorate, without religion.
And have worked as a Naturopath for 40 years.
My B.S was in Earth Science and secondary ,
Education, these will also be useful.
I was Granted a Masters Degree in Critical and Creative
thinking from the University of Massachusetts and am
going to use this now, along with other training to build
communities for the homeless, foodless, love and
companionship-less, and safety and security-less. With
medical care, jobs and communities they can stay at, and
build a future with.
A Greek Gentleman is now in negotiations with Greek
politicians to purchase two Islands that are vacant, in the
Lesvos area of Greece and to make them suitable for refugees .
Some of our work will be to help this Gentleman
to coordinate and arrange for all of the
building and infrastructure needed to make the areas
In addition to the above, we will greet, document, and
let authorities in town have our findings, which should
help the area get some control back in the Island of Lesvos.
There are 108,000 Migrants, who have escaped by boat, to
Lesvos with 1000s more arriving daily.
The Islands Native population is 89,850.
We will buy a few Apple iPhones, for communication needs.
And then download the 90 language translator apps to those
phones from Google. That will end the confusion, fear and
mistrust many Politicians, Police, Customs officers, Aid
Workers and of course the Refugees have because of
their language differences- -neat hunh?
We need to raise money for all of the above and then
to travel and set up our plans. We will be
able to hire small groups of refugees that would like
to help build our projects.
And of course we will purchase food, clothing and baby needs.
Making sure that everyone is housed fed and clothed.
If this is a success we will approach other areas with our
successful plans and workers.
You're also welcome to help!
Starting these projects now will save many millions of lives. It
will also benefit Greece, and allow the Greek People of
Lesvos to have their town return to normal, and to benefit from
the new population of people".
Love, Hugs, Kisses and THANKS!
