Thursday December 1, 2005

The Special Appeal Fund set up by COCORIOKO  yesterday for assistance to offset the medical bills of the Editor of  the FOR DI PEOPLE  newspaper  in Freetown , Paul Kamara,  rose to  U.S. $ 700 yesterday , with pledges  of $200 each  from former Member of Parliament, Mr. Dauda Tombo Bangura and the Editor of the PATRIOTIC VANGUARD  in Canada , Mr. Gibril Gbanabome Koroma.

Yesterday, the COCORIOKO Editor , Rev. Wilfred Kabs-Kanu , with a personal pledge of $ 100  , opened the Appeal Fund . Minutes after the appeal was published, Mr. Moijue KaiKai of the United Kingdom pledged 50 British Pounds ( Which we are estimating to be U.S. $ 100 ) and Mr Shyk Tunis of the U.S.  followed with an $ 100 pledge.

If after 2 pm tomorrow, no other person volunteers to handle the banking aspect, COCORIOKO  will set up the account at the Bank of America  or the Wachovia Bank in Franklin Township, New Jersey.

We want to express our sincere thanks to all who have responded so far
