    Am a physically disabled black brother looking for assistance on behalf of my brothers and sisters.The name of our society is HOPE FOR LIFE.
    We sincerely hope on BLACKPLANET there is a possibility of getting a positive response.Some of our brothers and sisters are so poor to the extent that what to eat just once a day is a real hurdle.Regarding education, the least said about it the better.Hopefully, this our humble request will touch a heart for us to breath a hopeful life.This is our conviction.
    Thank you and GOD bless all.
