The Cloudbase Foundation Part 2

Father Frank and the Mill Hill Mission - FATHER FRANK'S BLOG

Cloud Base Foundation website HERE or thecbf.org



Father Frank needs $500 a month to supply his clinic with medicines and nutritional supplements. The clinic is in a mission compound with a school, daycare, and church that services the people in one of the largest slums around Guayaquil. We pledged to raise $500 a month for Father Frank for a year and Ricker Goldsborough was able to find a partner church to fund the obligation. Here is an excerpt from the latest correspondence with Father Frank:

IT WAS GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU. YES FATHER CALKIN SENT THE $5000 TO THE MILL HILL MISSIONARIES IN NEW YORK. THE MILL HILL MISSIONARIES TOLD ME THEY HAD RECEIVED IT. THE MONEY GOES INTO THE CENTRAL FUND AND THEN THE BURSAR IN LONDON UK NOTIFIES ME.

MANY THANKS FOR YOUR WONDERFUL HELP. WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GIVE THE POOR LIFE SAVING MEDICINES. MANY MANY FAMILIES HAVE BENEFITED.

I HOPE YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS CLOUD BASE ARE DOING OK. IT IS WONDERFUL THAT YOU BOUGHT A WATER TANK FOR THE POOR PEOPLE IN WEST AFRICA.

The work Father Frank is doing benefits the poorest and most malnourished in the slums. It was heartbreaking to see the poorest and heartening to see Father Frank's mission sanctuary. He's making a difference.



Nick Greece, USHPA magazine editor and PG comp pilot is organizing a water tank project for a water tank for The Children Orphanage in Ghana, South Africa. The tank will cost approximately $3000 and there will also be an effort to raise a few hundred dollars extra for the school fees the students are required to pay. This project will help ensure the students of the Children's orphanage are getting water from a quality supply.



Belinda Boulter and others are also working on charities in the Big Spring, Texas area and Valle de Bravo, Mexico. More on these in the coming months.

It's our hope that the PG community will continue to add support and provide the inspiration for future worthy charities where we fly. The flying community isn't rich in resource, and we're not expecting these financial obligations be met solely by pilots. What we are asking for is publicity. These are worthy causes that are relatively small in scope and 100% of donations is going directly to what it's intended. Passing the word to a few friends might just be the tipping point toward a charitable goal.

Actually, the world wide hang gliding and paragliding community is huge and has plenty of resources to support this and many other efforts to help children wherever we fly. Getting buy in from the community should be a major goal.

We are very focused. We can't solve all the world's problems, but we can make things better in the locations where we fly: Ghana, Canoa, Dunlap, Big Spring, Guiyaquil.

It is hard to say such a thing is clear.

Significant change, it is.

I'm sorry that's j o c not LOC.

Well said, such a person should be a good sentence, or the future will be more rampant.

The folks at Highland Aerosports prove you just need the right attitude and spirit to make something happen. $290 sounds like a little, but it'll pay for a teacher's salary for a MONTH down in Ecuador with $40 left over!!

Wish there’s a way out for all of us, is there? I hope so.

good job!

I think this is a great post. One thing that I find the most helpful is number five. Sometimes when I write, I just let the flow of the words and information come out so much that I loose the purpose. It’s only after editing when I realize what I’ve done.
