Kalash Tribal, Fat Chance and Congo

I wish I could re-blog directly from BlogSpot, but as this isn’t possible, I’m sharing this important link with you. I first came across American Tribal Style dance two years ago when Kalash Tribal were performing at the Mid Devon Show. I was mesmerised by them and sent them a couple of photos I’d taken on the day. Since then I’ve seen them again and followed their activities on Facebook.
Kelley Beeston teaches the troop, as well as performing. But there is so much more to this lady than her dance. I noticed that she travelled to Congo to do voluntary work with women, that’s CONGO, an article in the Guardian a few years ago described it as the worst place in the world to be a woman. So Kelley has fundraised for a fishing net, contraceptives and sewing machines, to help them to help themselves climb out of poverty.These are women who have survived torture and rape, they deserve all the help they can get to change their future. With her husband Kelley has started a Community Interest Company, luminosity.org
These are Kelley’s words from her Facebook page.

Tonight I cried. I cried because a woman who is so very important to me revealed her vulnerable side publicly. I cried because she recognises the need of so many other vulnerable women. I cried because she wrote an appeal – please help if you are able

She included a link to Fat Chance belly Dance blog page where Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman has appealed for help for this important cause.

If you can help in any little way please do. If you can't help financially – I know that times are hard, please spread the word, re-blog, post about it, create a post sharing Carolena's blog, tweet and share on Facebook.
Thank you for reading.

  1. Gilly, I thought I should tell you that when I clicked on that link, it took me to a page with that title, but there’s nothing but a note saying “Sorry, the page you were looking for on this blog does not exist.”

    1. But I went back and noticed the word “Home” in pretty small text below that note, so I clicked on that word, and it did take me to a page with the article about the project. Would this link work better by taking them directly to the page with the whole article?

      It may not make a difference, but I wanted to at least try to help.

  2. Thank you for sharing the story, Gilly. I clicked the link, it says Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist on the page.

I would love to hear from you . . .
