Support our Efforts – COVID-19

I’d like to support Encore de la Paix’s effort to provide emergency relief from the impact of Covid-19 to Gabonese communities in the COVID-19.

You can contribute by Paypal or credit card.  Our fiscal sponsor, FJC, located in New York City, no longer accepts checks.  FJC continues to ensure that donations are tax-deductible  (see small print below.)

By credit card: Click here to make your donation on line.

Here’s a sampling of what your donations will provide:

$15 – 1 box of basic staples that includes: 5 kilograms of rice, 1.5 liters of cooking oil, 800 grams of tomato paste, 3 cans mackerel fish, 1 pack of sugar, 2 bars of soap.

$50 – 30 homemade masks, locally made by a women’s collective that has the added benefit of providing employment for women out of work.


The small print:  As a participant in the Fiscal Sponsorship Program administered by FJC, all contributions made to the Encore De La Paix account maintained at FJC are fully deductible to the extent allowed by the Internal Revenue Service, as FJC is a registered 501(c)3. Donors will receive a tax substantiation letter for their contributions in excess of $250 or more.  For more information on FJC, check out their website:

    Bonjour à tous
    Je veux vous dire que ce que vous faites est tout simplement UNIQUE. je salue toutes les personnes qui contribue à apporter un peu de fraternité, c’est formidable. Pour avoir la PAIX, la fraternité entre êtres humains garantie la Paix du monde. En un mot comme en cent, MERCI à tous, aux américains et aux gabonais, particulièrement aux ressortissants de Doumandzou appelé aussi le Centre Du Monde ou CDM

    I hope that for 2019 we have our best fund raising effort ever and we are able to carry on our efforts working side by side with the local NGO’s. I know that for me it will be very exciting to return to Abam Eba. I left Peace Corps service in 1964 and it’s hard to to assimilate that it’s been 52 years since I last worked on the school in Abam Eba. I’m sure things have changed and many of my friends are no longer but I’m absolutely positive that the same welcoming spirit will be found still in place.
