    Subject: Fund Raising for Dr. Nerayo Teklemichael- urgent appeal to all Eritreans and
    friends of Eritrea.
    Dr. Nerayo Teklemichael was a member of the EPLF Medical Team that performed
    miraculous medical work in the mountains and deserts of Sahel during Eritrea’s struggle
    for Independence.
    Dear friends:
    The once crucial member of the EPLF medical team, and frequent emissary to Europe and
    America in search of assistance for the miraculous work that he and his comrades were
    performing in Sahel, is now a victim of two deadly diseases. Yes, Dr. Nerayo Teklemichael
    has been stricken with both Alzheimer’s and ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), diseases
    that have totally crippled him mentally and physically. The Alzheimer’s is in an advanced
    stage causing near total loss of memory, and the ALS has crippled his arms. In other words
    Dr. Nerayo is completely helpless and dependent on others, which right now means his
    wife, Elsa.
    As it happens, Dr. Nerayo is not eligible to the American health service system known as
    Medicare and Medicaid. This means that all the astronomical medical expenses that are
    beyond his ability to pay will have to be paid from funds raised from friends and
    colleagues like you. To those ends, his wife Elsa has opened an appropriate bank account
    in Seattle, USA. (For details, see below).
    IT CAN BE DONE. IT MUST BE DONE. A Veteran and hero of the Eritrean liberation
    war, like Dr. Nerayo who sacrificed his career and life for the cause of liberation of his
    people cannot be left to face such a cruel fate alone. We will not allow it; we will answer
    the call and make life for Nerayo as comfortable and tolerable as possible and assist Elsa
    in the Herculean task she is facing. We will not leave them alone and forget our duties as
    fellow citizens and friends. We will organize the fund raising efforts systematically calling
    upon volunteers in USA, EUROPE and anywhere with the aim of raising enough money
    to take care of all that Nerayo and his wife need in this difficult time. In his golden years
    when he should have a quiet, comfortable and meaningful old age, he is suffering
    tremendous pain.
    To that end we will come up with suggestions on organizational and related information.
    But each potential donor can take initiative to organize fundraising events as
    circumstances demand, be it done on regional basis (cities, regions etc.) or individually
    informally organized among friends and families. Meanwhile, please note of the details
    of the bank account which has been opened in both names of Nerayo and Elsa, which are
    as follow:
