Dear First Lady Michelle Barrack

Are you aware there are over 300,000 children displaced in Somalia ? In Syria there are 800,000 children living in great danger of being killed. Recently death squads charged the streets of Syria, this time specifically aiming to kill children (see UN reports 2013).

Are you aware of the danger to life for the children of Syria, 100,000s of children facing years of war, they need to be evacuated 800,000 children who are victims of human rights abuses and war. We are committing a crime leaving these children in danger, we should move them to an area/country of peace together with mothers and school teachers.

Maybe your two beautiful daughters and their friends can come up with a plan to help.
They will definitely be saving childrens lives by taking some time and donating this period
to help children that are innocent victims of war and violence.

150,000 temporary homes are needed in Somalia to house 700,000 displaced people.

I will remain yours faithfully

Dear Sutan Hassanal Bolqiah

How quickly they can provide 150,000 units is our primary question then price for the whole contract.

We will require about 150,000 units in a variety of sizes. Be good if manufacturer produced a colour range of pink yellow mid blue and green, would make units more pleasing and jolly up the refugee camp-towns.
Colours mildly influence peoples emotions so colour tents are better. In the deep sea diving buiness the compession cambers are now fitted ot with light saturation apparatus, the operators discovered by colour saturating divers for three hours their emotions-temperament can be made more focused and calmer just usin different shades of colour lighting they saturate the divers with a variety of colours.

These are the cheaper more common crisis housing units available to export to Somalia.

Please agree Brunei will advance funds for this exercise to be actioned forthwith and endorsed by President of Somalia. It will save lives of many children.
We will bill NATO for the expense the funding can be recovered, it is te duty of the UN and NATO to protect the human rights of adults and children at the expense of the UN and NATO where necessary. My cousin Secretary General of NATO Anders Fog Rasmussen will ensure the money is refunded in due course.

Please write to Sultan Hassanal Bolqiah and urge him to release US$9000 million to fund educate and save 1.1 million childrens lives in Somalia and Syria. This is the decision Prophet Mahammad would conclude is God's will and desire.

1.1 million children will survive with help from a servant/caretaker of Prophet Mahammad and God known as Sultan Hassanal Bolqiah of Brunei.

I will remain yours faithfully
