Message from Annika Schmidt, Gaby Franke, Hannes Behringer and Peter Breunig:
"We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all of you. To see your compassion and your willingness to support the families of Anas Ibrahim and Saleh Abdullahi is heartwarming. We are overwhelmed by the large number of donors and the respectable sum of money collected, not only from the archaeological community but also from family, friends and colleagues. We will arrange the delivery of the money to the families in the next months. Before our departure, we already provided instant financial support to both families on behalf of the Nok project but your donations will help to support the families and ensure the education of the children.
We also sincerely thank the organizers Akinwumi Ogundiran, Zacharys Gundu and Willeke Wendrich for the idea and realization of the crowdfunding.
Annika, Gaby, Hannes & Peter"
