From the Salem International Site:

Salem Uganda is now urgently seeking funds to maintain its services throughout 2008.

In 2007, Salem Uganda, with the help of donations and sponsorship from friends, supported over 80 children both in the Children and Babies Home and though education and vocational training support. Other children and families were assisted with food and other basic requirements on account of their extreme poverty.

We are grateful for all the ongoing support received from sponsors and donors that is enabling these young people to achieve their goal of independence and the means by which to sustain themselves and their families. But the existing level of sponsorships and donations does not cover all these needs.

Since the founding of Salem Brotherhood Uganda Ltd by Gottfried Mueller in 1981 in the eastern District of Mbale, many hundreds of orphaned, abused and vulnerable children have benefited from care and a safe refuge in the Salem village. The majority of these have been resettled back to their villages of origin. Some, including the disabled, continue to need loving care and support. Children and babies continue to be received into the care of Salem.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
