UPDATE – Your gifts are on their way to 120,000 meals to children in Ethiopia and Swaziland. The first shipment has arrived in Ethiopia and is in customs, due to be released the first week of March. As far as I’m concerned, it can’t get there fast enough -- please continue to pray!
Thank you so much for your compassion – and for acting to provide direct help to these precious children.
In just four days, we received $13,125 toward our February Food Drive. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
The children live with such great need in these countries. These meals will keep thousands of kids alive and participating in Children's HopeChest programs. These programs provide health care, education, Christian discipleship and so much more.
We are considering a similar project next month in Uganda, as we have become aware of similarly critical needs in one of our orphanages. Over 300 children are at a similar risk of losing their source of food and funds for education. I will report back next week on this opportunity, please leave a comment or e-mail me if you'd like more details.
P.S. I invite you to consider connecting with one of the kids we serve through sponsorship. Your monthly support and the gift of a consistent relationship makes such a difference for a child. Our goal is to increase sponsorship by 2000 children in 2009! Click here to become a sponsor today.
