A Photo is Worth 1,000 Words

What is it they say about a photo being worth 1,000 words?  I'm hoping that is the case today as I report to you about our need for a truck. As you can see, our greenhouse project in Mombasa is flourishing!  Look at all those delicious vegetables!

Now imagine using a motorcycle or rental truck to get the vegetables to market.  We have been renting a truck for only three months at a time, still hoping for the funds to purchase our own truck.  Sadly, it's been a slow fundraising process and the need is great.

We continue to write grants and search for additional ways to raise the money we need to purchase a truck.  We are so determined to meet this need!  Do you know a sponsor who might be interested in taking on this project?  A corporate sponsor or foundation?

Eliah is an 86 year old grandmother caring for 10 year old Thandweyinkosi and 3 year old Nkosilindile. This small family has benefited from our livestock program. Eliah shares her words of appreciation ...


"I am comforted by this support I am getting form the people who are not my blood relatives. Their acts are healing the wounds that I and my grandchildren have been nursing for so long. They are now part of our family and their support has given us hope for the future. We received three goats from this extended family of ours in distant lands. Presently, we have six goats and one of them is pregnant. We are getting milk daily from the goats. We enjoy the milk and my three year old grandchild even drinks it fresh just after milking."


This story of hope and appreciation is made possible because of friends like you. Your donation to our livestock project for orphan family in Zimbabwe makes you part of Eliah's "extended family in distand lands". As you share the holidays with friends and family during this joyous season, take a moment to remember Eliah and her grandchildren. No matter how far away they may seem, you have made a difference for the future.
