Happy Holidays!

Dear friends,

What an amazing year it has been for AFCA's children, thanks to YOU!  Because of YOU, thousands of children are thriving and hopeful.  Because of YOU, countless children are healthy and they have returned to school.  Because of YOU, hundreds of children had good food to eat this year.  Because of YOU, hundreds of children have livestock and seeds with which to start small businesses. And because of you, children like Maria not only eat well, but also go to school, dreaming of a future free of poverty. We don't have enough words to thank you for what you've done because it is huge...it is life changing.

Thank you for caring for the little ones we serve and for giving them a brighter future.  You are the ones who allow us to keep working for them, providing them with medicine, medical supplies, clean water, food, school fees and supplies, livestock, seeds, self-reliance and HOPE.

As you make your end of the year giving decisions, please keep us in mind so we can continue helping children in 2015 and beyond.

We wish you the best year ever, full of every blessing and happiness imaginable, knowing you are a hope-giver.  If you'd like to learn even more about what we do or how you can meet some of the children you have helped, please contact me at tweaver@AFCAids.org.  I'd love to chat with you!

On behalf of the children,

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?

Would you like to learn more about our programs?  Please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@afcaids.org to get started.
