140km of Firebreaks Built to Stop Wildfires

All of us at Creating Hope International (CHI) would like to thank you for your support of our project to create 300km of firebreaks for the Gallmann Africa Conservancy.  Because of your support, our friends at the conservancy were able to build about 140 Km of firebreaks and prevent disastrous wildfires from striking the preserve. After their valiant 50 year-old Caterpillar D6 broke down, they were left to struggle putting out fires ignited outside the conservancy that were brought in by the wind. Armed with wet blankets, sheets, sacks, and anything else they could get their hands on, they were able to keep the fires at bay with the help of their selfless staff, retirees, and their neighbors.  Thankfully, the firebreaks did their job and damage was mitigated. They continue to build firebreaks to prevent wildfires from destroying one of the largest wildlife preserves in Africa. With your support, we can help them make this a reality. Thank you so much!
