Thanks to your prompt and generous response, the sisters have distributed 1000 masks for virus protection and the funds are about to arrive for the chicken incubator. The funds have come in over the course of three months and went directly to the sisters of Holy Family Carmel monastery to make masks. 

In May, we were able to fund one sewing machine and had the good luck of the vendor giving us two for the price of one machine when he heard the cause. The sisters have made over 1000 masks, including 300 for the local hospital with the balance for nearby residents and participants of biochar training sessions.

The majority of the funds were received this week and we sent off the funds for the incubator. The balance has been spent on supplies for the masks and distributed at our biochar training sessions that we were allowed to hold, implementing COVID precautions such as masks, hand washing stations, and social distance. The eggs from the healthy chickens being fed with biochar in their feed will no longer need to be carried to a friend’s incubator and the local children will get nutritional meals.

These are gifts that keep on giving.  Thank you for your investment in this great project - we have protected many lives with the masks, and the incubator will help increase food supply for the many children in the surrounding villages.
