It's been just over two weeks since we held our Giving Tuesdayfundraiser with GlobalGiving. Again this year we not only focused on our vocational training program for young women,but we also included our food hamper program for the elderly, disabled, and single mothers. I'm so grateful to you for making it so successful. Not only did we raise enough money to support our vocational training program moving forward into 2022, but we also raised enough to keep the food hamper program going throughout the holiday season, tripling the number of hampers we have distributed weekly over the past four weeks.
Imagine you're elderly, handicapped, or a single parent caring for your disabled child, ...with little or no government assistance! That's the predicament the recipients of our food hamper program have lived with for the past 20 months since Covid first arrived in Kenya. Normally they rely on the kindness of neighbors or their adult children. However, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the neighbors are also out of work and not receiving an income. They too are struggling to feed their families daily. In many situations, adult children have had to move back to their rural villages due to business closures. For the past month, we have felt financially comfortable preparing and distributing three times our usual weekly food hampers because of the confidence we have knowing that we have you as a monthly donor.
Please share the word among your friends that this week (December 13th to 17th), GlobalGiving will match all new monthly donations at 200%.
100% of the donation that Springs of Hope Foundation receives will go directly toward our food distribution program.
We have never needed your help more than at the present time.
Thank you so much. Warmest blessings, Jennifer Hughes-Bystrom Founder/CEO Springs of Hope Foundation
* P.S. If you sign up for a new recurring donation from December 13-17th, GlobalGiving will match your first donation at 200% after 4 monthly donations.
