The recent outbreak of COVID-19 has now reached West Africa, resulting in schools and gathering places to be closed and orphanages put into lockdown. We still need to feed the 358 children on our feeding program, but our resources are now stressed due to having to cancel numerous fundraising gatherings and speaking engagements in the USA. If not fed, these children are at risk of being trafficked.
Would you consider an emergency gift of $70 to feed one child for two months?
Hawa is an orphaned child who was recently intercepted from being sold into slavery by her grandmother who could not feed her. We immediately put her on our school and feeding program, and are helping her grandmother through our micro-finance program in order to feed her other grandchildren as well.
Hawa, and the many other children we protect from being abused or trafficked, will suffer if we do not feed them. Or worse, they will be sold, if taken off our program prematurely. We are trusting that we will be able to continue this life-saving work with your help.
How You Can Help
Your action is needed now. Please donate so that we can keep the children on our programs supplied with food and sanitation while staying safe and healthy during this international crisis.
