We can’t cure Ebola but we can help . . . will you?

“Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people to change
the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead

We’ve just received word from our Anglican mission agency working closely with Anglican Churches in West Africa and it’s not good news . . . the Ebola virus is taking a devastating toll.

You’ll be shocked to know that more than 5000 lives have been lost – and over  8000 people are infected with the deadly disease.

As you can imagine the hardest hit are the rural communities who have little access to healthcare. Please can we count on your urgent support here right away?

Right now we need to help by:

  • Providing food and other essential items for relatives – including orphans – of those who have lost their lives to the virus.
  • Providing healthcare, medical personnel, medicines and protective equipment.
  • Trainings diocesan staff, volunteers and health workers.
  • Raising awareness of the virus and how to prevent infection.

With each passing day the need grows . . . not just for medical supplies – but food and basic essentials too. That’s why your contribution here will be such a welcomed help.

Please won’t you make your donation here right away? We can’t cure the disease but by joining hands we’ll show families that we can help ‘change their world’.

Every gift will help, so please give as generously as you can by clicking here right away.

Thank you and God bless.

REFLECTIONS – BEING AT HOME

One of the greatest stories ever told never actually happened. It was fiction. But we know that fiction may speak truths in the clearest and most convincing [and convicting] manner possible. The story is the parable that Jesus told of THE PRODIGAL SON. [more]


 

A SMALL CHANGE

At our recent Strategic Planning HOPE Africa decided to change the last word in our full name from Health, Opportunity, Partnership, Employment to Empowerment.  This was done to reflect what our work is currently all about.  While we feel that employment is important, we rather empower and equip people with the necessary skill to find employment.
