Love In Action (Care Packages)
Our love in action program has been a big part of our ministry for a very long time.
Growing up wondering where the next meal was coming from was a constant source of worry for me....bumping into people at church hoping they would ask how I was or if I had eaten. That never happened. They always pasted on a Christian smile, patted me on the back and made their escape.
We believe in educating young minds because the hope for a better future lies in that but most of these children go hungry everyday just like I did and most of them will either die from malnutrition or drop out of school early so they can go find something to do just to feed their siblings and themselves...worse yet for the girl child is the danger of older men preying on them offering food and clothes in exchange for their bodies; not much of a choice for a starving child.
I lived this life and I know feeding a child is just as important as educating them.
At our Learning center we provide the children with breakfast and a wholesome lunch knowing for most of them what we provide them with at school is all they ever get. We provide relief for their families too by providing Care packages including items like...rice,flour,sugar,beans,salt,cooking oil,tea leaves,soap and other toiletries. We started this ministry of care packages while still at university with a bunch of our friends . We would hold concerts and raise money to buy essential food items for families in need and to this day we believe in the practical gospel of love in action
