As we prepare for the holiday season, we give thanks for our blessings and celebrate the birth of our Saviour. Born to bring salvation to a world mired in poverty, disease and strife – He is our hope and greatest gift.
The terrible drought in southern Africa has accelerated the abandonment of children in Swaziland. Food prices have skyrocketed, leaving families unable to feed their children. Throughout the country, there is hunger, disease and desperation.
But there is HOPE.
Because of you, Heart for Africa has rescued 38 precious babies so far this year for a total of 143! Your support provided over 1 million meals to hungry children this past year, and more than 2,000 orphaned and vulnerable children received nutritious eggs and food through our network of church partners each week. Nearly 300 men and women are employed at Project Canaan – the recipients of vocational training and employment that has helped them provide for their families. We have delivered food, water and firewood to the elderly, and wept along with our neighbors when loved ones have died of AIDS-related illnesses such as tuberculosis. We have prayed with people who have been robbed, raped or abandoned by their family to die.
HOPE. Feeding the Hungry. Rescuing Orphans. Employment to alleviate Poverty. Providing Education. These are the outcomes you have made possible through Heart for Africa. As we approach the end of 2016, generous friends have committed to match your response to this appeal up to $160,000!
We need $330,000 to end the year strong and stand ready to save even more babies in 2017, continue our efforts to feed the hungry during this drought and offer employment to men and women that will ensure that they can care for their families.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sustaining our work and allowing us to serve Swaziland’s people and our Lord through your faithful generosity.
