CHRISTIAN AID Water is vital to life. We in the West take it for granted. Christian Aid is helping to bring clean water to those who do not have it. Faith along with her
husband Steven lives in Kenya, where ongoing drought means that nothing grows. Her fields were dirt and dust. Hunger was a reality. Without crops they did not have enough to eat or sell and sending their children to school was an impossibility. Then Christian Aid came along and with Faith’s local community they got together to build a sand dam with your support. The dam gives Faith’s community resilience in times of drought. While the rain still remains irregular, a dam means that when the rains come the community can collect every last drop. Because there is now water in Faith’s community, there is life. Faith said “The sand dam has made me and my family happy, because when it was not there, I was not able to plant anything. Now we can plant vegetables and water our trees. I hope that by the time my children grow up, I will have done a lot of things. I will do my best to educate my children and my children will be what they want to be, when they grow up.” This is just one example, where donations are spent.
Loving Jesus, loving His word, loving people...
