Thank you for making our work possible!
Friends, we are grateful for the services you make possible with your giving, especially now, when it matters the most!
With your continued help, we can ensure that everyone has food during this coronavirus epidemic. Before the epidemic our home-bound patients were improving remarkably and had 0 re-hospitalization cases in two years. Now, we are working even harder to ensure that this epidemic does not undo our 3 year achievements. As you know, our most vulnerable sub-populations (HIV/AIDS patients, those with TB, multiple chronic diseases, the malnourished elderly and children) face greater barriers to safe, nutritious and consistent access to food during this crisis.
To successfully continue our feeding program, we are growing our own food on 7 acres of land, and have the opportunity to lease another 20 acres. Its April and the rains are here. To support our patients now and in the near future, we need your help to keep these farms planted so our food chain is not disrupted during this difficult time.
We also already have a growing number of people in need of food, and we need to purchase some grain from the market now while supplies last and transportation is relatively allowed. With your help, we can do more to ensure a bumper harvest, and keep our food distribution pantry open.
We are also swiftly working to address the COVID-19 new challenges of isolation, panic, fear, and frustration.
Currently we have 19 callers providing our patients, their families and community members with trusted information and support to help everyone’s mental health and well-being during this pandemic. In addition to terminal and or other chronic illnesses, our already vulnerable patients are extremely stressed, worried, anxious and fearful about COVID-19. The isolation of course is making it that much harder for our volunteers to physically continue the household visits.
You can help by donating airtime minutes. This allows our phones to stay activated and loaded with minutes to make and take calls!
