It Is important to show the Love of Christ to communities in need which builds relationship and trust with local community and government. This will often open up new doors. We are currently Working with streets kids on The Kenyan/Uganda border in Busia.
In the past we ran feeding programs for children in Mexico during summer holidays and took part in Operation Christmas Child run by Samaritan’s Purse.. We provided mosquito nets to pregnant women and young children, and bibles and children books and we did several farming projects to help the churches

Malaria is one of the biggest killers in Africa, it currently kills more people in South Sudan then the civil war. It is something that can be prevented through education and mosquito nets.
We usually provide treated mosquito nets for mothers with children younger then 5 years and we treat nets when possible. One net is $20 in East Africa and our focus is to hand them out in Northern Uganda and South Sudan. Our Goal is to hand out 100 through our churches for 2019.
