At the evening service last night here at the ECC Annual Meeting the speaker spoke of how we must respond to the needs in the Congo. The Covenant has launched a project called Congo Kids powered by World Vision. Hoping to make an impact on the lives of kids in the area of the Congo known as the Nord Ubangi – the area I used to live in.
The needs of this extremely poor country are huge. This could make an impact. They are hoping to have water points in Gemena within 500 M of every home. No more walking all the way to Bokonzo to get drinking water for Pascaline, who did this for Willadeen and myself while we stayed there.
The Canada Covenant is launching its own part of this project. This will happen in October so watch for it and think seriously about sponsoring a child from this project through World Vision. The money you give for support will go to development of the whole community in which the child lives.
