Joan’s Battle with Malaria July 30, 2021
In Baringo, Kenya malaria is all too common. There’s not a family untouched by the disease, and 13-year-old Joan is no exception.
Many of the people Joan knows have suffered from malaria, and in her short life she’s already battled the disease herself multiple times. It’s so common that the health clinic in Joan’s town doesn’t even bother to double check with a test. If someone comes in with malaria symptoms, they get treated for malaria regardless.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been focusing on clean water projects and the difference we can make together. Today, I’m pleased to share that we’ve raised over $36,000 to help make sure kids have access to safe drinking water – and more gifts continue to come in every day.
Unbearable Thirst July 1, 2021
Bridget is 14 years old and has 3 little sisters. Her father abandoned them, but her mother works hard to take care of her family. They live in one small room, which they rent. Bridget is a wonderful help to her mother. She makes the hour-long trip to the open well for the family’s daily supply of water, and often takes care of baby Brenda so that mom can go to work. Her family attends the local church and Bridget loves being a part of the singing, dancing, and drama group there, while her mother serves as an usher.

Before and After: The Difference a Water Filter Makes June 11, 2021
One of life’s simple pleasures is enjoying a cool, refreshing glass of water on a hot summer day. In Kenya, where 13-year-old Miriam lives, there is no shortage of hot days, but the fresh water is much harder to come by. But with the gift of a household water filter, Miriam can also enjoy safe drinking water, any time she wants… and what a difference that makes in her life!
Water is Life June 1, 2021
All of us know that water is life. We cannot live without it, and if we do not drink enough, our bodies are quickly run down and consumed with finding more.
But how often do we forget to acknowledge how desperately we need our dose of Living Water every day, to truly live? If we ignore our thirst for too long, it begins to consume our lives, as we desperately search for something that will satisfy.

There’s No Place Like Home May 3, 2021
Sometimes our sponsored children and their families need more than just food, water, and education. Sometimes their living situation is so dangerous that, without a secure place to live, it is unlikely they will be able to break the cycle of poverty. In these extreme cases, our donors have stepped up and decided to build new homes for these children and their families.
