The Twelfth Day of Christmas is January 6. TODAY’s fundraising goal is: $3,468, which, according to the PNC Bank, this is the current value of 12 Drummers Drumming.

Here’s a crazy idea! Instead of paying for drummers, how about your help pay a portion of one of 12 doctors? Indeed, $10, $20 or any amount will be much appreciated as we try to reach our goal of $3,468 for today so that good medical care can be provided for babies, children, moms, dads, and grandparents in our programs. Will you start out 2024 with a bang and help us with a donation of any size?

There is still time to give an amazing gift this holiday season. Take a look at these life-changing gifts that give education, food, training, medication, and HOPE. These gifts grant opportunities for children to grow up and thrive and also empower women to succeed.

Have you or your family ever sponsored a pregnant goat for another family to grow their flock, educate and feed their children and elevate them out of poverty forever? Have you ever paid school fees so a child can get an education? How about paying to train a woman in tailoring?

We have gifts available that will change lives. Check them out!

🐝Bee the G.O.A.T. & give sustainably this season - I know that many of us don't NEED anything. Really...we have electricity, water, food, transportation, insurance, and so much more. We have choices. We have opportunities.

This season, why not be the G.O.A.T (Greatest of All Time) and share a little of what we have with the children served by ? I have the massive goal of raising $75k by the end of the year, and while it seems impossible, I trust that it can happen. Will you please help take us closer to that goal?

Check it out here: https://bit.ly/47sUFba and be a G.O.A.T today.

Thank you for caring for the little ones.

Postpartum and Neonatal care is crucial for both mother and baby. Especially in the developing world, infant mortality is much too common, but with proper health care and supplies, children have a much greater chance of growing up. The ‘Bee Mercy’ hospital in Mombasa, Kenya provides essential neonatal services for women and babies in the community.
A special thanks for all those who have supported AFCA and in turn this hospital. You have literally helped to save children’s lives!

To continue our work we need YOU, we are an ngo with a limited staff and funding, we need your donations to continue running and serving children and parents across Africa.

Go to our website afcaids.org and make a donation today to make a difference.

‘Bee Mercy’, built and funded by AFCA, with its maternity and baby ward, works to help the community in many ways. Pictured here is a newborn checkup day for all the women in the community who have given birth. The babies are given their first injections, are weighed and measured, given medication as necessary, and given a full body check-up. The mothers are given a baby layette kit, with everything that a newborn would need.

Thanks to all donors who have been part of this! From scales to beds to layette and birthing kits, to 95% of all the furnishings in the hospital - they came from AFCA's warehouse in PA and from amazing donors. Thank you!

What began with two failing children, a hopeful woman, and a mud church in the slums, is now a bustling joy-filled school, aptly named ‘The Gift School’. Here, children who previously had to walk miles through the muddy maze of slum roads just to arrive at an overpacked schoolroom with one textbook per 55 children, are now able to learn!

Hats off to the incredible people who made this dream a reality, who brought the gift of knowledge to so many young ears! And thanks for our incredible donors for funding the UMFEEMA Library, from where all children can access the books they need to learn and grow.
