The piggery in Kenya is doing really well. Thanks to an amazing donor, we have a food chopping machine to make food for the pigglets. They also eat the leftovers from the community gardens, making sure nothing is wasted. What a great project this is turning out to be! Restoringhopes Ministry and AFCA working together on yet another project!

A tiled wall with the name of donors, cribs, beds, wheelchairs, IV, and all that moms need to birth their babies in a safe environment.

Mama Juliana is a widow who has been making ropes out of sisal fiber for 3 years in Miwani, Kenya. She was left to raise her 4 grandsons who are 3, 5, 6 and 8 years old What a difficult thing it is to start all over again, as a widowed grandmother! On a good day she is able to make 20 ropes, earning $3. She says that with this money she is able to to have enough food for her grandchildren and herself and to pay for their subsidized school fees. I just love that sisal is making a great impact in her life and want to share this joy with all of you who have helped make this possible.

Who would have thought that making rope could be a life-changer? Restoringhopes Ministry is doing a great managing this AFCA project and lives are being impacted daily.

The clinic in Mombasa, Kenya is going up! At the same time, our first or three promised containers of medical supplies for this clinic arrived. So incredibly exciting! And, so incredibly stressful, as we still need to fundraise a lot of money.

But, this is good, friends. It is so good to help others and to give a hope and future to babies in the Mikindani slum of Mombasa. If you'd like to be part of this endeavor, please consider joining our Bee Mercy campaign and donate either here on Facebook, at www.AFCAids.org/BeeMercy or send a check made out AFCA with a note that it is for the Mercy Hospital to 1520 Greening Lane, Harrisburg, PA 17110.

Thank you for being part of our hive!

Days are tough for so many people around the world (see the infograph below), but in Congo, things are particularly difficult. Congo now ranks number 2 in food insecurity in the world. I ask that you seriously consider if you NEED the stimulus check our government has sent out. If you can do with just a portion of it, would you consider making a donation to AFCA, allowing us to continue our programs? You can make a donation here or at www.AFCAids.org and know that you are saving lives. Thank you!

Papayas ready for harvesting at Restoringhopes Ministry in Miwani, Kenya. I received a note telling me that the children at the orphanage were all smiling looking at how well the #AFCAids trees were doing. Yahoo for perseverance and patience as a load of trees are being harvested for the children and for sale.

It's the little things that add up to make a huge difference. Thanks to each of you who allow us to do what we do.

They arrived at the Sandra Jones Centre gate one day, dirty, tired and hungry and asked one of the staff if this was the home that helped little kids. Naturally, they answered "yes" and invited them in. Through many tears they learned that their Mom, out of sheer desperation, chased them away from home and told them to go to “the home that helps kids”.

It was a hot day and they had walked many kilometers. The had dirty plastic coke bottles filled with water which they had found on the ground and filled with water from puddles on the side of the road.

All three children were very underweight and malnourished. Now they are happy, healthy, children who are back in school and thriving. Soon the oldest little girl will receive treatment for an eye problem she has and once that is done, the staff at SJC will work towards reunifying them with her mother. While the children have been at SJC, their mother has been able to find employment and is slowly getting back on her feet.

Until then, the children will remain at SJC where they are loved, educated and fed, even receiving fresh vegetables daily, thanks to our #AFCAids greenhouses! Those greenhouses not only feed the Phatasane children, but they also feed the 80+ children who live at SJC, plus staff! They also bake their our own bread daily, thanks to the 30 bread pans American Foundation for Children with AIDS send!

Being food secure is not easy feat in a country like Zimbabwe, but SJC is. What a miracle this is!

AFCA is building a maternity ward in the slum of Mikindani in Mombasa, Kenya. Our campaign is called Bee Mercy (Building, Equipping, Extending Mercy) - in honor of AFCA's Executive Director's parents who loved children and babies, dedicating themselves to their care.

Both Enrique and Mercy passed away last year and we are 100% sure that they would have supported the building of the Mercy Maternity Ward. If you'd like to be part of this project, you can make a donation at https://bit.ly/BeeMercy.
