Emergency Relief

Relief for the community's survival during and after natural disasters, such as the flood in Jack Mwmanapapa in 2014, and the catastrophic drought of 2019 which resulted in the community's loss of all water access for months. Currently, our focus is on alleviating the situation caused by the world health crisis.

Aid for Dependents

As the children of the Mama Bakhita Cheshire School grow up, they usually still need a lot of help. But inevitably, there comes a time when their aging relatives can no longer care for them. See last month's newsletter about Felistus N'Cube.
