Giving Voice to Kawama Evangelical Church of Zambia

Kawama is a remote township situated at the most end of the city of Ndola. It is one of the oldest settlements in Ndola that was established by retired miners. This community has not been spared by the situation of children being orphaned by HIV/AIDS and as Forgotten Voices, we are proud to be partners with Kawama ECZ's orphan care ministry. Currently the ministry has sent 34 orphans back to school.

Echoes of Mercy, as the local church orphan care ministry is mostly called, has also been supporting the elderly with food supplements and household chores. Am always humbled by the sheer love the local members have for one another and for the community. The poverty, though so evidently around, has not stopped them from their life of joy and readiness to share what they have. Currently a sweet potato garden has been started at the church plot to share the produce and sell the surplus.

They remind me of Christ's words in Matthew 6: 25-31. They have chosen to trust The Lord for their provisions and never to allow anxiety reign. Your support through the ministry of Forgotten Voices has so far been their portion of God's answer for their provisions. As you continue doing so, you are making it possible for most of these children's dreams to be realized.

We need to raise $750 by the beginning of August to keep this project going because we paid most of the expenses already, but still some to go. Give today at to help the Kawama Evangelical Church of Zambia continue to reach out with the love of Christ.

Thanks. Sincerely,
Remmy Hamapande, Program Director - Zambia
