Humanitarian Commission In Africa

€1,016 of €7,000 goal

Raised by 17 people in 35 months
Hello,

Since the year 2000 when I first landed in South Africa that I grew to love the place and its people.

I've been for these many years involved in missionary/humanitarian work among the needy of both where I stay in South Africa, Barberton and Mozambique.

Sending containers from Portugal with humanitarian goods, doing the distribution and teaching.

I have been involved with a congregation of about 80 people for the past 5 years. Met them when the gathering place was just a shack made of wood with a corrugated iron roof built on the bare ground.

Thanks to good friends, after a few years of campaign and work on the field, on the 6th of August last we were able to celebrate the completion of a 200 square meters community building.

Now we need to continue with the details like plaster the inside and outside, pave the outside ground, build a wall, etc., plus equip this church/community center building with pews, sound system, musical instruments...

Right now I'm 64 years old and 4 years ago I had an accident where I broke my right leg and a year after the left knee caved in. Not so fit for manual labour anymore but still very much active in the desire of continuing with this project, now mainly through networking, hence the reason for this approach.

Before we returned to Portugal we went to say good bye to our dear friends and humanitarian colleagues, pastor Jabu and his wife, at the Kingdom Life Worship Community Centre/New Hope Pre-School. Together with the farewell visit we left some inspirational and educational literature/books from our TFI ministry for the adults and the young children, to assist in their spiritual and scholastic preparation. We hope to see them again in a few months, after I recuperate fully from the hip operation. Not as bouncy as I used to be.

We just got this email from a sponsor;
"We could grant a maximum of 2,000 euros. We realize, however, that the 2,000 euros we could send you would not be enough to complete the project. Before we approve a grant, the general policy is that we need to know that there is enough landing gear for funding from other sources (in addition to what we can send) to be able to see the project through to completion. This approach helps avoid the grant funds either sitting for a long time or having to be returned, etc. So, for those reasons, and because our grant funds are quite tight, we are not able to issue a grant for your project at this time. However, we will hold 2,000 euros and earmark them for your project, to be sent when you’ve been able to raise the rest of the funds necessary to complete the project. We will hold these funds for a maximum of one year, until February 2020."
So, please reach your heart and pockets right now and donate!! God bless!!!

We have been silent because we have been busy. Now that the Community Center is built and operational we are in the process of submitting an application to the Barberton Municipality for a permit to also function as a pre-school. We have the children, we have the space, we still need to fence the property. It's one of the requirements in order to get the permission. Please help us get this step out of the way. It would be such a marvelous Christmas gift to this dear community. God bless!!
