Families in the Caribbean and Latin America need your help.
Shorna-Kay lives in a dilapidated house in Jamaica that is sagging downhill. She has no running water or electricity. Gaping holes in the rotting floorboards of their house pose a serious danger to her young children. Her 3-year-old, Daniel, has already fallen through one of the rotten floor planks, leaving a nasty gash in his leg.
In Honduras, Maria and her children squeeze into a flimsy structure, made up of plastic, wood and zinc sheets, which offers little protection from the wind and rain that assault their home. She can only wait for the storms to pass and pray that their rickety house won’t be ripped apart.
No one should live in these conditions. But Shorna-Kay and Maria have no choice. Without steady work, any money they can scrape together is spent on food. There is nothing left for home building or repairs. Through it all, they persevere, strong in their faith that one day someone will look their way.
Your congregation can change lives!
Thanks to a matching gift from a generous benefactor, every gift for housing received by February 28, 2022, will include a dollar-for-dollar food match, up to $500,000. This means that the loving generosity your congregation provides will go even further to help more families!
A sacrificial contribution of any amount will help to make safe shelter a reality and will be matched dollar for dollar with lifesaving food.
an ever-present help in trouble."
(Psalm 46:1, NIV)
