Bundles for Babies Christmas Campaign
During a zoom meeting last week our Kenyan Director Edward shared with us about the plight of the young girls who have become pregnant during the country’s lockdown. Many girls have also been forced into child marriages and others are victims of FGM (Female Genital Mutilation). Our partners on the ground are working hard to help these young girls complete their education and break out of the poverty cycle. We have an ongoing need for baby items. Because of the closure of international borders, we are unable to visit and take our usual suitcases full of clothing and essential items. However, we can send funds to purchase what is needed from local businesses. Please consider making a tax deductible donation which will be used to supply some of the ongoing needs for the girls and their babies.
