As we head into the western holiday rush and people start to think about Giving Tuesday and year-end giving generally, we wanted to highlight two options:
KIBUYE FEEDING PROGRAM
Once again this year, we are seeking donors to support our 2-part hospital feeding program. Nothing is more foundational to health than food, and nowhere is more nutritionally-needy than Burundi. We discovered early on that healthcare without addressing malnutrition doesn't work, and the introduction of our feeding program several years ago has been revolutionary for taking care of the sick.
The program supports both 2 meals a day for all patients and their caregivers, as well as nutritional supplementation for malnourished children in our community at a twice-weekly outpatient program.
When $8 can feed a hospitalized patient for a month, and $350 can feed hundreds of children (click here!) during a twice-weekly multigrain distribution, there are not many ways that your dollars can go farther. (and click here to see another video)
CHRIST SCHOOL BUNDIBUGYO
We also wanted to highlight the opportunity to support our sister Serge team in Uganda. If you're interested in quality, long-term investment in Christian education, then you should consider giving to Christ School Bundibugyo (click here!). Over decades of investment, the community in this forgotten corner of Uganda, in partnership with our agency Serge, has created an solid institution that is graduating transformed and transformative students.
Added bonus! There is a matching gift until Giving Tuesday, so double your gift. (and don't worry, the video has subtitles to help under the thick American accents)
