Palma Soriano, Cuba

 

Jorge & Sandra are our Missionary Reps from Palma Soriano and they have distributed goods and food to those who are most vulnerable within their community. These families included those with young children and/or elders. In these bags are eggs, cooking oil, rice and meat.

People in their community were overly thrilled and grateful. Not only does this feed their families but also gives them encouragement and hope!

“The situation with food is very, very difficult. The stores are running out of food. When some food arrives, the line is very long and they only sell one item per person. People here are starving. We need help.”

Nairobi, Kenya

 

Kenya is currently facing a tremendously difficult time. People are becoming desperate as there has become a shortage of food. As a result of this desperation, there has been chaos at food distribution centers which show no social distancing whatsoever. There has also been a problem with locust destroying all the crops, leaving farmers helpless and families without income or food. Now there is also flooding… Kenyans need our help!

Puerto Maldonado, Peru

 

Through this crisis, it is evident that God is still doing his work! Through our Missionary Reps from Puerto Maldonado, Peru, Scott & Tracy Blackburn have been giving food packages to those in need within the community. We had a Happy Hour with Scott & Tracy on April 22 and they are thankfully doing okay as a family during this time.

These bags contain: 1kg of rice, 1kg lintels, 1 package of spaghetti, 1 can of tuna, 1 package of tomato sauce, 1 roll of tp, and a gospel tract. The cost of one bag is $6 CDN!

Iquitos, Peru

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Iquitos is one of many places in the world that has been hit drastically by the Corona Virus. Prices for food have increased and access to food is lacking due to limited transportation. Although they have a strict curfew that they need to follow every day, Rodolfo & Saraid make sure that they still reach out to families during the day when they are allowed out! Here are some pictures of them using the funds YOU generously provided. During this time you are making an impact by providing food to families who are most vulnerable in the slums of Iquitos. You are appreciated!

 

“Iquitos has around 500 000 people and there are only about 30 ventilators… our hospital has collapsed. There is not enough medical supplies and medicine to treat Covid. It’s becoming chaotic… as a family we are fine trying to be very careful to not get infected, however, we are worried about our city as people need to go out every day to buy food. We are praying.”

Nebaj, Guatemala

 

Due to this pandemic, Nebaj is facing a challenging time. The current Hospital is having a difficult time supporting all workers at the Hospital and need financial assistance. Salary for the workers is crucial so that the Hospital can stay open and running. Nebaj as a city is also facing challenges as it has become difficult for people to put food on the table due to no sources of income. With this said, most people in Nebaj earn money by selling food or items at the market and due to COVID19, they are closed.
