Our new website it officially up and running! Please take a minute to check it out, www.reedsofhope.org.
We are so very excited to finally have a more streamlined sponsorship process encorporated all into one place. We also are now able to do more targeted fundraising for foundational initiatives and projects that are essential to our future success in doing family reunification, family support and alternative care. It's a bit daunting but I feel more excited than anything else because you have all come alongside our work in eastern DRC with vulnerable children and their families.
I wanted to highlight a very big need we have right now, and that is for the school kids. We are looking for 77 sponsors for the school children. We pay for their school fees as well as uniforms and notebooks. Tied directly to this is raising the funds for a motorcycle (to check on the children, their progress, and overall well being) because most of the children live in different villages and ares than the orphanage we support.
I will be sharing more in the days ahead about the projects we will be working on and the goals we have as we work with the congolese families and their children in the area we serve.
