Samaritan's Purse-Guidan Gado
"In Guidan Gado, Niger, a drought and outdated farming methods have caused starvation and an exodus of young men from the village. Through Raise a Village, Samaritan's Purse hopes to change the lives of these people." (Samaritan's Purse)
You may remember that Samaritan's Purse is one of my favorite ministries. Run by Billy Graham's son, Franklin Graham, they do a host of ministry and disaster relief throughout the world. Our family loves chance to pack shoe boxes full of toys and gifts at Christmastime through Operation Christmas Child.
Well, Samaritan's Purse needs our help right now. There's a village in Niger (a country in Africa) that they are raising funds for. This campaign is short, just from July 10th-19th. The goal of this Raise a Village campaign is to help 1,400 villagers by raising $85,000. Samaritan's Purse hopes to " improve[ing] livestock and food production, giving them the means to pay for the food and medicine they need, and expanding access to clean water."
Will you help? You can go here to make a tax-deductible donation of any size. Can't donate? You can pray. You can tweet this. You can spread the word!
