"In Guidan Gado, Niger, a drought and outdated farming methods have caused starvation and an exodus of young men from the village.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."

  1. I'm happy to tweet this! Love Samaritans Purse. And after visiting Haiti this year on a mission trip I know firsthand how simple things we take for granted here have a HUGE impact elsewhere.

    1. Thanks Katy! Yes, last year I learned that in Uganda, a box of crayons costs something like a week's income! Kids can't go to school because they can't afford the basic supplies! I am more than happy to buy a box of crayons and stuff it in a shoebox of supplies to be sent!

  2. Fabulous organization. My boys have raised money through Sunday school and youth group for this and we've done the shoe boxes too.

  3. Thanks for posting this! I will tweet it as well!

  4. I love Samaritans Purse. Such a great organization. We always participate in Operation Christmas Child.

    1. OCC is awesome! I actually get to do a guest post about it next month on the SP blog!!

  5. Thank you so much, Tammy, for supporting our effort to help Nigeriens!


Happy to have you here at the Zucchini Summer Blog! :)
