We are privileged to hand out over 150 food parcels every month. This is as a result of the generous contributions of one company and the Christadelphian UK Meal a Day fund who have enabled us to make the food parcel distribution a sustainable monthly project. The parcels are handed out to 50 children at a school, various needy people in an informal settlement in Tembisa, a group of children called the KINOS (Kids In Need Of Support) group, an home of safety, a feeding scheme that provides food for 70 street children.
The purchasing of the food in bulk, making up of the food parcels, and distributing of the parcels has now become a fun, streamlined and well organized project that brings joy to us and the recipients of the parcels. We are thankful to be able to do this rewarding work. It has enabled us to build relationships and some of the people are also now participating in our Bible correspondence course. We include some Bible literature, crosswords etc in the parcels from time to time. It is a humbling experience to see the severe need of some of the people but also how long (two weeks) a parcel can sustain them when we have so much and are hardly ever in need of anything.
We are hoping to and praying for a facility that can function as a small warehouse so that we can take our DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL project to a higher, more effective and bigger level.
With abiding love in Jesus
