Our rainy season has been strong and our program to help families get stronger with better agriculture has been in full swing. We work with a German organization, Whelthungerhilfe, that has been a huge contributor towards the agricultural part of our program. We are helping over 300 families who are given seeds and gardening tools […]
These are the shots of our new recreation/study building. It is almost completed with only the benches around the outside that will double as lockers for kid’s things to be finished. We hope that soon we will have a grand opening and blessing of our building. We will keep all informed.
The rescue home recreation building is coming along beautifully. The children took me on a tour to see what was being done. I love this children so much!
We are saddened to share that on the morning of the 21st of January 2013 our young man Patrick Magume has died. He is the boy we wrote about with the sad face and later with a smile. We have been working so hard to save him. We gave him anything he wanted to eat […]

The recreation/study building is coming along. These photos do not look like much but is the most important part of the construction. The collumns are what will hold the roof up, and the wires coming from them fit between the fitted bricks. Soon things will be going a lot faster. Keep tuned!
Let the building of the recreation/study house begin! We are now making our own bricks. To start, a deep hole is dug into the ground in order to get to the best soil. The dirt is then piled and sieved to remove the rocks. Next, it is mixed with cement and water and put into […]
There is already a smile. It means a lot to a child to know someone cares about them. This is the boy with the sad face in the last post. His name is Patrick and he is in serious shape. We pray that he will get stronger soon and at least now he knows that […]
I truly believe that these two faces really tell the story of why we have the Manna Rescue Home. The very sad, scared and sick boy in this photo is 13 years of age and has been made to feel worthless and unwanted. His disease has progressed and make him very sick and weak and […]
