KENYA. A partner ministry who distributes our food in Kenya brought about more than relief to hunger. The Pokot and Turkana communities once raided each other, stealing cows and goats, sometimes resorting to killing for animals. A long-needed bridge brought peace between the two warring communities as they came to receive food from a common point.
ZAMBIA. Beatrice Muleya was widowed in 1999. Four of Beatrice’s 12 children have died since. Beatrice’s small two-room house accommodates 17 grandchildren of various ages. One room serves as both kitchen and bedroom for the grandchildren. Beatrice used to depend on well-wishers to help feed her large family. Because of her health challenges, generating income proved impossible. With the soup mix given to her, Beatrice’s family is able to feast on two meals a day.
UGANDA. Peter’s dream is to become a doctor, but his dream seemed to fall to pieces when his parents died. At 11 years of age, Peter was forced to work collecting water for people. The money he was given was handed off to his grandmother to buy food. Despite this arrangement, Peter was always hungry and had no one to look out for him as he worked. He resorted to sleeping in bushes and eating from garbage dumps. He was eventually noticed by Ruth Nakamya, a caregiver from a Gleanings’ partner,Hope for New Life. Now Peter is a happy, healthy boy eating three meals a day. Peter said, “Before I came to this Kinship Center, I did not know who Jesus was, but I met Him here.”
