A major celebration took place on May 16 with a special meal that served over 200, guest speakers, distribution of new uniforms and 35 pairs of new shoes given to children who had no shoes at all.
Over the past six years Living Waters Feeding Center has served approximately 300,000 meals, 330 new uniforms have been made and 65,000 direct care man-hours have been spent caring for our children. Over 500 medical referrals and treatment have been provided to the children.
Our 3500 square foot free standing feeding center provides space for these services. 1 1/2 acres of gardens and fruit trees help supplement the nutritious diet. A medical clinic and guest house have been built.
This is a true testament of Gods hand in this project.
For all of this we say a huge thank you for your support. But, the real question: “is your sacrificial giving really making a difference?” We leave this up to you to decide.
Early in the feeding center project, approximately 75 children lived in child headed homes. Due to the direct impact that the center has had on these children by way of nutritious food, school uniforms, blankets, and medical care, there is not a single child attending Living Waters Feeding Center who is now living in a child headed home. All of the children have been assimilated back into family units with either grandparents, relatives or neighbors! Because the financial burden of caring for these children has been eased by the food, clothing and medical they are receiving at the Living Waters Feeding Center, every child lives in a family structure again.
We were told that “the children who attend Living Waters are the happiest and healthiest children on Rusinga”. For Mary Jo and I the above question has been completely affirmed with a resounding “YES!”.
If you would like to support our feeding center on Rusinga Island, your donation will be designated specifically for food and feeding supplies.
