This man and his family are very poor. His only income is from cutting wood in the forest and selling it at the market. His very old horse had just died. We wanted to help him but had already spent most our budget in helping others. Surprisingly, good horses are hard to find because people are now using tractors. Across the country we finally located a horse farm. We took the money we had, found others to help, and bought this beautiful horse. The family was thrilled.
The regional mayor has asked us to help students visit the US. We partnered with an organization in Atlanta for their visit. This is a picture of 19 students and their parents at a meeting before they left in October for four weeks. They all had attended our summer camp and had to have an “A” average. The local government paid their airfare.
We put windows in the home of a very poor family in a remote village. We don’t know how they survived the winter. The windows leaked water and air blew right through them. Two had only plastic over the openings during the winter.
We found poor families who had wells but no pumps to get the water. This is part of three families who live together that we provided pumps for and had them installed. Because of what we were doing, the workman lowered the price so we could help other families.
