Ruth & Linda

Ruth and Linda are working in a remote village of approximately 4,000 people whom the chief described as the "forgotten people". In God's eyes no one is forgotten. So in November of 2013 work began in a remote area in Burkina Faso.. The focus has been on medical care, clean water, education, sponsorship of orphans/vulnerable children and widows. God's love and mercy is demonstrated through the many programs established in Kimini.

MEDICAL - The first building in the medical clinic project is complete. People in the village who had no medical care available will now receive medical assistance. Click here to support the medical clinic

EMERGENCY MEDICAL - A special fund has been set up to help with unexpected emergency medical care. Click here to give to emergency medical special fund

INFANT NUTRITION - Provides formula for at risk babies. Click here to help with infant nutrition

CHILD SPONSORSHIP - Helps by paying school fees, providing school supplies, personal care items as well as paying for basic medical needs. Special distributions of food and other gifts are held twice a year. Just $35 a month changes the life a child. Click here to sponsor a child

WIDOWS - Widows, often marginalized in this culture, receive monthly donations of food and personal care items. Just $20 a month brings relief to a widow. Click here to sponsor a widow

WATER - two wells have been drilled to date. One is providing safe water and the second failed to do so. We have plans in place to drill four more wells in the next few months, build a water tower and lay pipelines to connect the medical clinic thus providing water. Click here to help drill water wells
