Kingdom Impact News ~ July 2022
In this issue of our newsletter, we are pleased to report that the Resurgence Programme in Kingdom Impact South Africa run by Andy, Rose and Joshy has recommenced and are getting much success in effecting life changes for these teenagers.
But at the same time, when money is getting much tighter in the UK, we now find we are unable to support entirely the Self Sustaining Projects we started in Tanzania, Malawi, Mauritania and Kenya as we would wish.
There is now evidence in real terms that global warming is currently affecting Africa.
The monsoons are no longer as predictable as they were and unnatural flooding has happened in Mauritania Malawi, Kenya and Tanzania. Some of our projects in these countries have failed dramatically just as we had hoped that self - sustaining was becoming a reality.
Several of our partners in Malawi and Mauritania are without homes caused by floods and suffering real hardships. We heard this week of elderly people who have lost both their homes and their livelyhoods, still languishing at care centres without support and dying of malnutrition.
The combination of Covid + the War in Ukraine has forced up food, transport and fertiliser prices, making it impossible to replant after harvest (or in many cases total lack of crops after flooding).
We have also faced many medical emergencies among the dependents of those we work with. Medical treatment in the hospitals is now beyond our means. At the end of July one of the orphans we care for - has been readmitted to hospital with a serious heart condition. Another child is undergoing a month's treatment for cancer following a burn wound which was healing well but now needs this treatment.
So for a season we will give higher priority to the provision of medical care and food to those in need and pray that God will provide both for immediate needs and our longer term sustainability projects.
