Why We Fight... For the children of the Volta Region
I am often asked how I ended up in West Africa. There is a back story that many of you know. But the second question is often "Why are you building PFHS?"
I received an email, "Ebenezer and Judith" from Sr. Justine earlier this month. Their heartbreaking story could be the textbook case as to why PFHS must be built.
I have many challenges as I continue to raise the money to build PFHS. But there are two in particular. The first, how do I effectively describe how and why children are dying of starvation to an American audience? Secondly, how do I inspire those same folks to invest in our mission and in-turn to exponentially save children's lives.
Ebenezer and Judith are very similar to several of the children under the care of the Sisters who died in 2016 from the lack of nourishment and enough food. Orphaned and living with whomever will take them in, but not having their basic needs met.
Ebenezer and Judith are the latest to become part of the Pope Francis Outreach Program.
Please pray for Ebenezer and Judith and all of the children waiting on PFHS
