Update: Kuwinda Slum Thriving After Tragic Fire

“Words can not express Joel’s and my gratitude to all that donated to helping relocated more than 30 victims of the Kuwinda fire from last month. It was emotional gathering everyone together on Sunday night and truly seeing how many lives were touched. I want to let each of you know that every USD, AUD, Euro, Pound, Shilling, etc. that was donated managed to provide so many families and individuals with a new home (rent paid for 3 months), new beds, mattresses, sheets, a gas cooker, a starter couple of grocery bags, and more. More than the material goods, it gave these beautiful people a chance at a new start and hope. The generosity shown around the world has touched my heart in an inexplicable way. ”
