I love it when kids look at the problems of the world and ask, “Why doesn’t someone do something about that?” and then they do! Gabriel Hardin learned of the importance of mosquito nets in the prevention of Malaria and decided to collect money to buy nets. Gabriel began contacting his friends and family and on Monday presented me an envelope containing $100. That is enough to buy 10 nets and will protect at least 10 children. In many cases one net will protect more than 10 because multiple children can sleep under one net.
There is a great lesson in Gabriel’s story. It is simply this. None of us can do everything, but all of us can do something to save lives and alleviate suffering.
Thanks Gabriel for being Jesus to the children of Dono-Manga, Chad.
