We have just received this urgent message from Pierre Rimorbe, Evangelist in Dono-Manga, Chad.
Pierre continues, “The rainy season has brought a sharp increase in the cases of Malaria, especially among the children in Dono-Manga. At the moment our Jordan Health Center is overwhelmed dealing with cases of Malaria day and night. There is a great need for treated mosquito nets which has proved helpful in the prevention and reduction of cases in the past.”
In our last update, we challenged you to be a ripple. We asked for you to help make a difference of life and hope for the people of Dono-Manga.
This situation of Malaria-caused deaths still escalates and now the situation is dire for the children and pregnant women of Dono-Manga, Chad.
Now we beg you to help us save lives.
The treated mosquito nets we are seeking are only $10 each. We need to make an emergency wire transfer on August 16th. We are
there not just to teach them life sustaining skills and spread the love of our Father, but we are there to save lives and give them a chance.
$10 to potentially save a life seems like a small price to pay for us. Let’s respond to this emergency call from Pierre Rimorbe to save these children with an answer that says, “your children matter!”
100% of your donations goes directly towards the purchase of these life saving treated mosquito nets. We need to hear from you as soon as possible! Send you donations to: Hope Springs International, 118 Wessington Place, Hendersonville, TN 37075 or donate online at our website Hope Springs International and look for the PayPal Donation Button
