BENEFITING: INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN SERVICES
EVENT DATE: Aug 11, 2013
August 11 through August 25, 2013, the volunteer listed below will participate in an international outreach with other missionaries, physicians, nurses, educators, and ministers. This outreach is a joint project between the International Missions Department of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc. (PAW), and International Humanitarian Services (IHS). IHS is a 501 (C) (3) nonprofit.
This year the team will travel to Ghana West Africa to help with a building project, provide empowerment training, free health screening, visit homes to offer encouragement, feed poor children, and minister to those seeking God. Please consider a donation of $100 or more to support this effort. All donations are appreciated. Your donation will be used to support missionary expenses. The total cost being raised by the volunteer below is $3,300.
The Female Empowerment Project provides skill building training to help poor women start or expand a small business. This opportunity strengthens them and provides skills to help them earn incomes to pay their children's educational expenses and improve nutrition for poor children and the elderly. The Health Screening Project will provide free healthcare and medicine for poor children and their families. In Ghana, there are 68,000 people for every one physician. More than one million children are too poor to attend school or see a doctor. The average annual income in Ghana is approximately $3,000, a mere fraction of the cost of living.
Jesus said, when we feed the hungry, clothe the naked and provide shelter for the homeless, we have done a work unto righteousness that renders an even greater reward (Matthew 25:31-46).
The deadline for all donations is July 21, 2013. Please make your check or money order payable to IHS/Ghana Outreach 2013. All donations are tax deductible. An official acknowledgement of your contribution will be provided for tax purposes.
Your gift of love can make the difference in the lives of others.
