Imagine you’re elderly, handicapped, or a single parent caring for your disabled child…with no government assistance! That’s the predicament the recipients of our food hamper and face mask program live with. Normally they rely on the kindness of neighbors. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the neighbors are all out of work and not receiving an income. They too are struggling to feed their families daily.It’s been a month since I held my Facebook Giving Tuesday fundraiser, which was targeted specifically toward our food hamper program. I’m so grateful to everyone for making it so successful. We raised enough money to keep the program going for another 5 weeks. We have never needed your help more than at the present time. Thank you so much. Warmest blessings, Jennifer Hughes-Bystrom Founder/CEO Springs of Hope Foundation
They say that when it rains, it pours, and calamity comes as its brother. The dreaded coronavirus finally found its way into Kenya on the 13th of March.Today we make reference to the bible quote from the book of 2 Corinthians 9:6-8 which says “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work”. The teaching has always motivated the Springs of Hope Foundation to give back to the needy in our communities especially in these trying times.
