West Africa Food Crisis - Donate now

Easter is a time of rebirth and salvation from darkness.  However, many people are suffering and need your help.  In West Africa, severe drought is affecting thousands of lives in at least six countries, and in Niger alone, 40,000 children suffer from malnourishment and likely death.

I know we’re all going through hard times right now with the economy, but if you can donate even the same amount that you spent for a chocolate Easter bunny, it would make a huge difference.

“They will never again be hungry or thirsty;
they will never be scorched by the heat of the sun.
 For the Lamb on the throne
will be their Shepherd.
He will lead them to springs of life-giving water.
And God will wipe every tear from their eyes.”

~ Revelation 7:16-17 (NLT)
