Almost 1,000 Children Need Our Help

By Theresa Reus, Project Promotion Chairman

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the 2023 national WMA project. We were able to raise $45,380 to help Daniel Springs buy a generator to keep the camp running in all weather.

We had three worthy nominations for our project this year, and the Jeevan Prakash School in Gulbarga India was chosen as our 2024 national project. The school is in great need of renovations, including:

• Almost 1,000 students and 40 staff members share just 2 toilets.

• They have no source for clean drinking water.

• There are some walls in the school that need to be reinforced.

• The youngest children meet in the lower levels of the school with very little ventilation.

• There are plans to adjust the roof lines to draw the hot air out of the building with the help of fans added to classrooms.

In addition to improvements to the building, the desks and furniture are also in need of updating. I hope we can all work together to raise money for this worthy cause.

Last year was a great success for our national camp. This year we can share the love of Jesus and help children across the world with a better, safer school facility. The goal has been set high — $75,000! Anything you can do to help would be appreciated. Please send contributions to Janet Widger, P.O. Box 23, Salem, Mo. 65560. Let’s work hard and see what the Lord can do with our efforts!
