HEADING HOME

It is always amazing to me, to see what $ 200  can do for the people in the Buduburam Refugee Camp in Ghana!! With this little amount, Provision of Hope can transport a Mother back to Liberia.  For $130 we can take a child home.  Liberia is calling all refugees to come back home.  Today there is PEACE. Today there is HOPE.  Today there is OPPORTUNITY.

 “IT IS TIME TO COME HOME!!”  Of course, many would love to go home if they had the funds.  These are the next 9 people to get this privilege!!  The next bus leaves  in 2 weeks.

 Mother Mary with her small children, Laura, Mike + Baby.  Miracle Tetteh has grown up on this camp.

Lovetta Kaydea has spent many years waiting to go home.  Patience Jah with Grace & Peter….waiting.  Lovetta has served on our Single Mothers Empowerment Program for many years.  She is very excited to get home and reunite with her young daughter Angel, who is already in Liberia, with relatives.

Buduburam Camp is not a place for any human being.  Here you will find, open sewers, rats, and disease carrying flies on food. These flies  just came from the open sewers.  There is  no “free” safe water to drink.  Everyone must buy their water.  How do you buy clean water, with no money?  Even for a bath, you need to buy water.  The conditions here are deplorable!  Oh yes!!  These are good photos.  I have visited the camp many times.  You and I would get sick if we were called to live here.  That is why many die.  It makes me sick to think that these need not die. They die from preventable diseases.  

Lovetta is outside on the yard cleaning up garbage.  You see plastic bags everywhere on this camp. These are “flying toilets”  You can only use a proper toilet, if you pay the fees.  Instead they use plastic bags, then fling them outside.  One of my Liberian daughters who we helped home to Liberia, said it this way, ” Buduburam Refugee Camp was a LIVING HELL”

We can do a lot for these people, with so VERY LITTLE!!  Thank you to the two people who already donated towards this group going home.   We have most of this group covered, just a few hundred dollars left.

HE WHO IS KIND TO THE POOR LENDS TO THE LORD, AND HE WILL REWARD HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE.  Proverbs 19:17  

I am one who has “already” reaped the benefits of giving to the poor!  God really “is” true to His word.
