VOH Chongwe is happy to celebrate the wedding of Samuel Mamatu, our Administrative Assistant. Samuel grew up at VOH Kitwe and met Precious when he moved to Chongwe a few years ago to work in the office at the Chongwe Village of Hope. It was a great day as together we shared in Sam’s joy for all that has happened in his life since he moved to VOH Kitwe back in 1999.

This week VOH Mongu received a donation of 1260 boxes, which will provide 300,000 meals, of hand-packed meals from an American Christian non-profit organization. These meals are specially formulated for malnourished children. We will use them to feed the children in our school, Save a Life clinic and children’s homes. We are extremely grateful for this amazing gift.

It was a busy week at VOH Kitwe as students were tested on what they learned during the first school term. In this picture one of the grade 8 classes is writing an end of term test. Students are encouraged to study hard according to their abilities and they are very thankful for the education they are receiving. Providing an education to orphans and vulnerable children is one of the ways that hope is brought back into their lives.

This week at VOH Malawi a Canadian visitor, Alana Hunter, taught our school choir 4 new songs with actions, which the kids sang at the top of their lungs at our weekly chapel. It’s been great to hear the kids singing the new songs as they go about their chores and play at the village!

VOH Kenya is busy with the construction of their new library and administrative office building. It will be a little while before the library is completed with tables, chairs, shelves, and books, but there are plans underway for a literacy project that will provide a variety of books to fill the shelves of the library! The administration offices will provide much needed working space for the Village Director, Administrator, and staff. We are thankful for the friends of VOH Kenya who have made this building possible!

Last week at VOH Burundi we held training sessions for staff and Volunteers where everyone learned more about nutrition and first aid. We are committed to ongoing training that allows us to provide the best possible care offered to our children. During the lessons on nutrition we were introduced to the Moringa tree, which is abundant locally and contains many nutrients and vitamins that build immunity and help to prevent many illnesses!
