VOH Maramvya (Burundi) Update:
At VOH Maramvya, we recently distributed Hope Packs to our children and their families. These Hope Packs included rice, beans, corn flour, palm oil, and salt. It was a joy to see the thankfulness and excitement of the parents and their children. Most families in our area are overwhelmed by a lack of resources, especially during these challenging times. We would like to give a special thanks to each person who helped make this Hope Pack distribution possible!

VOH Mongu (Zambia) Update: Health Assessments
We had a fantastic week here at VOH Mongu; our kids received their general health assessments.

They asked about bothersome symptoms and treated any infections. The kids were thrilled to be receiving health care treatment! We believe every child has the right to good health care, and it was a huge blessing to have Sam with us in Mongu to assist with our school’s health program. Thank you, Dr. Sam, Dr. Kwan yin, and VOH staff for making a massive difference in the children’s lives!
