Mwanza: Sand Water Filters

At VOH Mwanza we were excited to have visitors come teach some of our children and staff how to build and use a sand water filter. They learned about the importance of clean drinking water and how to literally make these sand filters from scratch! They will make enough filters for each children’s home and then be able to continue the construction of the water filters as a project to help other people outside of VOH Mwanza.

John wants us to think of the light as a “who”. It is from this light that we experience spiritual life. Read More

Mwanza: New Clinic Project

VOH Mwanza we are excited to be starting work on our Clinic Project! We are renovating a building onsite to turn it into a clinic, which will serve our children who live onsite as well as people from the surrounding community.

Good quality, affordable healthcare is still a very big issue here in Mwanza and so we are very happy to soon serve those from the local community in this way.

We also want to thank the donors who made this possible thanks to their generous giving.
