Great is what the Lord has done to us, He has indeed keep all our candles to continue burning despite some of the short comes. It’s been a great tiring moment more with the East African gifters. Indeed gifting was majorly to upgrade less fortunate areas in Africa. Other countries in the globe had known Africa as a dark continent one factors was that the inhabitant of Africa are black in color. Another thing was that civilization never came to Africa at the first dispensation. These played a major role in the economic stability of the continent of Africa if we leave out few fortunate countries which at the moment I would count to be better off economically.
I have transverse Africa and I have a lot of experience of their socioeconomic status of our continent. I had been to Sierra Leon and physically saw the living standard of the Leones. In fact they fully depends on the palm oil farming which even don’t benefit the majority because they lack adequate resources that would help them to extract the oil from the nuts. They also depend on the foreign investors. Because of that frequent wars and the Ebola attack which also left many children orphans, that nation is economically down.
In the nation of Zambia, I also experience such , in fact Zambia is even more worse because the well to do people lives in the urban areas while the less fortunate stays in the rural areas. Even though they produce minerals like copper but they don’t benefit from them since they go to south African after mining. I also saw great number of orphans’ children whose parent passed away because of HIV AIDS.
Also I had been to the country of Malawi, which also experience the same crisis. The country is poor economically because they have no cash crop that they can export for foreign exchange to boost the country economy. Here the economic favored people lives in town while the rest of the country is left for the poor and less fortunate people .
All these increases a burden in my life to see that as a team we should in one accord see that we reach needy areas of Africa with much giftings to help in at least do something to stabilize the economical standard of even a few people in AFRICA. It’s true that we had even lost so many of our fellow gifters in their campaign for peace in countries like Southern Sudan, we lost David Ochieng and his wife Emma. In fact they were our heroes in southern Sudan and the fruits of their labor people are still celebrating. We also lost Christine and her husband Salva Kir. They left back children whom had been under our care. The late Don Croft knew about them and indeed before he died , he used to stand with us in their support since we should not only love and care for the children when their parents were still alive. We have to extend that care and love to them even after the demise of their parents.
After the departure of Don Croft which also took place in untimely situation, we had face a dark moment since we are forced to carry all the burden ourselves. We are to pay school fees for both the orphans and ours. Giftings also we must do because we don’t want lose our focus is reclaiming some areas of our continent. There was a book I red in high school which states that what proves a man is what a legacy he lives behind, on that context it’s my desire to see that I leave something behind that other will benefit. A big trees that children and the hungry will move around in search of fruits to satisfy their hunger and quench their thirst.
I know there is a global financial draught but the few coins that we may get would assist us in accomplishing the vision. Its only human being that die but visions never die when visionary and competence people works behind you. It’s my desire that all the orphans may not suffer, our friends in Africa and more so in Sierra Leone where we have started a project, Southern Sudan , Malawi and Zambia may go well. I appreciate fellows like Habib, Laurent, and Charles among others who knew more about our ambition. Its true when am alone I cannot manage accomplish all these and thus it’s my appeal for any who would wish to join hand on this vision to contact me.
