We are so thankful for our relationship with Hands at Work and the privilege to participate in the amazing work that they are doing. Commons Church is invested in a long term relationship with the community of Kalende Zambia providing resources to community leaders as they care for orphans and vulnerable children. We have a team travelling to work alongside and learn from those leaders in July 2016.

Hands at Work has provided us with a quarterly update on what has been happening in this community. Read it at the link below and consider how you can support. 

 

Drought

At the end of 2015/early 2016, Sub-Saharan Africa experienced very poor rainfall resulting in a widespread drought and food crisis. In Zambia this has resulted in a signi cant increase in price for staple foods. Hands at Work is currently assessing the severity of the need in Kalende Community to ensure that the most vulnerable children continue to receive consistent access to basic services.

You can sponsor a child for $20/month and provide access to food, basic medical, and basic education or make a one time contribution to help offset the cost increases used by the ongoing drought in Sub-Saharan Africa. Simply add "Hands at Work" to the comment section when you donate.
