HELP FAMILIES IN NEED HAVE A NEW START
Like you, Maybin is
a believer and wants to take care of his family. Only he lives halfway across the world and earns a living as a farmer and
fisherman in Mbabala Island, Zambia. He, his wife and four children all attend the local church.
Maybin has a strong work ethic and every day he trusts Jesus to have enough food for his family and resources to send his children
The challenge for Maybin and other families on the island is that the lake they fish in is being over-harvested and not producing
as many fish as it did just five years ago.
He and the other fishermen are facing a serious problem because fishing isn’t producing enough food to live on and the soil on
the island is not good enough to produce food to sustain his family. Bright Hope has tested the soil and found it is very acidic.
But there's Hope and we need your help.
BE A PART OF SUSTAINABLE CHANGE
Maybin’s church and the other churches on the island, have asked for your help. With a single donation, you can
help make a long-term difference for these families by equipping them to feed their families and earn reliable income through
“If we could provide one year of fertilizers, then the farmers could grow more corn and make enough to care for their families
and buy fertilizer for the next growing season," said the Zambia Program Director, Mark Brubacher.
Our African church partners would like to help farmers jumpstart their sustainable farms.
Here are a few highlights about this program and how you can help:
- 200 families have been identified by our church partners as needing this help.
- Our goal is to raise $60 per family ($2 a day this month) for 200 families. The total need is $12,000.
- This is a one-time assistance and is not creating dependency.
- By helping provide these fertilizers and soil supplements, we are helping poor families to increase their farming production
and rely less on their failing fish businesses.
- Funds will also be used to help purchase better seeds for families.
Bright Hope has been working in Zambia in partnership with in-country churches since 1992. We bring Hope for Today, Tomorrow and
Eternity to the extreme poor. This project is part of Bright Hope’s Hope & Light Campaign.
Your gift will dramatically help these Zambian families and our Hope & Light Campaign to minister to those living
on less than $1 a day.
Come partner with us in being the hands and feet of Jesus to bring Hope to these Zambian families.
