MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY SERVING THE WORLD
There are several different ways through which we can serve the world. One is by considering a mission trip to a remote village in Kenya where we have partnered for over a decade. A second way to serve is by sponsoring a child through Food for the Hungry. A third way is by participating in Operation Christmas Child, filling a shoebox with gifts for children in need through Samaritan’s Purse.
More information for each is included below. We really can make a difference in people’s lives across the world!
- H2O is proud to partner with Food for the Hungry in a Community to Community (C2C) relationship with the village of Parkishon, Kenya, to the Samburu and Rendille tribes. Through this partnership with Food for the Hungry (FH), the village leaders set the agenda and participate and drive the programs in their community. Over 90% of the staff in FH are citizens in their respective countries of employment. Their mission is to walk with churches, leaders and families in overcoming all forms of human poverty by living in healthy relationship with God and His creation. Among the issues plaguing Parkishon are lack of healthcare, lack of water, and low school enrollment, especially for the girls. Through this partnership with FH, we have renovated the primary school, helped with building a literacy center, and restored the water filtration system. Since H2O began their C2C partnership with Parkishon in 2007 we have seen tremendous improvement in the quality of life in the villagers. H2O typically sends a team to Parkishon every other summer, and going on an H2O Mission Trip will change your life and the lives of others!
SPONSOR A CHILD THROUGH FOOD FOR THE HUNGRY
- If you can’t go on a mission trip, maybe you can give financially! For a little over $30 per month, you can provide a child in Parkishon with food, clothing, and education, through our partnership with Food for the Hungry. We’ve chosen to partner with FH because it is a Christian organization that has served the poor globally since 1971. They reflect the love of Christ in short-term emergency relief and long-term work to end world hunger. FH is Christ centered, child focused, cherishes culture, and is innovative and relational. Besides mission trips, sponsoring a child is one of the main ways we can support this community. Many of our H2O members have actually been in the homes of the families that they have financially supported over the years in Parkishon!
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
- Each year, H2O collects donations of shoe boxes filled with helpful items including necessities, toys, crafts, etc. and they are sent to children in need all across the world through Samaritan’s Purse.
