As a result of so many children attending our FOP school without eating anything from their home we have started serving them porridge for lunch. Besides filling tummies this has resulted in reduced absenteeism and has encouraged more parents to send their children to school.
The cost for this feeding programme is NZ$600 per month.
Donations, or regular support, would be greatly appreciated to help us continue this much needed programme for up to 200 children.
Together united as links in a chain, we can bring them fresh hope, make them smile again
We at Fountain of Peace hope you are as inspired as we are by this song that our friend, Tania Sharr, wrote after spending time in Zambia and Uganda. Tania said “During that trip I was reminded that we all have a role to play, like links in a chain. If one of the links is missing then none of the others can do their job. We are all as important as the other. Together we can bring fresh hope and make them smile again.”
Lyrics by Tania Sharr. Music and vocals by Jay Weston. Fountain of Peace has permission to use this song – thanks so much Tania and Jay.
Please support FOP NZ Board member Debra Maheno and her friend Leah McNaughton in their quest to ‘Stump The Hump’ (walking the 62km Hump Ridge Track in just 24 hours beginning midnight 7th Feb) to raise funds for the caring of orphaned and abandoned babies in our Bethel Babies Home in Uganda.
Their goal is to raise $1000.
