Momo
Momo

This need is to raise the final $2300 needed for Momo Bakari’s life-saving surgery in India, as well as, the $1750 needed for Momo and one family member to travel to India for one week. This surgery, which is for the removal of the remaining 20% of her brain tumor, was scheduled to take place in Kenya. It was later decided by the hospital that a surgery of this magnitude was not possible within Kenya. It is our desire to assist Action Ministry in providing Momo Bakari with this urgent surgery. By donating to this need you are not only helping save Momo’s life, but also sharing the love of Christ to her and her entire family.
With your help we were able to raise $3,850 towards this need!

 

HIV
Providing medication for HIV+ children

Providing quality care for HIV positive children is a primary focus at Hope Again Medical Clinic. Currently there are 146 children registered in the clinic’s HIV/Aids program. The medical clinic provides these children with daily medication and also cares for any other medical needs that may arise. It only costs $3 a month to provide one child with HIV medical care. We are raising funds to cover each of these 146 children through the end of the 2014 calendar year. For only $27 you can secure medication for one child for the next 9 months. With your help we were able to raise $3,942 towards this need.

shoes
School Shoes for Home Again

Most everyone walks everywhere on the dirt roads of Kaihura. So shoes are subjected to a lot of wear and tear, and don’t often last very long. As the children at Home Again go back to school, they need new shoes to wear to school. All of the school aged children at Home Again go to Hope Academy, which is a far walk twice a day everyday.

everest
Support for Everest

A few months ago I was contacted by an organization called CA Bikes that provides special bikes and wheelchairs for young people in Uganda who need assistance walking. They had found a boy named Everest who was paralyzed from the chest down and was suffering from horrible bedsores all over his legs, so bad that at night the rats would come and chew on his legs.

CA Bikes had taken the boy to the hospital, but didn’t have any way to support his future. When Faith went to visit Everest in the hospital, his sores were beginning to heal, but he was still extremely physically weak. Once Everest was able to travel he was brought to Hope Again Medical Center, where his sores fully healed.

Because Everest has never been able to walk, he has developed a love for making handcrafts. He can make beautiful baskets and other woven crafts. When BHTF learned what a talent Everest has for craftwork, Faith decided to offer him a job working in the craft shop at Village Art.

It is so exciting to see a young man come from a horrible, dirty, disease filled situation to a place where he is recovering and working towards becoming self-sustaining. While Everest is working towards becoming self-sustaining, he still needs your help to get established in a home, and pay for some of his continuing medical expenses.  With your help we were able to give $600 towards this need!

landscaping
Landscaping for New Playground at Hope Academy

Hope Academy Primary School is situated among the hills that surround Kaihura. Because of it’s location, finding a large, flat, open area for the students to play on has been a challenge. Hope Academy wishes to have enough room for a playground, a soccer field, and a volleyball court, but first the area around the school must be graded and leveled. Once this landscaping is done there will be a permanent place for every child that goes to Hope Academy to enjoy.

In order to make this happen we need to be able to rent the right tools and the proper labor team. We would love for this need to be done as quickly as possible so the children have a fun and safe place to play.

With your help we were able to give $185 towards this need!

piping
Piping for Clean Water

Action Ministry is in the process of bringing clean water to Blessed Camp and to the school and clinic that are based there. Because of the overwhelming need for access to clean water, a second water tank was needed. Now that they have the water tank, Action Ministry is excited to complete the piping that connects the water tanks and the source.

In order to properly complete this project and provide clean water for the medical clinic, the school, and the 200 residents who are in Blessed Camp, the pipes cost a total of $770.  As with every need, 100% of what you give will go directly to making this project a reality.

With your help we were able to raise $770 towards this need!

pump
Gas Powered Water Pump – Necessary to dig all future wells!

Without this pump, we are not able to continue to provide clean water for these communities! This pump will allow them to continue fighting against typhoid and other water related diseases.  With your help we were able to raise $1400 towards this need!

incinerator
Incinerator Needed at Blessed Camp Medical Clinic

The dispensary building is complete and is already being used to treat patients (which means we are no longer treating patients outside in the heat or under a tree). In order for the clinic to be officially registered and recognized by the government, the clinic needs an incinerator.

This incinerator will be used for waste management at the clinic, and is vital to proper sanitation for those receiving treatment at the clinic. It can be built for $1115 and will be the next step in helping us be recognized by the government. This status will provide funding and allow us to serve a broader community, which is the goal of Action Ministry – to love practically on as many people as possible.

With your help we were able to raise $250 towards this need.

car
Project Car

Blessed Camp and Action Ministry are in dire need of a vehicle to help with daily errands and life at the camp. Almost all goods used at Blessed Camp are bought in from Mombasa, which is 60 kilometers (37.3 miles) away, and currently this has to be done through public transportation. This vehicle would also be a great help in transporting volunteers, instead of renting cars and taxis or using the bus that could take a long time.

Cars are much more expensive in Kenya, and this would allow us to buy a quality used van.

With your help we were able to raise $20,000 to pay for this van!

chairs

The dispensary building is complete and is already being used to treat patients (which means we are no longer treating patients outside in the heat or under a tree).

In order to treat patients properly and make sure they are as comfortable as possible in their time of need, we need 8 chairs for those visiting the clinic. One chair – stable, quality, and comfortable – costs $40, and we need 8 to make sure that patients will have a place to sit.

Giving patients a place to rest while they see the doctor and nurse on duty is a priority for us.

With your help we were able to raise $280 towards this need!

The Medical Clinic building is complete and is already being used to treat patients (which means we are no longer treating patients outside in the heat or under a tree).

In order to treat patients properly, the medical clinic needs to be able to store and have available medicines for various treatments. Most of these medicines need to be stored at the proper temperature or they will be ineffective, and so the clinic is in need of a fridge. This need is so much more than a fridge, it is a key factor in helping Action Ministry serve it’s community through proper and helpful medications.

In order to treat patients properly, the medical clinic needs to be able to securely store medicines, medical records, and supplies in an organized way. Action Ministry needs cabinets for each room so that each time a patient comes in, the staff can treat the patient instead of being worried or distracted trying to find whatever is needed. These cabinets will help each supply have it’s spot, increasing the speed in which we can provide proper care, as well as keeping it locked. For $103, one room can have the storage space needed. With your help we were able to raise $412 towards this need!

We recently visited the village of Mbale after receiving their application for a protected water source.

legsurgery
Urgent Leg Surgery for Mr. Nyamawi

Mr.Nyamawi Chale is a leprosy victim at Blessed Camp.  A few years ago while begging to assist his family in Mombasa City, he was hit by a vehicle while crossing the road and sustained serious leg injuries. As a result, a metal rod was inserted in his leg as part of the treatment. The metal rod was to be removed after a period of time. The owner of the car who had hit him could not be traced after the initial treatment and so their was no one to meet the medical cost of removing the iron rod from Mr. Nyamawi’s leg. He has been forced to live with it for years and this is causing him immense physical pain and interfering with his productivity and caring for his children.

The surgery to have the rod removed will cost $420, and the follow up treatment that is needed, along with the rehab process will cost $300.
