Cabo Verde drought needs for a family are less than $50 a month to sustain a family through this crisis, help them so they may rise to meet tomorrow with hope, faith and love.
CABO VERDE DROUGHT CONDITIONS! That Others May Rise is supporting Liga Nazarena De Solidariedade / Nazarene Solidarity League (A recognized NGO) in their campaign ‘I Want To Help’ to provide relief to the rural areas of the country of Cabo Verde that are affected by a severe drought. It is estimated that over 17,200 households or roughly 25% of the entire country’s population will be adversely affected by this drought. Along with Nazarena Solidarity League we will be concentrating our efforts to raise money to focus on the families! The objectives will be on nutritional needs for families through immediate distribution of food and for the mid-term creating a food bank of non-perishable food for distribution throughout the drought.
As we look to our own Blessings, consider reaching out to others in their time of need with a gift of faith and love; they will be thankful and you will be enriched.
Our ultimate goal is to raise $50 (US) per stricken family per month for at least 10 months. We have a huge task at hand, and we know everyone has a big heart when it comes to helping those in need!
