Breakfast, lunch and supper - it’s amazing how much rice we get through - 12,375kg per annum to be precise! Wouldn’t it be amazing to be able to grow our own…
For each $1 that you donate we will get $1 in matched funds.
Through a generous offer of funds, we are able to match any funds that are donated between the 27th of November and the 3rd of December towards the purchase of this field.
The Garden currently uses around 12,375kg of rice every year at a cost of Rs5,94,000. The purchase of the land means that 16,000kgs of rice can be grown and the surplus used at our local feeding programs.
This means a huge reduction in our overhead costs, jobs for local people and more funds to care for more children!
Kala is just one of the many women who are desperate for a Maternity and Child Care Unit to be built at our Medical Centre in the Rhema Garden. Read her story here.
Every time a woman in the developing world falls pregnant, her risk of dying is 200 times higher than that of a woman in the developed world.
Every day, 800 women worldwide die of preventable causes linked to pregnancy and childbirth. India leads all nations in the numbers of maternal deaths, with poor rural women contributing disproportionately to the high maternal mortality rate (MMR).
In Cumbum where our medical unit is set up, there is a shortage of good facilities that supports mums have a safe, clean natural birth. We are looking to set up such a facility.
We've already raised 50% of the £65,000 needed to build a maternity and childcare unit above our existing Medical Centre in the Rhema Garden. Can you donate and help us to get another step of the way there?
