Help Give the Citizens of Nigeria Clean Water to Drink

Here in the United States and other western nations, we see people wasting water every day. Sometimes we just don’t realize how precious water is . . . and although there might be a lot of it, whatever amount we have is limited. Our missionaries in Africa, though, and the people they serve, know the value of water all too well. Nearly every day, they see firsthand the struggle of living with too little water. They see people dehydrated, without enough to drink. They see gardens and small farms turn to dust. They know what it is like to want for water.

“Water is scarce here,” Fr. Albert (a missionary living and working in Nigeria) writes. “The scarcity here is so serious that things have gotten to a critical stage.”

Support the Students of Bruh Tesfa

Africa is a land of incredible beauty with numerous, natural treasures — most important of all is its diverse population. Although the people have been torn apart by countless tragedies, they are resilient. They seek peace and hold onto hope. That’s why Bruh Tesfa — Bright Hope — is so important to the youth in northern Ethiopia.

Father Paul Reilly, project manager for Bruh Tesfa writes: we believe that it is mainly through education that young people can be empowered to transform their lives and that of society. With these powerful words, the staff takes direction and action to help make life better for the next generation of citizens in Adigrat. For these youth the ability to go to school is key to accomplishing what their parents never could.

Support the Orphaned Children of Nigeria

Happy Easter Season! This is such a wonderful time of year -- filled with new life, renewed hope, and great joy in the possibilities which present themselves before each of us. For me, Easter time has always been a time when I am reminded of how opportunities for new life and second chances present themselves in everyday experiences.

Unfortunately, in other parts of the world, death for mothers and infants during childbirth is an ongoing problem. According to a recent United Nations’ report, since only about one third of pregnancies in Nigeria is attended by a skilled attendant, a woman’s chance of dying from pregnancy and childbirth in Nigeria is 1 in 13. It is a tragedy that Nigeria is addressing -- yet in the meantime, every year more and more infants who have lost their mothers during childbirth need immediate care!
