Children enjoying their Christmas meal at Daniel Hoover, 2017
Giving Tuesday began in 2012 as a day of global giving to demonstrate the great American tradition of generosity. Each year, we see our sponsors and partners open their hearts in a pouring out of generosity toward our brothers and sisters in Liberia as a demonstration of the Love of Christ through his Church. This Giving Tuesday, I am thrilled to once again offer up the opportunity to give to the children and staff of Daniel Hoover Childrens Village and the Stewart Deaf Home through a Christmas feast. Last year the children enjoyed plates of joloff rice, chicken, bread, a sweet, popcorn, and a special drink.
We also continue to pray for support for the building repairs at the Childrens Home. Nine roofs have been replaced, but 4 need to be replaced and there are still many repairs to be made on all 9 buildings.
A dear friend of ACFI has made a $15,000 pledge for Giving Tuesday, and we are praying for a donor to match that amount! If you feel led, you can make a donation of ANY amount at www.africanchildsponsorship.com under the Donations tab or send a check, by Dec. 1, to:
