The Mission House have been able to transform the compassion of students from Hertfordshire into real life change for five families in Madagascar.
Thanks to the hard work and generosity of girls from Abott’s Hill school, The Mission House were able to partner with Youth With A Mission (YWAM), Antananarivo, to weather proof houses for five very poor families living on about £1 per day.
“These are five of the poorest families in our community”, Fiona Hopkins, a leader with YWAM, reports. “The basic houses had thatched roofs which leaked badly in wet weather. Most families also didn’t even have a bed to share.”
The girls at Abott’s Hill school raised nearly £1200 to provide new tin roofs and also to provide a bed and mattress for each family.
Thank you to Abott’s Hill school and to the students who worked hard fundraising to make the project possible. Another five families know that there are people of compassion in the world who are willing to go the extra mile to help protect them from bad weather and help their children enjoy the comfort and dignity of a bed at night.
