Call for Friendship Cards for The Giving Spirit’s 10,000 Lives Project
 
In the coming weeks, TGS is committed to serving 10,000 homeless lives by building and delivering new Health and Safety Kits to help protect our most vulnerable neighbors during this dangerous time. 
 
Each Health and Safety Kit will include a homemade “Friendship Card” – it’s often the first item that recipients pull from the bag because it tells them just how much we care and gives them hope that they are not forgotten!
 
We need YOUR HELP, your compassion and creativity to help make these cards. Use what you have on hand! No need to buy supplies. Write a personal message sharing your love, encouragement and wishes for the recipient’s good health and safety. Decorate your card with color, drawings, whatever would bring you joy to receive! Feel free to sign you name, so they know who spent the time and effort to brighten their day. Make as many as you have the time and energy to make!

Medical Benevolence Foundation
 
Lately here in LA, we’ve all been lamenting the shortage of toilet paper; at Embangweni Mission Hospital in northern Malawi, they’ve faced a far greater issue: a shortage of toilets.
 
Learning of their urgent need, BPC, through Medical Benevolence Foundation (MBF), provided seed money from designated Mission funds to construct a block of eight toilets. Late this March the complex was finally completed and now serves around 200 patients and staff daily. 
 
This rural African hospital serving 250 surrounding villages and which BPC has long-supported, is now at work on the second stage of their sanitation project: building a washing and laundry bay, a sharp instrument disposal pit, plus improving the ground’s drainage system.  
 
You cannot imagine how precious your church’s support has been to us and our community,” said Administrator Changuluta Soko. “The toilet facility will go a long way toward improving sanitation and hygiene at the hospital. We at Embangweni are forever grateful.”
