Villages are organized by what we might call family compounds and family compounds by huts. Each cluster of huts represents approximately 100 people. A wonderful gift to give is to feed a family a Christmas meal (and leftovers). What an amazing gift: to have a Christmas dinner unexpectantly delivered!
Last year on Christmas morning we woke up to “a little bit less” but actually “a whole lot more”.
ACrossMission and its partners and donors awoke with joy in their hearts. Why? Because that day, in an impoverished region of Tanzania East Africa, in 13 communities more than 3,100 Christmas meals were being served!
Poor and hungry people were serving and taking meals to poorer and hungrier people. For us, that morning, Christmas happened…and it was awesome.
Orphans, widows, those with leprosy, the elderly, sick and marginalized were acknowledged, fed and loved. Relationships were forged, communities grew together and were just a little bit stronger because of the generosity of donors.
This is a great Christmas gift to give yourself or, to those you love.
Will you help us reach our 2018 goal:
9,500 meals in 37 communities in Tanzania
