Our Outreach Operation(s): The “Support to Congo” example.

As a particular community began to pull itself up from the perennial ravages of war and desolation in the Democratic Republic of Congo their need for assistance came to our notice.  We learnt that trading in fairly used clothing had become a very lucrative business there but these items were beyond what many of the people could afford; children and adults alike! We mobilised donors within our community in Milton Keynes and shipped out about 300Kg of meticulously sorted, well laundered, and neatly packed decent clothes, including some new ones, to the DRC community – all logistics expenses to destination fully paid. We followed up to ensure that the clothes were distributed free to the needy people. The hope and joy impacted on many families in that community was immeasurable.

We are currently working with partners in the educational and healthcare sectors in Nigeria and Ghana to compile lists of items needed by identified communities, and will be reaching out soon to donors who could provide these items that we believe would make significant impact in the local communities.

If you would like to speak with us regarding an identified need or you would like to make a donation to Holding Forth Mercy Ministry, please send an e-mail to admin@holdingforth.com with your contact details, and we will get in touch with you soonest.
