Hello friends and Shalomers:
Two nights ago we had heavy rains which turned to floods for six hours. The disaster caused many people to lose their houses and gardens and their lives. Two of the people who died are a 67 year old woman and her grand daughter of 12 years. When the water entered her home, it brought down the house and swept everything out. Their bodies were
found in Lake Victoria at the source of the Nile.
In the spirit of
shalom we are raising funds to help the affected families. We call upon
Shalomers wherever you are to join us in this situation.Though these people
were affected directly, we all are affected indirectly.
