A Message from John
The Africa Fund has been providing education, health, and nutrition for countless orphans and impoverished families in Uganda, Congo, Kenya, and South Africa since 2004. We’re now approaching 3/4 of a million dollars in direct aid, with no staff and no help from anyone but our donors.
 
We’ve literally saved lives, educated nurses and doctors and auto mechanics, fed babies, cured malaria, saved abandoned grandmas, started businesses, launched careers— and failed, and started all over again (many times)— alongside with some of the poorest people in the world. 
 
People know what they have to do, to climb out of poverty— but they often need a helping hand to get started. We can give that! And we believe, and we find, that generosity has a powerful effect in society. 
 
Today we face endless crisis. Is Mother Gavrilia's confidence still justified? "Fully trust in Jesus Christ", she said. Do we dare?
 
(Because people are curious, we might also mention some hugely significant developments in Orthodoxy in Africa as well, in connection with the war in Ukraine, although I don’t want to make that my main focus.)
