Famine Relief

With changing climate and deforestation, droughts in sub-Saharan areas of Africa are becoming more frequent and long lasting. As land dries up the crops die and animals begin to starve, leaving people with no source of income or access to food. When a community’s food supply becomes nonexistent, hunger quickly turns to malnourishment and people become in need of immediate relief.

To assist rural communities suffering from drought and famine, Faces 4 Hope provides locally conscious dispersion of food for immediate survival. Funds given to Faces 4 Hope’s famine relief program purchase large quantities of rice, beans, flour, and corn as well as cover transportation costs to deliver the food to hungry communities.

Medical Clinics

In rough terrain and intense climate, the elements in Africa can pose an added threat to survival. Many people are in need of basic medical care to treat illness or emergency care for accidents or complications during childbirth. Most are unable to be treated because they cannot afford travel to hospitals long distances away or cannot pay for the care even if they most desperately need it.

 

 

 

 

Faces 4 Hope is able to provide medical care to rural communities by holding medical clinics bi-monthly with the help of local and visiting doctors. At these clinics, people can receive affordable medicine and bandaging to heal wounds and illness that could have turned life threatening if not treated. Funds for Faces 4 Hope’s medical care effort provide medical equipment, medicine, and travel for emergency situations.

Cost to run a medical clinic is approximately $300 USD. It is the vision of Faces 4 Hope to obtain a four-wheel drive vehicle for use in emergency medical conditions and for providing traveling clinics to currently unreachable communities needing more frequent medical attention.

 

 

 

Medical Care

HIV/AIDS Ministry

“Fear, Isolation, Stress and Depression Kill, not HIV”.

Despite the high ratio of population infected with AIDS in Africa, those infected are very likely to be rejected and cut off by their community and their family. For AIDS infected women and children this banishment can mean death unless a hand-up is given. Medication for AIDS is free in Tanzania, but food and shelter are not.

Faces 4 Hope assists mothers whose sickness disables them from being able to afford monthly expenses with a home and food for themselves and their children. This allows her to remain with her family and raise her children the best way possible.

Training and Micro loans are given to those HIV widows who are able to work.

Clean Water

Nehema has the job of carrying water instead of going to school

In the sub-Saharan region of Africa, drought threatens the population multiple times a year. In places such as Northern Tanzania, with no accessible ground water, life depends completely on rain. In the dry seasons, women and children can walk up to 20 miles to find a source of water keeping them away from their families for days. Children miss school for weeks to herd cattle to different villages in search of water and grainy land. Even those who are not being forced to travel are at a high risk of water borne illness from the polluted water gathered from small rainwater reservoirs. One in four babies born in this region die of dehydration shortly after birth.

With the help of generous donors, Faces 4 Hope has helped the community build two large above ground water reserves. These tanks can hold between 16,000 and 25,000 gallons of water and are a means for survival for the tribal Maasai people and their livestock during the dry seasons. Using material bought in country and hands of volunteers, a local employment, the cement tanks can be built for about $15,000.

Without adequate water reserves in these rural communities, people gather their water from withering watering holes. People and their animals use these small pools of rainwater leaving the water filthy and polluted. Funds given for Faces 4 Hope’s clean water projects are designated for the building and maintaining of rainwater tanks.
