AFRICA HOPE COMMUNITY
August 1, 2011
Africa Hope Community was providence for a family for Congo. A friend family of 4 members came to USA. Due to the misconduct of the host family, they could not stand to stay any more with the host family. They went to sign a lease contract without furniture. They decide to move anyway hoping that God will provide furniture for them by faith. When Africa Hope Community heard that, the president of AHC contacted some donors and persons to donate any furniture. I was called to donate my time and my car. We went at the donor place, with the beneficiary family, to pick up some items. It was a surprise and providence for this family. The donor family seeing the beneficiary family they were astonished and happy to be in touch with beneficiary directly. The donor said “I’m am glad that all furniture to the one who need it the most, some time we give to some organization not being sure if that will serve, some will sell, but for first time I see the one who will use,” the beneficiary could not believe their eyes, they got all they need (TV, dining table and chairs, dishes, sofas, loveseat, mattresses, clothes …) This beneficiary family were touched to get more than what they were missing from a unknown family. What God love. I was so happy to use my car, my gas, my time for this cause. I saw the connection between donors and beneficiary, from that time on, both family stayed in touch. I started to talk about AHC to others, because I am sure they contributions and in kind contributions will reach the beneficiaries. Please endorse Africa Hope Community not to help unknown people, but really people in need that you will meet, that you will smile to them
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the joy of giving and receiving, the deep connection between donor and beneficiary
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
like to recommend them to call, to reach more people, even business, corporation, and government agencies because donors will be happy to see the joy of beneficiaries
