Bush Fire

Unfortunately, we were not spared this year either. However, from the experience of many years we know how to react, especially since we have practically no water here. There is no central water supply, water is laboriously pumped up from a depth of 85m with a hand pump and otherwise we have to bring water from the nearest small town by truck in the dry season.

Good question - how do you fight a hundreds of meters wide bush fire without water? - you set a counter fire and of course you have to be careful that the fire does not go in the wrong direction. You need cut branches and as many helpers as possible.

In the photos you can see how the boys from our school are working hard and enthusiastically. With their help, the fire was contained after a few hours.

Stay healthy and rest assured, we are saved and protected under God's mighty hand.

Love and Blessings from the Bush

Who we are and what we do


Vision


"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
(Jak. 1:27)

Our current project


With your help, the kitchen and the dormitories could be completed. Thank you so much to everyone who was there for us!

A simple community school is currently needed. Not all children in the surrounding villages can attend our school because the distances are too great and the paths too dangerous. Again and again you can encounter elephants, buffalos or other animals that cross to the Nile to drink water. For this reason we decided to build a primary school with four classrooms in one of the villages so that all children can go to school.

Such a building with four classrooms costs about 12,000 euros. A lot of thanks to a generous donation from Denmark, we were able to credit 3,500 euros. So we are only missing 8,500 euros.

A big thank you to everyone who makes this project possible. You can donate directly here.
