Hope and Healing in the Midst of Famine

You have probably heard about the drought in Northern Kenya and in the Horn of Africa, particularly in Somalia.  Thousands of Somali people are leaving Somalia and coming to Dadaab refugee camps for aid.  BethanyKids has been working in Dadaab for many years and is established in the area.  The pediatric surgeons make several trips a year to the refugee camps and children are brought to Kijabe weekly for operations.  Because of the food crisis and the large influx of people, the demands for medical aid have increased dramatically and BethanyKids is trying to address these needs.  Please pray for Erik and the rest of the BethanyKids administration as they are prayerfully making decisions and plans to help bring healing and real hope to the refugees in Dadaab.

  1. I just came across this news article and thought of you. It's about a children's village in Kenya - solar company built a donated system that puts the village on solar energy. Possiblity for BethanyKids?
