Sisters reach out to COVID affected families

Mission McNeill is a US-based charitable organization who had been to Botswana in August 2019 to help the children in need. This year they raised funds for the COVID-19 affected families in Botswana where Sisters are ministering. Due to coronavirus travel restrictions, they could not be present.

Using these funds Sisters reached out to 50 families in Kanye, Lobatse, Metsimotlhabe, and surrounding villages and gave them gift hampers with provision items of toiletries and sanitary supplies. Many families who are laborers, self-employed, or have small businesses have lost their source of earning and are struggling. These families were very happy to receive gifts.

The Sisters were very grateful to Paul and Paola McNeill for their help. God bless you.

    Thank you for your out reach. The practical supplies of everyday life are often forgotten in the giving. Continued blessings on you and those you work with. Do stay safe yourselves.
