To help children in Africa on streets I jogged three years ago.
In 2009, I traveled to Kivuruga, Rwanda with three other community leaders from Cambridge, Minnesota. "Our Response" is a community to community movement that began the same year partnering with World Vision.
This Saturday, I am running a half-marathon with Team World Vision to help change lives in Rwanda, Africa. The needs are great, but this is something I can do. World Vision works with communities in desperate need to help provide things like clean water, nutritious food, education, medical care, and economic opportunity.
The run is for water. Every $50 donated provides clean water for one person in Rwanda for an entire generation. I am also running 13.1 miles for a young girl name Joselyn who lives in Kivuruga. I met her three years ago and our family supports her through World Vision. Again, it is something I can do.
1 John 3:17
If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?
What can you do regarding world poverty?
