Maize and Mulch – Good News in Africa

At our full court meeting on September 27th, our Persistent Friend Lorna MacQueen reported that by September 16th, the United Church had raised one million dollars to address the problem of famine in the Horn of Africa. This money is to be matched by the federal government.

Lorna also told us about a “good news” video in YouTube. It tells about a similar drought in Zimbabwe – and the response, supported in large part by the United Church – that has prevented this drought from becoming the kind of famine that has devasted the Horn of Africa.
