Because of you, Comfort is free from the horror of fistula for good.

You may remember Comfort’s story. She suffered a childbirth injury of the worst kind – fistula.

Ever since that tragic day, Comfort became trapped in a life of suffering. The grief of losing her baby. The agonising discomfort of uncontrollable leaking. The dreadful and inescapable smell. The humiliation and shame she endured.

But everything changed for Comfort when you came along with your healing gift of corrective surgery.

Because of you, she has been set free from the horror of fistula for good!

Thank you for responding to Comfort with love, so she can finally heal.

Comfort has now fully recovered from the life-changing surgery she desperately needed. She was happy to share how this has already brought so much relief to her daily life, and her future is now full of opportunity…

“My life has changed. I am feeling ok! Some things I couldn’t do before, I do them now. Like walking, laundry, cooking, fetching water and many other things I couldn’t do before… I’m happy… Now I am training to be a tailor.”

“Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”

Mark 5:34

Kenya’s food crisis continues, but help is reaching families in need… because of you!

Tragically, people in Kenya continue to suffer from a devastating food crisis. Families are starving as the crops they depend on for food die out.

That’s why we made an urgent call out to kind-hearted supporters like you. And you responded so generously!

Thanks to you, we were able to send help where it was needed most – to the people of Turkana.

This region has experienced five consecutive seasons of drought for the first time in recorded history. And more than 90% of open water sources have dried up.

Turkana is also home to some 300,000 households with a person with disabilities, who are struggling to access food, water and medical aid.

But because of you and your willingness to give and sacrifice, help is arriving!

Your gifts have made it possible for families in Turkana County to receive food and life-saving supplies in the midst of this devastating crisis. Thank you so much.

Thank you for going above and beyond!

We invited a small group of supporters to give an exceptionally generous gift to fund Crisis Education Feeding Packages to children and their families for a year.

An incredible number of you took us up on this life-saving opportunity to support a child to stay in school with a nutritious lunch every day, on top of receiving life-saving supplies for their family.

‘He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

Micah 6:8

John can see AND shine his brightest because of you!

Remember 8-year-old John? This little boy’s dream was to become an engineer so he could build houses and help his family. But that dream was being taken away by cataracts.

John was going blind… until you sent your Miracle gift to help him receive sight-saving surgery before it was too late.

Because of you, John and his family were able to travel from his village to the city for the surgery John needed. John was a little nervous on arrival, but the healthcare workers were very kind and patient, gently holding his hand as he prepared for surgery.

We are delighted to share that John’s cataract surgery was a success! When his bandages were removed, he opened his eyes to discover that he could see clearly. A Miracle!

John said, “I am excited. I can see small letters. Thank you for my Miracle.”

Thank you for your generosity to help restore John’s sight, so he can shine his brightest and realise the potential God has given him!

John’s mum, Mary, shared…

“We prayed a lot every night that someone might help us, and that God would send someone to help John. To those people in Australia, thank you very much. We really appreciate your help to us, even though you don’t know us.”

But John wasn’t the only person who received the Miracle gift of sight. In fact because of the generosity of you and other amazing Miracles supporters, over 15,000 people have received the sight-saving surgery they desperately needed. This is an incredible achievement, only made possible because of you!

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

John 8:12

International Day of Persons with Disabilities

People with disabilities are systematically excluded from all aspects of society including education, access to social and health services, employment, and community integration. They often live in the world’s poorest countries, putting them at greater risk of extreme climate change events, displacement, and poverty. In order for us to achieve true equity for people with disability, their voices and priorities must be front and centre.

Join us this International Day of People with Disabilities as we listen to and elevate the priorities of people with disabilities on issues such as the barriers to inclusion including equity, climate change, accessibility, and gender, so we can move beyond inclusion and toward equity for people with disabilities in our region and beyond.
