Our #1 need right now through Oasis of Hope is a drop-in center with a total cost of $8,000.
There are 150-200 youth involved through Oasis of Hope and Jacob and Maureen and their volunteers can only use a run down hall with few seating options for two hours a week right now.
This drop-in center will provide a beautiful and safe place for youth and families to:
Oasis of Hope's mission is to share God's love with action and our consistent presence. Jacob and Maureen have been serving in the Mathare slums of Nairobi through Oasis of Hope for six years, mostly by themselves. It was in January of 2020 that his friend in South Africa that he grew up with in Mathare decided to take action and connect Oasis of Hope to People Bridge with Brian and Erin Clark.
Jacob grew up there and knows the way of life, the isolation, poverty, and the needs. He meets weekly with over 100 children and knows their families. Along with volunteers, they love and serve in this slum area that is being affected in huge ways because of Covid-19.
Jacob and Maureen are gatekeepers in their community. They are known and trusted by the local government officials, churches, and community leaders. They are the only full-time nonprofit that is focused on children holistically and meeting that need in their area.
Please prayerfully consider a generous one-time donation to help us meet this need.
Thank you in advance for your giving and care to make this happen!
