Container arrives in Tanzania

In recent years GEMS has partnered with the “One Person Project” and Director Brenda Lowe in sending several containers to the Muvuma orphanage and local hospital in Kahama Tanzania.

Beyond the basic needs the children of the orphanage were overwhelmed and excited when they received their new soccer balls and uniforms. We are currently raising funds to finish construction of the larger orphanage so that more children can be helped.

In mid January 2015 the most recent container arrived in Kahama. It was filled with clothing, shoes, sportswear, medical supplies, educational and construction material, and more.

A container sent from our Langley depot early May recently arrived in Nicaragua.

The container took some time to be delivered as it was held up in customs. Near the end of July they were able to open the container and begin to distribute the material.

Pastor Emanuel Aguirre oversaw the distribution. With the help of Pastor Rivera and Pastor Madrigal they brought sewing machines to widows and single mothers, medical equipment to the Rehabilitation Hospital, and food and clothing to many poor people in and around the area of Managua.
