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.

Smiling-childrenIt is hard to express the joy of seeing the smiling faces of children who have received a hot meal where there is not much else for them to smile about.
Last September we sent a container from our Langley depot to help an orphanage in Romania. The children were not the only ones to be blessed with warm food and clothing, seniors and many others benefited from this shipment
The container arrived in time to distribute the warm clothing before the on set of very cold weather. It came to the town of Ploiesti, Romania; this is about half hour drive north of the capital city Bucharest. From there it was distributed to several communities in the area for seniors homes, orphanages, hospitals, homeless and to families in need.
This container is part of an ongoing effort in the area by GEMS through several ministries to bring relief to the motherless and the widows, seeing to the needs of those that have very little.
