PWRDF in ZAMBIA
The Kasenga rural settlement is situated 51 kilometers east of Lusaka and has a population of 16,000 people. Currently the nearest health centre is 16 kilometers away from the settlement, a long way to go, especially for pregnant women who cannot afford to pay for a taxi. Women have given birth on the side of the road while travelling to the health clinic and some deaths have even occurred on the way to the health facility. The Anglican Diocese of Lusaka has built a health facility in the settlement. However, it cannot be opened until an incinerator is built because of requirements from the Ministry of Health. PWRDF has partnered with the Diocese to build the incinerator and open the health facility benefitting the entire population of the settlement. To read other stories please go to www.pwrdf.org
NEW STEWARDSHIP PROGRAM
Parish Council continues to look for interested parishioners, to join this important committee, to help strengthen the future of the Church of the Holy Trinity.
PEACE ARCH NEWS ADVERTISING
We would like thank our new sponsors who have contributed to our continued advertising in the Peace Arch news, on the “Faith on the Semiahmoo Peninsula” page. We are still and are looking for future sponsorship. Would you be willing to take on a month? The monthly cost is about $200 (tax deductible).
A GENTLE REMINDER
While our beloved Joan was here, she was always so kind to take care of us and clean up coffee mugs, spoons, etc left in the kitchen! Now that she has retired, though, it’s important that we all take the responsibility to clean up after ourselves. Thank you!
