During the month of June, we are collecting a Special Mission Offering benefiting children near and far through Camp Alkulana and Journey Partners. 80% of our offering will be given to support Richmond children going to camp and 20% will be given to the work for water education and health for children in Zimbabwe.
Camp Alkulana is a ministry of the River City Faith Network. The camp offers an affordable summer camp experience to Richmond area children, focusing on those that are eligible for free and reduced lunch at school. Throughout the year, Alkulana offers ongoing supports in Richmond to its campers through large group gatherings, a mentoring program for older campers, and a targeted leadership program for its junior counselors. For more information visit their website.
Journey Partners is an ecumenical and interfaith not-for-profit ministry. The organization provides clean and available water, education and resources, and health and medicine around the world and at home. From their website; “Water is the lifeline of any community. In some areas of Zimbabwe, especially those far from city resources, deep water wells can be the only answer. Journey Partners works to provide dry areas of the country in which we work with access to clean water. We’ve also worked with clinics to install water purification projects that can run on a 12-volt car battery and table salt”. For more information visit their website.
You can give to the Missions Offering online or by mailing a check to 8040 Villa Park Drive #250, Richmond, VA 23228.
