Fresh memories from Africa and Eastern Europe.
Hello Friends of ORA!
The proper aim of giving is to put the recipients in a state where they no longer need our gifts - C.S. Lewis
As we head towards Christmas I’m still carrying fresh memories from a recent visit to Africa and Eastern Europe. Christmas is a time of gathering, a time of celebration, a time of indulgence, a time of giving to our loved ones. It’s also a wonderful time to remember those less fortunate than us, and an opportunity to bless others as we’ve been blessed.
In August and September I travelled with ORA NZ Board chairperson, Chris Corney, visiting ORA NZ project partners in Uganda, Kenya, Bulgaria and Moldova. We spent considerable time listening to our ORA New Zealand
partners. It was so rewarding to hear story after story from people who have received a small amount of help from us in New Zealand, and now they are helping themselves in ways we never envisioned. I’ll try to condense six weeks of listening into six pages!
