Today we are thinking of mothers and aunts in Africa whose families are vulnerable to COVID. Families in Zambia are especially vulnerable as they have little or no information about COVID and have weaker immune systems if living with HIV.
Dear Friend: Happy holidays! Looking back 2020 has been a tough year.
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy Fall! As part of program activities for our clean cooking stoves project, 1000 new stoves were provided to vulnerable women during the winter season in Zambia. Community residents love their new stoves as these keep them warm, cook food faster, and save money on fuel.
“Safe Park” was designed for children from the community to learn and play in a safe environment. Due to COVID, program activities were cancelled for the months of April, May, and June. In July, we resumed “Safe Park” in a new format to provide education and prevent the spread of COVID.
As a result of the generosity of an anonymous donor, we were able to provide clean cooking stoves and education to vulnerable families in Zambia. Over the last four winter months, 1000 families have benefitted from the provision of clean cooking stoves. Family members love their new stoves as these keep them warm, cook food faster, and save money on fuel.
Dear Friend: Happy June!
Dear Friend: Hope you and your loved ones are staying safe from the COVID-19 virus. As many of us continue to work from the safety of our homes, we are reminded that it's a privilege to have a safe shelter, ample food, and good health care. However, this is not true for most families we work with in Zambia and India.
Dear Power of Love Friend: Hope you and your family are keeping safe from the virus. I wanted to let you know that Power of Love is taking aggressive steps to keep our staff and beneficiary families safe from COVID-19. We are monitoring the situation continuously in both Zambia and India where are programs are located.
“Safe Park” is Power of Love’s community outreach program and is free and open to all children in the community of Matero, in Lusaka, Zambia. Program activities are held on Saturday mornings and any child from the community can join us in play and learning.
