Hope in the form of a food parcel

A group of Christian workers with a food parcel hurried down the narrow alley, trying not to flinch at the foul smell of open sewers. Stepping over puddles, they arrived at a courtyard. Tall, crumbling buildings surrounded a barren patch of land and children playing among debris.

Visibility was low as the group stepped into a tiny, dark apartment and listened to Johnson’s* story. Clothing, shoes, bags, and even an empty CAM food parcel box surrounded the elderly man as he spoke. During Liberia’s civil war in 1990, shrapnel tore through Johnson’s apartment and hit him, paralyzing him from the waist down.

Amid Johnson’s poverty, God’s love has worked through the hearts and hands of His people, bringing hope to a desolate heart in the form of a food parcel. Thank you, supporters, for your help in ministering to Johnson and other elderly people in great need.
