Seven hundred children die in Africa every year, not from cancer or an accident, but from drinking bad water. Harvest Baptist Church decided to do something about it.
Around 100 children attended their local VBS over five days and leaders gave them a challenge to bring in money to buy water filters for kids in Kenya, Africa. Each day children had a contest to see who could bring in more change, boys or girls. Together, these kids did something that no one expected.
These kids raised over $1,000 in just five days, being able to purchase 29 family-size water filters. Because of these children, these families will not have access to clean and pure water for the next 10 years. Amazing!
Thank you Harvest Baptist Church of Wapakoneta and VBS Leaders for choosing us as your mission this year!
