Two Saturdays ago, August 10, we had our very first event. We introduced ourselves, the SAHARA Project, and our first fundraising project- scholarships for national nurses at Compassion Evangelical Hospital in Guinea.
We were so blessed to have a huge crowd attend the event and humbled by the generosity of those who gave.
We had hoped to raise $714 to complete the scholarship for one national nurse to train and then serve at the hospital, but received three times that amount in donations. Amazing.
We will be using the surplus to fund scholarships for next year. A team will be visiting the hospital in the next few months and we hope to be in contact with the sponsored nurse. If you want to hear more, sign up for our newsletter by sending us an email or follow the blog.
