For well over a decade Westminster Presbyterian Church has actively lead several humanitarian projects in West Africa. These efforts in Ghana, Liberia, and Sierra Leone have primarily focused on enriching the lives of children through improved nutrition and better access to healthcare and educational opportunities. As we continue to exchange ideas and information with our various partners in West Africa, and as a result of our own Mission Trips to visit our partners, we know that our efforts have yielded positive results.
We cannot do this important work without the continuing support of so many of you who understand the many needs and donate to fund these efforts. Sometimes merely donating is not enough and you may wonder just “What” is your donation specifically doing.
Below is a partial listing of some of the ways you specifically can make a difference. You may choose to contribute to a specific project or country; or simply make a donation of general support. Either way, you will make a difference!
We are very grateful for donations of ALL sizes! Please give as you are able.
Currently we are in need of both organizations and/or individuals to sponsor:
A year of support for a part-time nurse at Hope Mission School, Liberia, is $1,000 or the purchase of basic Medical Supplies is $300 or Shipping those supplies is $200 (Memo Line: “Liberian Nurse”)
Monthly support for one Ebola orphan is $35/month. This covers food, shelter, school supplies, and healthcare. (Memo Line: “Liberia Ebola”)
If you wish to learn more please contact:
Please make donations payable to: Westminster Church, 85 Chestnut St, Albany, NY 12210 and note the particular project you wish to support by including the project(s) as identified above in the “Memo Line.”
