Drawn from Water

I just stumbled upon this organization a few days ago. In Africa there is a tribe that believes in superstition and they kill children when they are considered to be taboo to the community. For one, if a child's front teeth come in before their bottom teeth, they will kill that child.

The Drawn from Water ministry rescued the first children from this 200 year cultural practice. They have set up an orphanage for these children and plan to continue rescues. There is a family from CA who is moving there in 4 weeks to run the orphanage for one year.

Since this is a very new ministry, which began in January 2009, they have a lot of needs. Please check out the website and consider helping in any way you can.
