Zambia Hope News update -- December 2009

In the fall of 2009, Hope Farm planned a major planting of soy beans, which are a profitable crop in Zambia. Following a request from Adamson and Anne Musonda, directors of Zambia Hope International, Hope Mountain Foundation sent $4,000 for this purpose.

For that Christmas, as it was last year, the seniors living at Turkey Creek Forest in Gainesville, Florida, got together to write Christmas cards to all the children under the care of Zambia Hope International, and sent them by FedEx to Lusaka.

Also as in the last two years, Hope Mountain sent funds to pay for a Christmas dinner for all the kids. This year $3,000 was sent so that the kids could also have at least one or two simple gifts each.

We are still waiting to get a 20-ft container to send the hundreds of computers and peripherals, as well as school supplies, children's clothes and stuffed animals that have been collected in Frederick Country Maryland, and are sitting at the Seniors Resource Center in Frederick, ready to be shipped out. It seems the containers for a long trip to Zambia are not easy to find!
