‘Work it Out’ – with Vivian: Isaiah 58
I am not going to talk about anything else today apart from the gruesome reality in which I have now found myself, by offering our crowdfunding platform – www.fundanenterprise.org to support persons distressed by the Covid-19 challenges.
On 1 April 2020, our Foundation created this support page – https://fundanenterprise.org/covid-19-support-page/. We asked persons who are financially distressed as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic to come forward and request for help.
They are now doing so en-mass.
We are scrutinizing and compiling the qualifying applications as they come and have already started a fundraising campaign to this effect. The campaign can be viewed here: https://fundanenterprise.org/campaigns/covid-19-support-for-distressed-persons/
I have been greatly distressed, seeing the kind of requests that come in and the comments people make as to why they need money.
“To feed my kids and family”
“To buy food stuff”
“I need money to feed my children
“To feed my aged mother”
“I need money to feed myself and family”
“To buy food stuffs for my family pls. The lockdown is really affecting us”
“I have a 10 months old baby and we need to feed”
“I need to purchase medications for my children”
I have been pained every day since 2 April when these applications started coming in, because I can imagine how difficult life must be for some people out there, and because I do not know where to get all the monies required to help these people.
We have paid out some monies to some families, and the more we pay, the more we receive applications (though we keep scrutinizing to ensure all double or fake applications are removed).
Please we need help from well- meaning people out there. We need help for these people- our brothers and sisters.
We have a fear of the unknown and we know you do too, but if you can still feed yourself and your family 3 times a day, you are very good.
Many people out there are ALREADY facing that REALITY of lack of livelihood and are not sure where the next meal is coming from.
If you are moved to help, please open the campaign link (https://fundanenterprise.org/campaigns/covid-19-support-for-distressed-persons/) and donate. You can donate by clicking the ‘donate’ button on the page and following the prompts thereafter.
You will also see the list of the applications (updated continuously with incoming applications, donations received and pay outs already made) via the provided link on the campaign page.
If you wish to donate directly to the applicants via their provided bank accounts, you are free to do so. But please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to notify us afterwards, so we can update the reports.
We would appreciate very much if you also help us share this message to your contacts so they can support the cause too.
Isaiah 58 and the kind of fasting the Lord requires of us all, says it all. We cannot say more.
God bless you abundantly.
