4TH ANNUAL FUNDRAISER was a huge and beautiful success!!
**And a special thank you to Meadowlark Elementary School in Winston-Salem, NC !!
Meadowlark students are true humanitarians. They donated money by doing "Chores for Charity" .
They are very hard workers, because the money they earned and donated will bring not only a dozen new water purification tanks to the surrounding villages, but also create an entirely new education model for the local orphanage. And these are kids ages 5-10!! Incredible!
***TREMENDOUS GRATITUDE TO THE BROOKBERRY FARM COMMUNITY, WHICH HAS CONSISTENTLY SUPPORTED US SINCE 2011. THEY COURAGEOUSLY TOOK ON THE DEADLY CHOLERA DISEASE WITH THE WATER PURIFICATION TANKS PROJECT AND BEAT THIS DISEASE FOR THE ENTIRE REGION! NO MORE CHOLERA FOR ALL OF RANQUITTE SINCE APRIL 2012. WE CONTINUE TO EPAND OUTWARD FROM THE CORE COMMUNITY WITH THESE PURIFICATION TANKS.
NOW THEY ARE SETTING THEIR SIGHTS ON TUITION SCHOLARSHIPS FOR PROMISING STUDENTS FROM THE RANQUITTE COMMUNITY. EDUCATION CHANGES EVERYTHING FOR AN INDIVIDUAL, A FAMILY, AND A COMMUNITY. BROOKBERRY FARM IS A COMMUNITY WITH SOUND PRIORITIES!
FOR THIS REMARKABLE COMMMITMENT WE CALL THEM THE BROOKBERRY LIFESAVERS.
