What are you planning to do this long weekend? As Canadians we’ve been counting down the days and then hours until the first long weekend of the summer starts. Things like family trips, BBQs, camping and sleeping in could fill your leisure time or maybe you are part of the 82% of Canadians who think this weekend is the perfect opportunity to tackle some spring chores (taken from a poll done by Canadian Tire, cited on 680 News website, - http://www.660news.com/2013/05/14/canadians-spending-may-long-weekend-doing-spring-chores/). One of the top items on the to-do list for a Canadian is gardening. So, while you’re working in your garden this weekend we encourage you to think of some of ERDO’s gardening and agriculture projects around the world.
ERDO along with our partners has been providing food assistance in West Africa. One area of this work focuses on families who have suffered an 80% loss of crops, the majority of whom are woman-headed households. Families have been given seeds to help with their next harvest along with food to supplement their current needs.
In Uganda, along with the Pentecostal Assemblies of God Uganda (PAGU), ERDO is helping to provide skills, seeds and tools to help target households in crop production. Just like in Canada we are seeing the impact of climate change on our weather patterns; Uganda is quite affected by climate change. ERDO with PAGU is addressing the climate change issues with disaster risk reduction, disaster risk management and adaptation.
Every day over 17,000 children are fed in our in school feeding programs in Zimbabwe. School gardens have been set up at 3 of the 35 schools where these feeding programs are run. These gardens were set up in 2010/11 by ERDO with help from matched funding from the Canadian government for initial seeds, tools and trainers. ERDO has also provided bore wells at each garden. We are teaching conservation farming methods to the parents of the children in the 3 schools with gardens. They can then use these techniques on their own land. This will improve their food security, as they will have more food to eat and can also sell some of the food they are able to grow.
Have a great long weekend! Hope you enjoy some food for thought, pun intended, as you garden. For more information on ERDO’s food assistance programs go to www.erdo.ca/food-assistance
This coming weekend is an exciting weekend for many Canadian teenagers because it’s youth convention weekend. Through upbeat music, dynamic speakers and other events youth will have a great weekend learning more about God. Many conventions have also encouraged teenagers and their youth groups to raise funds to help with ERDO’s water and feeding projects. History Maker Convention in BC is raising funds for water filtration systems in Thailand. This will provide clean water for schools and their surrounding communities.
Overflow Convention, in Western Ontario is raising funds for In School Feeding Programs in Bangladesh. Youth groups around Ontario have committed to sponsor a school to provide for their feeding program for one year. We’re excited to see how many schools will be sponsored. We’ve already heard encouraging news about schools that will be sponsored. There are 109 existing Pre-Primary Schools in 13 districts of Bangladesh that are a part of this program. It is our hope that each of these schools will be sponsored and that 4,110 children between the ages of 4 and 7 years old will receive food assistance.
Children will receive an early morning snack of High Energy Biscuits when they arrive before classes begin and a mid to late morning meal of a Wheat Soya Blend thick porridge. Increasing the children’s access to food 5 days a week at school will play an important role in improving their cognitive development and school attendance. In addition to the 4,110 children, 164 volunteers and 109 teachers will also receive meals on the days they work. This is especially important for the female volunteers who face their own hunger issues due to societal pressures.
We pray for all the teenagers who will attend youth conventions this weekend, may they learn more about our amazing God!
Thank you in advance for helping people in Thailand have access to clean water and for feeding children in Bangladesh. In both programs students are helping students; how cool is that?!
World Malaria Day – April 25
The dark of night also brings the risk of disease in malaria prone areas around the world. ERDO is involved in Malaria prevention through education, water interventions and the provision of mosquito nets.
ERDO is involved in educating communities about Malaria and what they can do to help decrease the risks of contracting the disease. This is a common theme in our multi-year programs.
Since 2009 ERDO has, in partnership with the Life Campaign and through other ERDO funding partners provided over 100 wells, to communities in need. Not only providing access to clean water for drinking, watering of animals and agricultural purposes but also significantly decreasing the issue of standing water (mosquito breeding grounds). Wells / water projects have been provided in Bangladesh, Thailand, Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Guatemala, Ghana, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Senegal and Malawi.
In Malawi, for the past two years, ERDO has provided mosquito nets for all children at ‘Children of Blessing Trust’ a home that works with children with disabilities. Mosquito nets in this area do not last for more than a season because the rats tear holes in them.
Children of Blessing Trust provides rehabilitation services, special education services, Sunday School, nutritional support, specialized equipment, medical treatment and more to children and adults with disabilities. Many of the children who access these services are disabled as a result of suffering from a bout of Cerebral Malaria. This year 375 mosquito nets were provided to many grateful families.
ERDO is also involved in the treatment of Malaria cases through medical clinics in Burkina Faso and Kenya. ERDO also ensures that funds are available to assist ChildCARE Plus program administrators in 28 countries respond to treatment needs of the over 6,750 children sponsored.
In Africa, malaria deaths have been cut by one third within the last decade; outside of Africa, 35 out of the 53 countries, affected by malaria, have reduced cases by 50% in the same time period (reference: World Malaria Day 2013 Website, http://www.worldmalariaday.org/live_detail_en.cfm?id=796). There is more to be done to stop preventable deaths from malaria. You can donate and provide mosquito nets to protect others from Malaria.
“Do good. Seek Justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the Orphan. Plead for the widow” - Isaiah 1:17
This verse is our Biblical call as Christians to ‘do good’ in the world. Here at ERDO this is also our guiding mission statement and as a ChildCARE Plus (CCP) administrator, I am passionate about 'doing good' in our hurting world. As a child sponsor myself, I understand the underlining importance of child sponsorship in giving hope of a brighter future to children. Sponsorship makes a lasting impact not only in an individual child's life but also in their family and the larger community as children become educated and are able to reverse the cycle of poverty in which they are currently engulfed.
In the coming weeks, I will be traveling to Kenya and will have the exciting opportunity to visit my CCP sponsored child, Destiny, and her family in the capital city of Nairobi. This will be my second trip to Kenya in the past three years, a country of beautiful landscapes and people with warm hearts whose genuine hospitality and boundless faith, I have quickly come to love and admire. I am greatly looking forward to visiting the CCP program in Nairobi and seeing how children's lives are being transformed every day through the loving support of ERDO-ChildCARE Plus sponsors. I am so looking forward to meeting sweet little Destiny!

This in-school feeding program is in one of the poorest urban areas in Tegucigalpa, the capital city of Honduras. The residents of the area initially settled here after Hurricane Mitch destroyed their homes in 1998. Families in Buena Vista, Nueva Capital and Mary Flakes de Flores live on two to three dollars per day and unemployment is rampant.
The neighbourhoods here are plagued by gang violence. Few children stay in school long enough to graduate from Grade 6 as they are lured into the gang subculture with offers of food and money. This program seeks to supplement the Government of Honduras’ commitment to providing three months of food annually to impoverished schools by providing seven months of daily feeding. Students will be more equipped to learn without the distraction of hunger and will be able to stay in school.

Last December I had the opportunity to visit Thailand, otherwise known as the land of smiles. On this trip there were many smiles shared; I am grateful for the opportunity I had to meet two of my sponsored children, Nampfon (currently sponsoring) (age 13) and Fung (sponsorship completed) (age 23).
I met Nampfon and her mother in Chiang Mai. Cavell, the ChildCARE Plus (CCP) administrator, kindly did the translation for me and we were able to speak to each other. It was a very happy moment to meet Nampfon personally and learn that she likes to study, especially science. It is her dream to become a nurse. I trust that she will. I sense that she is determined to reach this goal. Together we attended a Christmas celebration at her church. After we said our goodbyes and they had to return home.
Another day, Fung's father, her family and I went to meet Fung about an hour away from the family’s home. She travelled all day, ten hours by bus from Bangkok just to be able to spend one day with us. What a privilege for me to meet her! It was a very special encounter for Fung and her family. I sponsored her for 15 years; I started sponsoring her when she was in grade 2. Now she has finished her university studies and working in a cable vision company in Bangkok.
I was blessed to be with Fung's family for a few days. Their hospitality was remarkable, very friendly, and ready to help. We shared many moments together. Thanks be to God for such a family, who care for others!
The love and care of Fung’s parents, the guidance and assistance of CCP in her education, health and spiritual growth in Christ has prepared her for her future. She is now equipped to face the challenges that life brings along the way. I am confident that the good work which started in her heart by God will continue, so that others may also be blessed.
Meeting my sponsored children and their CCP administrator was a wonderful experience. I have enjoyed it and learnt from them. Their smiles, kindness, gentle spirit and their simplicity of life have struck me profoundly. Because of this labor of love from Cavell and her team of CCP, these children will have a better future.

Mama Sifa is a woman from our newest lending post, through Wezesha Project (Congo Microfinance) Nyawera, in the city of Bukavu. She was among the first 30 borrowers to receive a loan to expand her business. In this picture she had just received her first loan of $50USD. Overnight it made a huge impact because her entire business consisted of only $15USD of investment.
Since receiving her loan she’s made her payments every week on-time and is looking forward to her next loan of $100USD, which she will receive at the beginning of May. Wezesha Project is empowering women like Mama Sifa to help their own families through these loans. To read more about Wezesha Project go to www.erdo.ca/microfinance-wezesha
A few days ago, I received a retailer’s e-mail solicitation with the subject-line: “You deserve some Easter savings”. Before I put it in the garbage I thought about the implications of those five little words.
If I was to truly believe that a new set of “Easter pots and pans” was my highlight of Easter, at least until the next sale, my soul would be empty approaching this most Holy week.
Instead, I know my Saviour lives, and He does know my name. That message fills my soul. He also knows the names of all of the people who are serving in overseas communities as Global Workers and ERDO program partners. You can read those names and pray for our partners: www.erdo.ca/partners
As we remember Jesus’ crucifixion on Good Friday, and celebrate his resurrection on Easter Sunday, be sure to remember the central message here: “God so loved the world that he gave His only son” and as we look toward him and that love, we know he died for our sins and are drawn into eternal life. Now all of us are looked at and known in love by the Father. Now that’s definitely a message to flag, celebrate and keep at the top of your in-box.

We've reached a milestone for Wezesha Project - ERDO's Microfinance program in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). We are now sustainable. This means that we are able to cover all of our local operating expenses, which includes local salaries, office rent, transportation, and communication. The interest that we collect is now able to pay all of the costs; every dollar that is put into the project remains in the project. This major milestone separates us from many other initiatives.
This milestone means that new donations will provide more loans to women in need. We anticipate further growth of this project. If you’re interested in helping to provide a loan for a woman in DRC go to www.erdo.ca/microfinance-wezesha and click on the donate button.
Wezesha Project started in January 2011 in Bukavu, Congo which is located in the eastern part of Congo. In Swahili, ‘wezesha’ means ‘empower’ and this is where it gets its name. We empower women to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. We provide loans starting at $50 to enable women to use skills they already possess to expand their businesses and better support their families. To date, Wezesha Project has provided $373,000.00 USD in microloans to women of Eastern DRC. We have 960 borrowers and have provided almost 2730 loans ranging from $50-$400, with a 99.99% repayment rate. We anticipate further growth of this program into other areas of Congo.

On March 5th 2013 a reception was held to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Staff from the Honorable Julian Fantino, Minister of International Cooperation Minister’s office and from CIDA, Members of Parliament and Foodgrains Bank members, supporters, and staff attended the celebration.
““It speaks volumes” that 40% of the donations for the Canadian government’s 2012 Sahel Crisis Matching Fund came through the 15 churches and church agencies that make up the Foodgrains Bank” says the Honorable Julian Fantino. Noting that the Canadian Foodgrains Bank is Canada’s “primary Canadian partner for international food assistance,” the Minister said that “the Foodgrains Bank’s 30 years of experience shows in its responses to food insecurity and chronic hunger and its strong grassroots relationships with the people who support it.”During the celebration, the delegations offered thanks for Canada’s support for the Foodgrains Bank, and for efforts to reduce hunger and poverty in general, and expressed the hope that Canada would continue to be generous with its foreign aid in the future.We are grateful for our partnership with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB). ERDO was one of its founding members. Congratulations staff of the CFGB on 30 great years! We look forward to many more!
In urban and suburban Canada there are more and more children who have never seen a live horse or cow, and a whole young generation that doesn’t understand just how important livestock and farms are for survival. In the next few weeks, fairs that celebrate livestock will be taking place right across Canada. From the Western Canadian Livestock Expo in Saskatoon to the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair in Brandon Manitoba, and the Ottawa Valley Farm Show, these fairs are an important time for Canadian children to learn about the magnificence of many animals and our deep connection with nature. Emergency Relief & Development Overseas (ERDO) recognizes the connection between people and animals and so operates with our partners in a number of programs to provide education on taking care of animals that serve people - otherwise known as animal husbandry. Educating people on how to take good care of their working animals ensures the animals live longer lives with the proper nutrition and care they need to avoid sickness and suffering. The link between humans and their work animals is a critical one; if the animals that work farms, or carry saleable goods and supplies are kept in good care, the family has a higher likelihood to earn an income and care for their own family.During the East Africa food crisis, people were suffering, but what many people didn’t realize was that the drought and famine had a severe effect on animals too. In Kenya, ERDO led an initiative with our partner Sauti Moja to assist 117 pastoralist widows by providing fodder for their livestock and provided funds to restock lost animals for 68 families. In phase two of the crisis response we assisted another 350 households with livestock. Thanks to the generous donations to ERDO at Christmas time through our “gift catalogue”, we were able to provide 273 goats, 14 donkeys and 5 camels for widowed women. As we celebrate animals and agriculture in Canada this spring, we also give thanks for those people who provided animals and fodder for animals so that families could save their animals from starvation and keep their family’s access to food more secure. *figures as of March 11/13
We live in a culture that believes we can buy protection: from our toothpaste with its tartar-fighting powers to our full protection from the sun through special creams and lotions. We buy warranties, alarm systems and other coverage to feel a sense of security on any given day. Two years ago, families in Japan woke up on a day just like any other and set out to brush their teeth, drive to work, walk to school, and go about their lives just like on an average day. Some might have felt the same sense of familiarity and security that we in Canada do when we think that our lives are well protected by all the things we have done. That sense of calm was altered dramatically when an 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck eastern Japan on March 11 2011, and caused a life-changing tsunami. The water, which was a source of income for so many living in the area, was changed into a force of indiscriminate destruction. The once industrious coast was pushed inland, leaving a jumble of cars, homes and bodies. The media this weekend and today are running stories to commemorate this somber anniversary. There are also many reports about the bits and pieces of people’s lives washing up on the shores of British Columbia. Boats, shoes… all of the items of life that didn’t find their way to the ocean floor are finding their resting place along our country’s coastline. They are a haunting memory to not forget those whom the water and destruction took that day. At ERDO, we take this day to remember those who were lost and those who today grieve lost loved ones. We pray for many Japanese people who are alive and suffering from post-traumatic disorders, unemployment, depression and homelessness. We pray that Japanese Christians will continue to deliver the message of a loving God, and come alongside people in need. In this time of reflection, we are so grateful for our partners in Japan who delivered the programs that Canadian funds donated to ERDO enabled: PAOC Global Workers, Assemblies of God-Japan, FHI, Convoy of Hope, Canadian Churches in Action and CRASH (Japanese NGO). Click here for more on ERDO’s response to Japan after the tsunami.
Some young Canadians attending college and university have just returned from reading week, while others are enjoying the last days of their break, with some celebrating in southern climates and others catching up on some of their sleep and studies (and laundry). While some form of post secondary education seems like the norm for young Canadians, in many developing countries there are serious challenges that prevent children from reaching their full potential and achieving their education goals: poverty, illness, civil conflict and natural disasters.Consider that in some of the countries where we work, less than half of the population can read and write. In many of the countries where ERDO serves, education is the key to set a child free from poverty, and is a highly valued gift. At a time of year when our own loved ones are diving into their textbooks and expanding their minds, we’d like to give thanks to all of the people who sponsor children through ChildCARE Plus and help those children to receive an education, and reach their God-given potential.
ERDO's new website launched today after almost two years in the making.
We wanted to create an electronic space where children's stories would come to life so that they could be quickly and easily sponsored. We also wanted to make the breadth and depth of our program work visible, and to tell the stories of those whose lives were transformed. In addition we wanted to build a place where you'd find the resources that you need, and that you'd be happy coming back to.
We welcome your feedback on things that work, things that don't work, and what your overall impression is of the site. Please explore, and tell some friends! With thanks, the ERDO team.
If you’re in any retail store it seems that as soon as November 1st hits the décor and season changes to Christmas. We start to hear Christmas songs and begin making plans to continue our Christmas traditions. As we begin compiling our shopping lists we often find we have friends and family that are difficult to buy for. What if instead of another box of Christmas cake, a festive tie, or the latest electronic gadget you gave a gift through ERDO and were able to bless not only your friends and loved ones, but others in need? The difference that these gifts can make is simply amazing!
Earlier this year, ERDO’s Director of International Programs, Kelvin Honsinger, visited the Marasabit region of Kenya where our partner, Sauti Moja is located. Kelvin reflected on meeting one of the widows who received the gift of a camel:
“I met Lukaiu under a tree with a large group of ladies and children. She was overwhelmed at the thought that she received her camel “from a far person - someone I have never seen in my life”. How humbling for me when she said, looking in my eyes, “I have prayed that I would meet that person and now I have! Thank you. Thanks to God. Thanks to those who have cared.” She also said, “Before I had to go and gather firewood to sell so I could buy some milk. Now I sell the milk from my camel and buy the firewood that I need. This milk is food and medicine because it is so nutritious.” The gift of a donkey, camel or goat changes the lives of the widowed women in ways we cannot imagine. They now have the time and opportunity to cultivate small gardens to grow their own food. A donkey allows them to haul water for irrigation, and the hardy camel has even been used to plow fields. They are able to spend more time with their children, and both mothers and children benefit from the release from grinding labour with little reward. Life is still difficult, but now there is hope.
So maybe your Christmas gifts will look a little different this year: gifts like goats, donkeys and camels. What an amazing impact these animals could have for families in need!
Thanksgiving always brings about a time of reflection. Here at ERDO we have lots to be thankful for.
Here are a few things we’re thankful for:
We’ve only mentioned a few ways that you have helped us to make a difference; there are surely many more. Thank you for all you have done in the lives of children and families through your generosity!
We’re so excited about a new idea to continue to raise awareness for the issue of Global Hunger. It’s called "A Recipe for Ending Global Hunger." Churches and individuals accross Canada can fill out the recipe cards, like the one pictured here, and send them on to Prime Minister Harper. We’d like to encourage our prime minister and other international development decision-makers in Ottawa to keep global hunger in the federal government agenda.
So far we’ve had 50 churches across Canada request cards, representing a total of 6,325 cards that could be sent to the government and we are still receiving orders! ERDO represents just one of the fifteen organizations that make up the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, who are a part of this campaign. So if every organization is able to see a similar response that already equals a lot of cards that will be on their way to the Prime Minister’s office!
Want to join us? There’s no deadline on this campaign. Send an e-mail to email@example.com to request your recipe cards and let us know how many you’d like. You can also check out our Youtube channel to watch a video about this campaign.
In early August a Typhoon hit the city of Manila in the Philippines leaving many families along with their children homeless. We were able to respond to the devastating needs for 600 families. These families received urgently needed supplies, emotional and spiritual support through global worker Marilyn Curtis.
Some of the supplies that were provided were water containers, rice, fresh food, powdered milk, canned food, baby formula and basic medicines. Families also each received a mosquito net which will protect them from the increased risk of malaria carrying mosquitos.
Marilyn wrote on Facebook in late August, “Thanks ERDO for responding to the overwhelming need in the Philippines, after the devastating floods and monsoon rains let much destruction and pain in its path! You responded to the "poorest of the poor"! You not only responded with food & medical relief but also spiritual relief!”
ERDO will continue to be involved with organized feeding programs for people in Manila.
For most Canadian children there is no real danger awaiting them in the dark. For children living in malaria zones, the dark can bring real fear in the form of malaria-carrying mosquitos who bite during the night.
With 86% of all malaria deaths occurring in children under the age of five, ERDO is focused on doing something to protect these young lives by providing mosquito nets. In the past three years mosquito nets went to Senegal, Burkina Faso and Malawi.
This summer along with MAK (Missions & Kids) of the PAOC, children are raising funds for mosquito nets. This is a practical way that children in Canada are making a difference around the world.
ERDO is also involved in the area of educating communities about Malaria and what they can do to help decrease the risks of contracting the disease. This is a common theme in our multi-year programs.
In Zimbabwe, 24,000 primary school age children involved in ERDO in-school feeding programs receive instruction about basic hygiene, diet and prevention of malaria and other diseases on a regular basis. Much of this work is done in partnership with municipal health officers and through strong partnerships with Medicines Sans Frontiers and other health based partners.
In July 2011, following a prolonged drought, the United Nations declared a state of Famine in Somalia. Though now declared "famine free", Somalia and other countries that form the Horn of Africa are still facing serious food security issues in the coming months.
In fact, the US Agency for International Development's Famine and Early Warning Systems Network warned in an April 3rd report that due to less rain than previously forecast, the size of the food insecure population is expected to increase.
ERDO is working through Canadian Churches in Action, and through our on-the ground Global Worker, Marilyn Curtis, to respond to children and their families affected by the recent floods in the Philippines.
Typhoon Washi, known locally as Sendong, wreaked havoc in the Philippines in December 2011, battering the coast around Cagayan de Oro, Iligan and Bukidnon.
Exact numbers of the people affected are difficult to confirm. Approximately 1,300 houses were destroyed and around 3,000 more damaged. An estimated 45,000 people - including 14,000 children - are being cared for in 48 evacuation centres. A further 43,000 people are being helped outside the centres because there is no space left within. An estimated 800 people are unaccounted for, although exact numbers are difficult to come by.
ERDO's response to help victims of the typhoon included clean drinking water, anti malarial drugs, tarpaulins and blankets. Our response working through Marilyn Curtis helped bring relief to 1,000 people.
Marilyn Curtis reflected on the people that she met during her relief efforts and told us this heartbreaking story:
"One lady shared with me of how she with her husband and six children were asleep, when the mud hit their house, she was swept up a tree and able to hang on. Suddenly she felt "something" touch her legs she reached out and grabbed it.. it was a baby, she held on to the baby not knowing whose baby it was, she knew that all her family was swept away by the fast flowing mud. When daylight broke, still clinging to the child, she had realized it was her own baby she had saved, she said, she had thought of letting the baby go several times during the night, thinking she had lost all her family! When I met her, she was holding on to that precious child so very tightly not allowing anyone to hold it. We sat and wept together."
In times of emergency, relief supplies can include things like:
This is the flood that never ends. Raining when it should have been sunny, our summer hot season was the soggiest on memory. Flooding began in the North two months ago, and the water run-off of endless tropical storms has accumulated in the Central Plains, pushing south through the only exit it has–Bangkok. How much water? Imagine a lake 75% the size of Lake Ontario draining through your home town.
For our family so far it’s been an inconvenience. We prepared our home for flooding and stored precious photographs; our three kids are at home since school is closed for at least three weeks (or so they say); we’ve stocked up on basic food and supplies, but still we are not wet. For hundreds of our church members this is not the case. For millions of other Thai, they are out of home, without work and faced with the task of rebuilding once water is completely drained in December. Countless homes with their contents are under water. We’ve listened to stories from Pastors of flooded churches in Central Thailand and Greater Bangkok. All were under water. Church members either survive by living on the second floor of their home while waiting for help or are relocated to other provinces to wait. Lots of water means no work. No work means no food.
Lots of water also means not enough water–drinking water that is. The primary needs here right now is lack of clean, drinkable water, food and boats to get these valuable necessities to stranded people. Fortunately, we can help some. Our experience over the last three years with providing clean water means that Imagine Thailand is now installing water stations at over 22 church locations in Greater Bangkok. The systems can use the city water sources, clean the water and community members can take it away in plastic bags.
Thank you for your support and prayers. Peter and Cavelle Dove (workers with ERDO, Imagine Thailand and the larger team of workers in Thailand.)
