A Small Church with a Big Heart

David H. Albert
On Home (September 2017)

Dear Friends: Klamath Falls (Oregon) Friends Church is a big supporter of Friendly Water for the World. Beginning in 2015, they have been supporting three community groups who have ensured clean water for some 60,000 people and have become entirely self-sufficient in the process. The three groups are now among the largest philanthropists in eastern Rwanda, providing food for the hungry, health insurance, shoes, and books for children entering school. The members of the three groups work four days a week on clean water efforts; on the fifth day they work in sewing and in traditional crafts, such as basket weaving.

Klamath Falls is a small Friends Church, with approximately twenty attenders on a typical First Day. They would love to hear from other Friends meetings and churches who would like to join them in their efforts to ensure clean water to poor communities around the globe. contact: [email protected]
