Last month, DHI’s Scott Sweat, Susan Sweat and Fred Baerenz met with a NY based investment company and presented a summary of all the wonderful work that DHI has facilitated in Eburru, Kenya.
The meeting was a continuation of a dialogue begun last year at the award ceremony where DHI was honored and Scott was named the Investment News Advisor of the Year for Global Community Outreach. The two principals of the investment company and their families, one Quaker, the other Jewish, have been captivated by the overwhelming need of Eburru, and the holistic approach of Camp Brethren Ministries and David’s Hope to meet that need in a self-sustainable manner.
As a result, they are providing an immediate grant of $50,000! They also have provided us with a “challenge” grant of another $50,000 once David’s Hope matches that amount with new fundraising between now and June 11, 2013.
God is good and He never ceases to amaze us here at DHI. If you have been thinking about giving to David’s Hope this year, will you consider giving before June 11th? Our investment friends will match all funds raised in the next 8 weeks up to $50,000.
