IN TIMES OF CRISIS, FRIENDS LEND A HELPING HAND
In 2020, many of you responded almost immediately to our requests to help Oasis partners across Africa who were furloughed without pay, or with drastic income reduction, due to the effects of the COVID19 pandemic.
In an amazingly short amount of time we raised over $6,000 in June 2020, which provided food and essential goods for our partners and their families to get them through the crisis. By November 2020, we received more donations and an additional $10,500 was distributed to even more partners in Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, South Africa, and Kenya.
"[Thank you] so much for the Pandemic Relief of USD 500 which we received.
It went along way in buying food stuffs.
The staff were very happy, thankful and prayed for Oasis and your Team.
We are told that during happier moments one has a lot of friends but during difficult
and trying moments one gets to know his true and real friends.
And for us Oasis is not just a business partner but a true friend." –Staff of Keswick Books and Gifts Ltd, Kenya
"Your care and help are proof of how the Lord takes care of his children. It is such a priviledge to know that we are part of a much bigger picture and much bigger team." –Marlene Abrie, WordSpread Foundation, South Africa
"We received the Covid relief funds with appreciation. We used the funds in supporting the staff by purchasing Christmas vouchers for them. The staff were very happy for the fund." –Ufungamano House, Kenya
Thank you for your courageous generosity during these uncertain times. The work and effectiveness of Oasis is contingent on these partnerships and we are grateful that they are back to the work of distributing Bibles and discipleship resources to equip the Church.
