GPM Helping Feed the Hungry in a Refugee Camp

mokfeeding_cover
God continues to work through GPM in the Mokgoba refugee camp in South Africa. The squalid camp has many refugees and destitute from Zimbabwe, as well as orphans and impoverished South Africans. GPM’s church in the camp, pastored by Peter Matlapu, has a feeding program that feeds 28 orphans daily after school and helps other destitute, including sharing the gospel.

Some touching stories of those fed include the two girls pictured above on the right, who are sisters. They are orphans and are staying with their aunt in the camp. Before, these precious girls would spend the whole week with hardly any food – they were only fed at school at 10 am. Then, they would sleep with an empty stomach until the next day when they went back to school. Now, they receive another meal each day after school at Pastor Peter’s house.

Pictured above is a young man named Frans. His mom was working at a company for more than five years until she got sick and lost her job. Frans has three sisters and they have not had food since their mother stopped working. Pastor Peter was able to give Frans and his family over 50 lbs of corn meal, which is the local staple food. Peter committed to give Frans this corn meal every month until his mother gets a job again.

Many hungry refugees from Zimbabwe, which has 90% unemployment, continue to pore into the camp. These are also being helped by Peter’s feeding program. In addition, during the recent Women’s Day holiday in South Africa, Peter was able to help 20 destitute women in the camp with food and blankets (see picture below) – which are vital as winter is coming on in South Africa.

We are so proud of Pastor Peter and the work that he is doing in the refugee camp. The need is great there – please pray that God provide so that GPM can help more of these desperate, precious people. Thank you so much.
