howFar Thankful For Donations For Famine Relief

No Rain Has Eliminated All Grass For Livestock
On this Thanksgiving Day howFar Ministries and The How Far Foundation are tremendously thankful for our supporters who have responded to the call for donations to send relief to our partner villages in East Africa. Although the worst reports of suffering are coming out of Sudan and Northern Kenya, eastern Kenya and northern Tanzania are also enduring severe drought conditions.

Women Gather And Wait On The Dry Savannah Waiting For Help
To date, howFar has sent nearly 8,000 pounds of maze to two of our hardest hit villages in Tanzania and Kenya.

The Food Distribution Will Feed A Large Family For 3 Weeks
To help feed the hungry in our partner villages in Eastern Africa make your tax deductible donate online or send your donation to;

The How Far Foundation, Inc.
4295 Suwanee Mill Drive
Buford, Georgia 30518

This Thanksgiving Day let us remember those who are not able to feast as we are...but are still thankful for the our Lord's provision.
