Global Health Ministries highlighted a great need for Hospice Kits in their last newsletter. These kits help women and children from around the world who are suffering from end-stage symptoms of HIV/AIDS. The kits can provide cleanliness, comfort and hope. As you shop for supplies, offer prayers for the visitation teams and medical professionals as they are for these children of God.
- No sewing is needed.
- Gather all or some of the supplies.
- Watch for a date in July’s Faith Matters — we’ll get together to assemble.
- Local dentists will be contacted for toothpaste and toothbrushes.
