The Global Outreach at Nativity “Days for Girls” Team is planning an event at Nativity to make Days for Girls kits for Madagascar. Why Madagascar? Nativity has two members, Julie Bonde and Lorna Larson, who lived in Madagascar in their early years as part of their missionary families. Madagascar has suffered a number of natural disasters in the past 24 months in addition to the challenges of the pandemic. Madagascar has a Lutheran Hospital that is supported by Lutheran organizations such as Global Health Ministries.
The goal is to provide 50 Days for Girls kits, donate $500 for shipping costs and provide 50 hours of volunteer time to help Global Health Ministries pack medical items and load a container of supplies that will be sent to Madagascar in May, 2022. We’ll be gathering for a work session on Monday, May 9, from 6:30-8:30 in the Fellowship Hall to make Days for Girls Kits. All volunteers, including those who like to sew, are welcome. Food and beverages will be provided. Please contact Nancy Laible at firstname.lastname@example.org to register or for more information.
