Margaret Mukaisi is a 45 year old single mother of five girls (one of which is married) was abandoned by her husband and lives Kawangare (slum area in Nairobi), where she does some gardening and grows some vegetation to support her family. Unfortunately it is not enough to support her girls, as well as send them to school; especially having bad health due to her very stressful life. In desperation she sometimes borrows money from her married daughter; who also has 2 children with her own restraints.
If you are interested to help people in need like Margaret. Please email us your interest. Your donation as little as $35 or $50 a month, equivalent or less than a night out to town, would help put food on their table.
More than 15 million people are affected by Pakistan’s worst flooding in 80 years, with at least 1,600 fatalities, according to estimates from the government of Pakistan. While the severity of their needs has not yet been fully assessed, the number is greater than those who were affected by the 2005 South Asia tsunami (5 million), the 2005 South Asia earthquake (3 million), or the 2010 Haiti earthquake (3 million). The estimate of 290,000 homes destroyed or seriously damaged is almost the same as those destroyed in Haiti. Below are organizations that are working on relief and recovery in the region.
Please help us donate a generous sum of funds to help these devasted people in need!
This is just to inform everyone that our nonprofit: Give the Needy (http://www.givetheneedy.org/) appreciates your generous support to help families in need.
We are in the process of some fundraising activities and will update you once we have the details in the next month. Please let us know if you would like to participate?
In the mean time we would like to share some letters of appreciation from the families we support. These letters help to reassure you where your contributions are going, to help deserving families in need of food and shelter: http://givetheneedy.org/letters_of_appreciation.html They are letters in PDF format. Please don’t be afraid to open them.
I hope you will continue to help support and donate on a monthly basis, as little as $10 a month which would add up in abundance. If everyone participated then we can help other families who are waiting to be supported or sponsored by you.
There is no greater satisfaction than a prayer and gratefulness of a desperate family; for putting food on their empty table! http://givetheneedy.org/donate.html
May God bless all of you for helping us make a small difference, to a fraction of people in need! We look forward to your feedback.
Single mothers waiting to be supported/sponsored…
We presently have several families waiting to be supported. We are in the process of screening and listing them online. One family which we screened is listed below from Kenya.
Janet Muhavi is a 32 year old widow/single mother of three children. The oldest child is not living with her as it is too expensive to look after and keep three children in a big city like Nairobi, so her older daughter is living with her relatives up country in her village. She has a responsibility to look after two of her children with no fixed job or income. She asks and waits for people to give her work for a day or however long they can use her help; with which she earns very little to help her situation. Most of the time it is just enough to feed one person; let alone three mouths to feed. Janet is living in slum area which is quite far from Nairobi it is called Kibera.
If you are interested to help support Janet for as little as $35 to $55 a month (equivalent or less than a night out to town), please email us your interest to support her for a year. This would help cover her costs to feed her family. We will send updates on her family and give you access to her, if you want to help her further.

The best gifts your kids can give is to show you they’ve learnt the lessons you have taught them of kindness and giving. Which is the most important lessons they would learn from you and to pass on to the next generation. How to live life as a compassionate and giving person. Why we’ve got to help those in need; who are not blessed with the advantages we may have.
This Mother’s Day, share back these wonderful life lessons with your mother, with a gift to honor or remember her with the Give the Needy Foundation.
By making a Give the Needy gift in honor of your mother this Mother’s Day, you can show her she’s shared and taught you the best lessons; along with her big generous heart.

Nguyen Van is a 34 year old single mother of two children (10 and 6 years old). She lives in Vinh Long in the southern Vietnam. Her husband abandoned her after she gave birth to her second daughter and never tried to contact her again.
Her job as a part time seasonal farm worker did not cover her expenses to take care of her kids, leave alone send her kids to school. She has no support system and has had a major struggle to survive. Give the Needy Foundation is now supporting her so she can help her family and be able to send her daughters to school; also give them hope for a better future.
We all need to make a difference in the world. Why not enjoy ourselves in the process.
There are several small actions you can take to reach out and impact the lives of families in need. We are trying our best to move to our goal; of improving the living environment for families in developing countries. Much however remains to be done; we need your help with fundraising to help support our cause. Please email us of your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are some families so poor that they can’t afford a meal for a day. There are many homeless children, living on the streets without parents or older siblings to protect them. There are children who are hurt with substance abuse, ignorance, poverty, and hate. How can we reach these children; improve their living condition and give them hope to hold on to.
Charity is giving without any thought of getting something in return. The return is inevitable and is many times over what you have given. That is the law of the universe.
We at “Give the Needy” need your support and generous donations to help one family at a time!

We have a new family we are supporting from Kenya.
A single mother of two children. She lives in “Kwangware” slum in Nairobi. Her employment does not cover her living condition. She barely had enough money to put food on her table; leave alone send her children to school. Give the Needy Foundation is now supporting her so she can help her family and make a difference to lead a better life.
We also need your support for Lynn who is 11 years old and is from Kenya too. She does not have a soft palate. A palate is the roof of the mouth. It separates the oral cavity from the nasal cavity. Due to that she is not able to speak properly and requires speech therapy. She has to go to a speech therapist two or three times a month to help improve her speech. She is a very shy girl who does not want to be looked upon differently or made fun off. We are trying our best to raise enough funds to help this sweet girl. I hope this story will inspire you to help us. So we can help change her life.
