Support Africa Family Rescue

Your support is vital to the welfare of the precious African families that we have come to know and love. We understand that you have expenses and responsibilities of your own. God’s provision is different for each of us and we all have a different capacity for giving to those in need. Whatever you can give to support these families who desperately need help would be a blessing! Below are some suggested ways you can make a huge difference in the lives of these families. You can always give to the general fund if one of these options will not work for you. Any donation is much needed and appreciated. Thank you for partnering with us in ministering to “The least of these”.

Pahlow Support

Sometimes we need to ask the question, who will help the people, who are helping the poorest of the poor? Partner with the Pahlow family monthly as they trust God for provision while they serve as leaders of this ministry. The Pahlow’s desire is to raise their own monthly support so that your donations meant for widows and orphans go directly to Africa.

African Family Support

Does helping hurt? Sometimes. Sometimes it hurts to NOT help. The families we have identified are much like the man left for dead of the famous Bible story of the Good Samaritan, and passed by many “good people”. They are flat on their backs, in the ditch, with no hope anywhere to be found. We believe, just like the Good Samaritan, to help them back on their feet, walk with them, share our money with them, and help them become self-sufficient. That is what monthly sponsoring a family of a widow or orphan will do…bring self-sufficiency!

I’m the owner of DTX Media, a video production company and photography firm in Dallas, Texas USA. I’ve had the privilege of shooting for the needs of Paramount pictures, Fox, Nat Geo, Discovery, NBC, CBS and etc, but I can’t imagine a greater need than this.

I am the Student Pastor for Grace Community Church. I have a lovely bride and two great kiddos.

Family Sponsorship:

Sponsoring a family is an incredible opportunity to personally be involved in lifting a family out of extreme poverty and putting them on a path of self-sufficiency. This is a 3 year commitment and is a $70.00 tax deductible donation a month. This model was also developed by Africans for Africans. Most families are making less than $0.16 per day before they are sponsored. To become a family sponsorship partner contact Melody Pahlow at melody@africafamilyrescue.org to receive your family today!

Here is how your donation impacts families each year:

 

YEAR ONE

Selected families are so poor that many do not have food up to 3-4 days at a time, have almost no clothing, no mosquito nets, no cooking pots, no bedding, and most of the family has health care issues including malaria or AIDS.  With this in mind, during year one, we use the sponsorship to focus on food, clothing, household items, and health.  The family is trained twice a month by an AFR case worker to budget their new assistance based on the 80/20 principle which guides the family to live on 80% of their sponsorship, give 10% away, and save 10%.  As a family sponsor you are like the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:34-35 who picks up one dying man from the ground, takes him to the doctor and walks with him until he is sure that he is on his feet again.

YEAR TWO

During the second year of sponsorship, the family is encouraged by their AFR case worker to put the children in school, make any urgent shelter repairs, purchase livestock, and begin planting their crops.  Most of our families have been so poor that they have sold themselves as slaves, working for neighbors digging and farming.  During the second year we partner with experts on rural farming and livestock breeding to allow the families to have the most success possible.

YEAR THREE

During the third year of sponsorship the focus becomes establishment of micro business for self-sufficiency. Throughout the entire 3 year process, families are told that the sponsorship will end in 36 months, and that their goal is to replace the monthly sponsorship money with their own business profits. During this last 12 months a family works diligently on utilizing savings to move into self employment.  Some of the micro business ventures are bike taxis, agricultural sales, construction, barber, livestock sales, weaving, etc.  One widow in Rwanda started with 2 bee hives, and by the end of her sponsorship she had 88 bee hives, earning herself the title “Queen Bee” in her community!
