Honoring Mothers in the Trash Dump

Not too many of us could imagine a life without celebration. Even if we miss a few each year, our lives are filled with all kinds of celebrations.

- Birthdays
- Christmas
- Thanksgiving
- Valentines Day
- 4th of July

For many of the families that surround the trash dump community, the years pass by with very little to celebrate. Since AFE's inception, the goal of it's leader has always been to offer a holistic approach to ministry. This simply means that AFE attempts to reach these children and their families in every aspect of their lives.

That includes celebrations.

This year will be the 5th year that AFE will have the opportunity to offer a celebration for the MOTHERS IN THE TRASH DUMP. Each year, AFE dedicates and puts aside one day in order to honor these mothers with a nice lunch and gift baskets. For the past 5 years, there has been a team from the United States that has come to provide the funds for the lunch, but we are looking for people willing to donate funds to help us purchase the GIFT BASKETS.

We are looking to create 50 baskets this year and each basket will cost around $16. If you or anybody you know might be interested in helping, please click here to visit AFE's website and make a donation. If you decide to give towards this event, please make your donation under "Special Projects" and designate the funds for "Mother´s Day".
