Share the Plate
The recipient for March will be the Convergence Resource Center of Milwaukee's Human and Sex Trafficking Support Initiative.
In February, UCN shares the plate with Friends of Ngong Road. The mission of Friends of Ngong Road is to provide support and education for children in Nairobi, Kenya, whose families have been affected by poverty and HIV / AIDS.
UCN has had a longstanding relationship with Friends of Ngong Road. Since 2008, the congregation has sponsored a little girl named Veronicah Chemwitch. This is due to the efforts and personal involvement of Vicki Fuerstenau, who introduced the congregation to the program. Through UCN's sponsorship of Veronicah, funds contributed have paid her school expenses, such as her school uniform and shoes, as well as her medical expenses and meals.
To learn more about Friends of Ngong Road, as well as to read more stories about children like Veronicah who are helped by the program, please visit www.ngongroad.org.
