Coming Soon!!!

We have all been affected by the Covid 19 pandemic including Faith and the FOF children in Zambia. As the virus caused Faith’s trip to Canada to be cancelled, we have recorded an video interview with her so that she can give us a first hand account of the conditions in Zambia and how the children and Centres have been affected. The video will be posted here in about one weeks time, so stay tuned.

Skills Training Centre Re-Opens

As mentioned in an earlier update, it was expected that on June 1st students, including our college students and those attending the Skills Training Centre, would return to classes. As in Canada, frequent hand washing and the wearing of face masks are required measures in Zambia to prevent the spread of the Covid virus.

While the Covid 19 virus is causing major disruptions throughout the world, we are grateful that it has not had a major impact on the FOF children, students and adults at the FOF Centres.

With the cancellation of Faith’s visit to Canada this year, she and her team in Zambia especially want to convey their thanks for your support through this challenging period. Your prayers and contributions are making a difference in the lives of these children and giving them a chance for a much brighter future. Thank you!

COVID-19 Update

During this pandemic, we have had regular reports from Faith related to the spread of Covid-19 in Zambia. The country’s latest figures show there have been a total 1051 cases, with 743 recoveries and 7 deaths.

Faith and her team reacted very quickly to the threat by providing the necessary guidance to the Centres for protecting the children and adults from contracting the virus. As a result, we can be very grateful to God that at this time, the FOF Centres have been spared from this infectious disease.

We will keep a close eye on further developments as many students in Zambia are scheduled to restart classes on June 1.
