ACROSS THE CONTINENT OF AFRICA

 

We know that there is much taking place in the world today, and most news is seldom good.  We endeavor to keep our readers informed of actual events that are news worthy.  In many cases we hope that the news reported will enable our readers to give spiritual, moral and financial support in time or crisis as well as expansion and growth in the community and rural areas.  It takes many helping hands to build a village, but only a few to destroy it.

Many Church and Community Leaders are requesting Apostle Loretta Williams, Editor of Oasis World Wide News Publication, to come to their conferences, crusades and workshops.  These men and women of God are seeking a new direction that will propel their ministries into the 21st century and bring change within their communities, so that the church will actively engage in having remedies and economic resolutions for hunger, starvation, poverty, debt and lack that afflict the people of this nation.

 

Apostle Williams states, “Oasis goal isn’t to give the people of Africa a hand-out, but assist them, until they are able to stand together and gather for themselves the vast resources that are available within their own continent and globally.”

 

Leaders are now recognizing that Unity bring forth Power, and that Power can be utilized through Agreement and Covenant with those who are stronger and have the wisdom to teach individuals how to possess the land in which God has given to them. 

 

"My people perish for the lack of knowledge, because thou hast rejected knowledge: I will also reject thee . . ." Hosea 4:6 KJV

Understanding the famine in Africa.

You may have heard about the drought, famine and mass exodus of refugees in the Horn of Africa, but haven’t quite grasped what is important to know about the crisis or how you can help.  Here is a quick summary if you are new to the situation.

     1.       The geography:  The Horn of Africa is the region that includes the countries of Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, and DjiboutiKenya has been greatly affected by the drought as well and is considered part of East Africa.

     2.       The drought: Over the past two years, rainfall levels have been extremely low resulting in crops failing and cattle dying throughout the  region.  The droughts effect is devastating and in Somalia, political issues have hindered relief efforts as well.

     3.       The UN: The World Food Programme (WFP) is the United Nations’ branch for fighting hunger.  It is the largest humanitarian organization in the world dedicated to solving hunger issues.  The WFP’s Food Security Assessment Unit has declared a “famine” in five areas of Somalia.  This designation is based on three criteria:  the number of people dying from hunger (2 for every 10,000 population per day), at least 20 percent of the population has extremely limited access to basic food and 30% of the population shows signs of malnutrition.

4.       The civil war in SomaliaHindering the relief efforts in Somalia is a long standing civil war.  Al-Shabaab is a militant Islamic force trying to gain control of the country.  They have taken over large parts of Southern and Central Somalia, as well as parts of the capital city, Mogadishu.  They consider themselves waging jihad on the “enemies of Islam” and where they have won control they have enforced Sharia law.  They distrust all humanitarian organizations and have killed 14 aid workers from the WFP since 2008.  The war has made relief efforts difficult in central Somalia and impossible in Southern areas of the country.

     5.       The refugees and refugee camps: Because of the famine and civil war thousands of Somalis have taken refuge by walking to neighboring countries.  It is estimated that 300 refugees arrive in Ethiopia per day and 1300 walk to refugee camps in Kenya each day.  In Kenya, 25% of the new arrivals are malnourished children.  Refugee camps near Dadaab in Kenya and Dollo Ado in Ethiopia are receiving the most refugees and world-wide attention.

6.       The surrounding countries:  While not receiving the designation of experiencing a “famine”, the situations in Kenya and Ethiopia are comparably desperate.  In Kenya, an estimated 1.2 million people are at the “emergency” level (one step away from the “famine” designation) and are unable to meet basic needs.  Another two million Kenyans, mostly cattle and agricultural farmers, are in crisis.  In Ethiopia, the south and southeastern parts of the country faced two consecutive seasons of very poor rains. The drought is said to be the worst since 1950 and it is estimated that 4.8 million Ethiopians are in need of assistance.

     7.       The churches: For me, the leader of an organization dedicated to helping indigenous churches minister to the extreme poor, it is important to know what churches are doing during a crisis situation.  Here is a brief overview of the evangelical church in these countries.

  • Somalia:  The church was forced underground in 1991 when the government was overturned by rebels.  Somali Christians continue to be persecuted and even martyred.   Most Christians have fled the country or meet in secret.   This fact makes estimating the number of Christians difficult but some would estimate the number of Christian believers at around 4000.  Finn Church Aid is the only known Christian organization currently doing relief efforts in Somalia.
  • EthiopiaNorth Ethiopia was one of the first Christian nations, back in the 4th century.  However a Marxist regime took power in 1974 and began persecuting Christians and destroying churches until it was overthrown in 1991.  Today the number of evangelical Christians in Ethiopia has grown to over 20% of the population.  Several Christian agencies are currently working in Ethiopia including SIM and Christian Aid (UK based).
  •  KenyaKenya has a large percentage of nominal Christians, nearly 50% of the population.  However, only 7% attend church, thus few Christians are devoted or discipled.  There are many relief and development agencies in Kenya because of its stable government and central location.  Below are a few Christian agencies involved in helping the relief situation from Kenya.  This is not an exhaustive list, so please feel free to add the names and websites of other accredited agencies in the comments section.
