About West Mains Church Of Christ Supported Projects
Unfortunately, Food Banks have become an increasingly needed resource in our communities. The West Mains Congregation currently supply essential groceries to 6 families in the East Kilbride area. Many more families need help in the community. If you would like to be a part of this project; no matter how little you can help it all adds up to helping those who need it the most.
The first day of this program was in May 2008 and was a great success. The main aim was to ensure that children receive a meal every day and the quality of food was increased. This scheme has survived on generousity from Church of Christ, Benoni, South Africa and Church of Christ, West Mains, Scotland.
One of the main needs was a kitchen, a container was bought and fitted with a sink, a fridge and a stove to allow the feeding of the children. It started in Mayfield section 12, Davyton, South Africa and began feeding 41 children, now there can be upto 200 children attending and some of the children walk 3 miles to be fed. The program is now looking to raise enough funds to build a permanent building that will allow the children to eat inside and also give the children an opportunity to gather together and worship God.
If you would like to help us with this project, every penny helps
