WHY + HOW
Art for the Heart of Africa has raised almost $400,000 in the past 9 years. These funds were used to provide running water and solar electricity, buy a dump truck, build and supply a children’s medical clinic, build a kitchen, dining hall, dormitories, and a school, as well as starting two farms and pay for the children's education. In the fall of 2016, due to civil war in South Sudan, the children made a new life in a refugee camp in Uganda. With recent funds from Art for the Heart of Africa, we were able to provide these basic necessities yet again.
Art for the Heart of Africa will be held at The Vineyard Church at 16219 Jackson Road, Mishawaka, near the US 20 bypass (directions). For more information about this event or to make a gift-in-kind donation or a financial gift to help underwrite the cost of the event, please e-mail Kathy Smarrella.
Why we're doing this:
The Vineyard Church started working in Yei, South Sudan the fall of 2008 with Pastor Stanley
How we're doing this:
Were it not for the generosity of our amazing sponsors and donors, Art for the Heart of Africa would not be possible. Their sponsorship funds and in-kind donations cover the cost of expenses related to hosting the benefit and making it possible for 100% of the money coming in on the night of the benefit to go directly to the Dreamland children in Uganda. We encourage you to thank them personally by supporting these organizations when possible.
