As we engage in creative ways to advance the mission of LEI, we wanted to make you aware that many of our partners are struggling financially in this season of social distancing.  A co-worker from Malawi reported, “My family mainly depends on the school we run for a living… schools are currently closed… This means we have lost almost 80% of our income. We would appreciate any donation to meet our basic needs like food, water bills, etc…”  From Kenya, “every ordinary citizen is feeling it.”  From DR Congo, we “face challenges to host, feed and support” literacy teachers and students.  From Benin, West Africa, “To alleviate… financial distress as teachers, could LEI give for food relief?”  

We are also needing funds to help in Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America.

Due to this unprecedented season, the Board of Trustees has unanimously agreed to establish a COVID Relief Fund.  Please consider a one-time gift to help relieve the financial stress of LEI partners globally.  May God richly bless you for your faithfulness and generosity.
