Rise Against Hunger

Annual Church-Wide Meal Packaging Event

Rise Against Hunger is an organization, which gets food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable people, and works to end global hunger in our lifetime. Established in 1998, Rise Against Hunger has provided over 374 million meals in 74 countries. Rise Against Hunger is based in Raleigh, N.C., and operates throughout the U.S. and through affiliates in developing countries. Visit www.riseagainsthunger.org for more information.

Every day 30,000 people die of starvation. That is 1,250 people per hour, one person every 3 seconds. In 2010 Church Of The Servant partnered with Rise Against Hunger in the mission of ending global hunger! Members and friends of Servant have packaged 1,319,824 meals since then.

Rise Against Hunger has become a part of who we are at Church of the Servant. For many of us, it is our most favorite Sunday of the year. It is impacting and shaping our world, our church and our families in ways we could not have foreseen.

Our next Church-Wide Meal Packaging Event is on hold due to COVID-19.

We are always accepting tax-deductible donations for our next event. If you would like to make a donation today, please click on the MAKE A DONATION button below.

Kenya mission

"Update on Kenya" by Ann Knutson, Kenya Team Coordinator

We truly hoped that we could return to Kenya in early 2022, as of this writing (November 2021), only 1.6% of Kenyans have been vaccinated. While the hospital in Maua requires that all volunteer teams are fully vaccinated, we could be asymptomatic and inadvertently pass COVID on to a Kenyan. And conversely, there is a chance of a breakthrough case in a team member which would require a quarantine in Kenya. Therefore, we made the difficult decision to cancel the February dates we had reserved. We hope that we might be able to go in the summer of 2022.

Dr. Jon Fielder, co-founder of African Mission Healthcare, recently spoke via Zoom from Nairobi to the OU Infectious Disease department. He gave a fascinating talk about some possible reasons why COVID has not affected as many people in most parts of Africa as had been feared. His presentation is very easy to understand and I hope you take a few minutes to listen to it. Maua Methodist Hospital has an ongoing relationship with AMH. For information about Kenya, please contact Ann Knutson at annknut@gmail.com.

UPDATE: COVID in Maua
As of mid-June 2021, the hospital has been able to fully vaccinate their staff with the Astra-Zeneca vaccine. Maua Methodist Hospital has been designated as a vaccine distribution point in central Kenya. So far, however, only doses for the hospital population have arrived. Please pray with us for more vaccine to arrive so that the subsistence farmers in the area, few of which have insurance, can be protected from COVID.
