USPG Advent 2018
This Advent, join USPG in praying for mothers and babies around the world
Pray with us and make a donation this Advent to support churches around the world as they reach out to mothers and babies who have little access to health care.
In Ghana, Gloria benefited from the Diocese of Cape Coast’s Integrated Health Programme, which is supported by USPG.
Children in Gloria’s village were often falling sick. Then the diocese ran a workshop to explain the importance of washing fruit and vegetables bought at market and washing children’s hands before meal times. Gloria’s children became healthier – and the incidence of waterborne diseases in her village fell dramatically.
Gloria said: ‘The health programme has helped me and my family. Before the programme, my children, in fact the whole family, would visit the hospital a lot because of diseases. But now it is five months since we went to hospital.’
Please encourage your church to pray for Gloria and all mothers and babies this Christmas – remembering especially those in communities hit by poverty.
