DALLAS, Dec. 10, 2012 – MegaCARE Missions, the global humanitarian arm of T.D. Jakes Ministries, is building positive relationships and helping to foster peace within the country of Kenya.
Earlier in December, staff and volunteers traveled to the country for wide-spread service projects which included completing the restoration of a damaged water pipeline constructed by MegaCARE in 2006. The pipeline, before the damage, supplied water to thousands of people, a million goats and sheep, 400,000 head of cattle, wild life and crops and helped the tribes live in peace.
In June of this year, Bishop T.D. Jakes sent the MegaCARE team to inspect several of the 14 water systems developed by MegaCARE since 2005. During the inspections, the team learned that the recent earthquake and rains in the Rift Valley had damaged the pipeline, restricting the access to water for thousands of villagers and their livestock.
This December 2012, MegaCARE completed the restoration project on the Rift Valley pipeline and water is freely flowing to the valley once again.
As an honored son of Kenya, Bishop T.D. Jakes is very pleased to support Kenya’s vision for a brighter future by empowering the next generation through sustainable community development efforts.
WHAT: MegaCARE will be meeting with tribal leaders to reinforce relationships between the tribes and to discuss goals for returning the pipeline to a self-sustainable project going forward. Representatives from both tribes are expected to attend and bring thousands of livestock to take part in the celebratory reinforcement of the peace agreement.
