One of the world’s largest mission agencies is launching compassion projects in Africa.
GFA World, formerly known as Gospel for Asia, expects to begin work in multiple African nations this year.
Launching the projects in Rwanda, GFA World founder K.P. Yohannan says Africa is where the tears never dry.
Rwanda is still recovering from the war and genocide that left 800,000 dead and ripped the country apart in the 1990s.
Dr Yohannan told Christian Newswire they plan a huge boost of humanitarian efforts in the world’s poorest continent.
These will include trained women missionaries who will serve widows, orphans and those living in leprosy colonies.
About half of Africa’s population is under the age of 15, and the average life expectancy is 50.
