2 years ago, as Southern Sudan sought independence, the Mocha Club community partnered with teams on the ground to provide clean water in Jaac, Sudan where it was desperately needed. Each water solution that Mocha Club helped to create (over 30 in total) provided safe and clean drinking water for more than 1,000 people who would have otherwise faced death by starvation or water-related illnesses. Here is a look back at a message from our teams on the ground on how Mocha Club members have made an incredible impact in the lives of communities-at-risk in Africa:
“..There, in the midst of the suffering and violence, was something else. You. Your compassion. Your solidarity. Your encouragement.
You may not have been in Jaac personally, but your heart was. Your hands were. While the rest of the world either ignored the problem, denied it existed, or just wrung its hands in indecision, you responded. We sent out the call, and you responded.
What we brought from a material perspective was small. But what we brought, which could not be seen, was exactly what the refugees in Jaac needed more than food and shelter. Encouragement.”
