A FIGHT AGAINST EBOLA
RNM, along with its local and international partners is striving for Ebola free communities as we race against time in bringing appropriate hygiene and sanitation standards, coupled with immune system boosting education in the fight against EVD (Ebola Virus Disease) and the threat to public health.
Since the out-break in West Africa in April, and July 2014 for Nigeria, we have to date trained 1500 people at various Christian gatherings & Churches. In Nigeria, about 6 people died as a result of Ebola virus infection, and a total of approx. 3000 people across West Africa - particularly, in Liberia, Guniea and Sierra Leone. We plan to "Nation Wide Awarness sessions in Nigerian Schools" beginning in early October, 2014. Your help, support and prayers will enable us to fullfil the dream of an Ebola free Environment. Donate now to support this special Cause and our Gala Fundraiser coming up on Friday November 14, 2014.

Tell a story about our new initiatives in Niger... the 2011 Walk for Water Relief jointly organized with Faith For All Nations Church in League City to reach to the people of Niger. More about the people, and challenges.
Niger program is a partnership outreach with Faith for All Nation's Church in League City with a drive for the Great Commission, and the beneficiary ministry - Vie Abundante', a ministry developing indegeneous Church leadership through discipleship programs.
RNM is also on tract to deliver a new rig in the Republic du Niger through a Church and collaborative partnership with Faith for All Nations Church in League City, and Vie Abundante' in Niger. Already geophysical field surveys have been done at 6 proposed new well sites in Niger, and plan is underway to commence drilling there by Q3 of 2012. To become a part of these goals and vision, please make a contribution to help us bring clean water and the Word to the thirsty in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Children in particular needs safe drinking water to develop and grow well. They need time to learn and not be laboring for longer hours than they sleep fetching water or firewoods so their moms can cook a meal. Any economic and social development truely begins with access to safe water.
We target communities, schools, Churches, hospitals, or rural clinics with no easy access to safe water, especially for drinking.
We strive to replace unsafe water sources like the one above in Torodi - where families walk 2 to 3 miles to fetch flood water from shallow and unprotected wells in the valley with good drilled and sealed deep wells. Further we teach and educate them on good hygiene standards: how to keep their water containers clean, basic hand-washing habbits, avoiding deficating in the bush, especially near their homes, boiling any water that they drink that is not from a deep safe well, etc.
Relief Network Ministries, Inc. (RNM) is now working to get additional 12 new water wells completed in 2012 in Nigeria alone, with 4 old / damaged well rehabilitations already done in Q1 of 2012. Water is just the beginning of the recovery & relief effort. Sanitation and hygiene must be added along with Christian witness and medical aid.
