Introducing Pastor Steven from Rwanda:

Pastor Steven

Pastor Steven Turikunkiko has set up a community in Rwanda for victims of the genocide. 160 widows & teenagers & 80 younger children live with him; farming, sharing their lives and caring for those dying from AIDS. The community subsists on less than $1 per person per day.

At enormous personal sacrifice, Pastor Steven and his wife have also adopted 20 orphans - who live with them and their 2 other children.

Leukemia rates rise in Basra

Iraq flagA study in Basra has shown that childhood rates of leukemia have doubled in the last 15 years.

698 cases were documented during that period, with a peak of 211 in 2006. The causes are not known for sure. However, Basra has suffered from major military action in three wars during that period – and there are many oil fields in the area too. It is suspected that the byproducts of petroleum fires, war-related nerve agents, pesticides and depleted uranium munitions may have had a savage effect on the health of young people in the area.
