Cafe Agora

Last month I joined 12 other Kiwis and flew to Northern Thailand to help construct a clean water and sanitation system in a small Red Lahu village called Huay Sai. This trip was a partnership between Cafe Agora, Bright Hope World and several NZ churches.

You can check out the trip at www.agora.net.nz. We completed the project and now the 90 families of Huay Sai have begun their journey to health and hygiene. Yeah!

But only 7 days after we left the village a wildfire swept through burning to the ground 14 homes leaving 46 people homeless. Food, clothing, bedding, next season's seed and trading currency all destroyed. And as the news came through and I saw the pics of the families my heart sank... for each face was familiar... these were the very people we had dug trenches, mixed concrete, played football and danced around the evening campfire with.

The group we worked with in Thailand (ITDP) is made up of skilled hill-tribe staff wanting to help their own people. As at this week they are on the ground in Huay Sai helping alongside Red Cross with immediate relief. They have begun to assess the need and develop a long term plan to help rebuild these families homes and lives. At Agora and our partnering churches we are committed to praying and providing for this need.

This next Agora Goes Live is a way that you and your friends can get involved and help meet this great need... and while at it have a sweet night out with awesome food, company and entertainment.

All the $10 door donation and the total hot beverage sales for the night (thanks to local coffee roasters Laroma) will be given to ITDP to help rebuild the homes and lives of Huay Sai.
