Service for the Love of God, Inc. exists as a non-profit 501 C 3 catholic based charitable organization committed to sharing God's love through prayer, support, services, material goods and cultural exchange between the people of Benin (West Africa) and the people of the United States of America.
During our Mission in Benin, Africa we visited a Leper Colony. There were approximately 45 lepers at the colony and many of them had dressings over their wounds. The dressings were old, tattered and very dirty. The doctor said they are in desperate need of new dressings. Africa has many victims of the terrible disease leprosy. They are outcasts in society and life is not kind to them. You can help make life a little easier for them by making and donating these handmade bandages to wrap their wounds. You may wonder why handmade bandages and not gauze bandages. The reason is that the handmade bandages breathe better and can be washed for re-use. If you have the God given talent to be able to crochet and you have the time to share with our brothers and sisters in Jesus then we ask you PLEASE to help us by making some bandages for the lepers of Benin.
