Philip and Cara will take a team to Africa from RiverLife Fellowship with CHaRA Mission (Construction Health and Relief Acts) in October 2010. There the team will be building, providing medical care, teaching, digging wells, and doing ministry.

CHaRA Mission is based out of Concord, NC.  Their vision is to improve the lives of the people of East Africa through good health, safe water, education, care of orphans, and the love of God. Their passion is to bring life, hope, and joy to those in need through acts of love and compassion. Their vision is to see the bonds of poverty broken, children in good health and the plight of malaria no more as they partner with the people of Tanzania and those who give for the mission to be fulfilled.

Last summer, Cara went with CHaRA and participated in medical clinics in Tanzania for mothers and children under the age of 5.  After volunteering in Tanzania with CHaRA, she fell in love with the African people and the vision of the mission.   

Upon her return home, she knew that one day she would return and hoped to bring a team.  

In November, Philip and Cara decided that they were going to take a team from River Life Fellowship to Africa with CHaRA in October 2010.  (Anyone interested is welcome to come with the River Life team)

Right now, the team is forming and plans are being made on how we will be utilized!  Current needs include building a safe house, building a school, providing medical care, ministry, teaching, setting up a computer lab at the school, teaching the teachers how to use and teach about computers, digging a closed well on Tumbatu-a small island off of Zanzibar-to provide a village with clean water.

The cost of the trip is $3500 per person (not including vaccines).  The cost includes roundtrip airfare, travel insurance, accommodations, and meals. Any extra money raised will go towards medicine for the clinics or towards another CHaRA project.

Please email us at if you have any questions or are interested in joining us on this trip!

If you are interested in joining us, the only requirements are a heart full of love and readiness to work in hot, humid weather!
