This action was taken just four years after the end of a 12-year civil war. The negotiated Peace Accords, signed in 1992, called on the newly formed government to facilitate Land Reform.

Weekend Kids Meals
Did you know that 45% of students in the Eau Claire Area School District qualify for the free or reduced lunch program? There is a great need to tackle hunger in our local community.
Because of this, each Friday during the school year, Feed My People provides bags of food for more than 1,200 preschool and elementary students in Eau Claire.
Churches in our community have partnered with Feed My People to make this program availalbe to more schools. Hope Lutheran sponsors Sam Davey Elementary by assisting with funding, packing of the meal bags, and delivery of the meals each Friday. Join us Wednesday evenings to help pack meals!
Once a month Hope volunteers with Immanuel Lutheran to serve a meal at the Community Table. Sign up in the gathering space or contact us! It is usually the fourth Wednesday of the month.
