Mormon Helping Hands

Mormon Helping Hands  is world wide.  It's where member's of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints carry out a community service drive.  During this time the Church members partner with local communities, other faith, corporate organizations and the media to conduct projects ranging from clean-up exercises, planting of trees, donation of blood, working at health centers, digging trenches, unblocking drainages, visiting children's homes and other less advantaged members of the society.  The communities always have needs requiring service.  This year we cleaned the Kongowea Market.  An open market where large trucks bring in produce from fruit to vegetables and dump them on the open ground.  It is something you have never in your life seen.  It is filthy but it seems that they appreciate it.  The market supplies all the tools, shovels, rakes (if that's what you call them) and wheel barrels.  The pictures here show the Elder's gearing up for the project and the sister's who work even harder and in skirts.
