Nine KCS students recently performed an act of service for local missions organization CHaRA (Construction Health and Relief Acts). The non-profit organization, founded and led by Kannapolis residents Ron and Carol McDonald, focuses on children, mothers and communities in rural villages in East Africa where resources are limited. The McDonalds live on the Island of Zanzibar most of the year, as they work to provide health education, safe water solutions, construction projects and emergency relief help to the villages there.

Recently the McDonalds were home and hosted their 6th annual Birthing Hope Tea, a major fundraiser supporting CHaRA’s midwife program. The ladies tea raises awareness and funds for the Birthing Hope Project. The initiative provides education and clean birth kits for midwives to help reduce the infant mortality rate in Zanzibar villages.

The Birthing Hope Tea was held on March 21st in Concord.  KCS students volunteered their time to serve tea and snacks to the guests attending the event. Students participating in this service opportunity were Sierra Harvey, Jenna Waugh and Kayla Waugh from A.L. Brown High School and Alexus Litaker, Josie Laliemthavixay, Makenzie Davis, Alyssa Johnson, Tricia Hicks and Abby Streble from Kannapolis Middle School.
