Don Smith's organization does not waste funds on tv advertising, fancy private jets, limos, celebrity foo foo, and other bloated administrative costs. No, No, No!
His missionary work takes place in extremely poor areas - - Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Zambia - - where there are life threatening shortages of food... and education is seriously lacking. There are orphans, crippled and elderly people who live in these villages and are dying by the thousands due to malnutrition and various diseases such as AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, polio, and many other diseases. Many infections are brought on by poverty, lack of education, and little or no medical care.
Don Smith is a man who believes in teaching people how to help themselves. His dedication has been exceedingly successful... Rescue has developed into not only food production, but also educational classes in the villages taught by local volunteers in reading, sanitation, family planning, sewing and knitting. They want to learn successful farming methods, equipment repair, and how to irrigate crops.
He says; yes, people appreciate charity but charity will not solve the problem and the African people he is working with understand this and they are very willing to receive education and do the needed labor. Because of "Rescue" many lives are being saved, poor people are being fed, children and adults are learning to read, elderly people are being cared for, and orphanages are being supported. They use the opportunity that we can give them to better their own lives and help themselves, their families, and all the people in their villages.
