AME - SADA (Service and Development Agency)
May 17th is designated as AME- SADA Sunday in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. As we prepare for this special day, let us also reflect on a few interesting facts about SADA and our work in Haiti.
- AME SADA is a humanitarian nonprofit organization dedicated to “Helping People Help Themselves.”
- AME SADA grew out of the collective efforts of caring, compassionate and committed individuals who dared to make a difference in the lives of others.
- In 2014, you donated $83,137 on AME SADA Sunday.
- Your donations of vitamins, school uniforms, “Mama Kits," baby clothes and medical supplies helped to improve the lives of young parents and their children.
- Generous grants and donations from USAID, UNICEF, Plan International, Clinton-Bush Haiti fund, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, private organizations and donors provide educational opportunities, health services, and humanitarian aid for those in the Caribbean and Africa.
- Collaborative efforts of the Global Witness and Development Department of the AME Church, Bishops, General Officers, Connectional Officers, Presiding Elders, Pastors, WMS, and laity have resulted in the building of health clinics, offsetting the cost for mobile health services, educational materials and supplies.
- Future contributions to AME - SADA will help to assist with the completion of the Bishop Sarah Davis Cancer clinic, high-risk maternity center at Bercy, developing the HIV Educational project in the 18th Episcopal District-Botswana and Swaziland and developing agriculture, health, and alternative energy programs in the 14th Episcopal District-West Africa.
- On Sunday, May 17th, pastors will make a special offertory appeal for AME - SADA. Your offering during the appeal will help to make a difference in the lives of others.

the social and physical needs of the people in Haiti.
