This year has been challenging for everyone. Covid-19, and its effects on schools, businesses, and families have reached into nearly every home across the globe. But the virus presents unique challenges for developing countries and our Kinship Projects.
Fear is around every corner, it seems. But we can take comfort in remembering that Jesus came into a world full of chaos. God sent his son into a society riddled with unrest in order to bring us hope. This Christmas let’s move beyond fear and anxiety and use as our model our Savior who came to bring the world peace. As followers of Christ, we have a desire and a duty to help the most vulnerable: the orphan and the widow.
Consider MuMu, who was injured as an infant causing brain damage and then left to fend for herself. Today, MuMu is joyful and smiling only because of people like you.
The daughter of alcoholics, MuMu was abandoned at a hospital near the Thai/Myanmar border. Local families took care of her for as long as they could, but then brought her to the Wang Pa Kinship in Thailand. When she arrived, her skin was full of sores. Because of you, MuMu’s caregivers could love and care for her. She is now a singing and dancing little girl who would love to tell you a Bible verse she recently learned.
Precious little ones like MuMu, alone through no fault of their own, suffering from poverty and neglect, need help to succeed. Below, you’ll find two ways you can help children like MuMu thrive during this pandemic and onward into 2021. Please consider how you can make this Christmas extra special for the fragile who need assistance this year.
A donation of $30 will deliver as many as 1,000 meals! We can now reach the children in our Kinship Projects with a gift of food, as many supply lines have been restored. Your gift of life-saving food will also go to thousands of starving community members, many of whom are elderly and unable to provide for themselves.
If you’re able to give a little more, this would be one Christmas gift an orphan would not soon forget! Your gift of $2,500 allows 25 orphans audio/visual equipment, computers, and access to educational content during 2021. Kinship kids are learning at home with Kinship teachers assigned to each home and through access to the internet. But some Kinship Projects have not been able to start e-learning yet due to lack of resources.
