General Support – Vietnam & Philippines
1. Providing School Uniform, Books and Occasional Gifts
Helping poor families purchase the essentials for school can be the difference between a childhood and life spent on the street or an education followed by a skilled job. A few checks during the school year and a Christmas gift usually act as sufficient encouragement for them to stay; they are surprised that someone else cares. It’s a life-changer!
Annual Cost: Books & Uniform per child = $20 for a whole year. [Can you help them?]
2. Distributing Food Hampers To Poor Families
The hamper we give may be stretched to last a family of three or four for weeks! Poverty is often hidden, photographs deceive!
Annual Cost: Food Hamper (50 Meals) or 50kg bag of rice = $50. [Can you help them?]
