Enjoy These 7 Christmas Gifts, with our Thanks and Appreciation

As another year draws to an end, we want to say thank you to all our amazing supporters who share our heart for seeing children released from poverty in Jesus Name.

Thank you for sponsoring a child! Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for giving so generously to our appeals and interventions… Wow! There are so many ways that you partner with us to enable local churches around the world to love and serve their communities. Your support empowers children and their families to overcome the immense barriers that poverty places in their paths. We’re so grateful for your faithful generosity.

Our CEO, Justin Dowds, shares:

“We are thankful for the faithful and prayerful support of our sponsors. Your partnership is transforming the lives of children living in extreme poverty, their families, and even communities around the world. You’ve helped our church partners sow hope where there was none, bring joy when people were in despair – all in the name of Jesus. Thank you.”

And that’s not all!

We hope these small gestures below will be a blessing to you as we look to celebrate the arrival of God’s incredible salvation plan for the world – Jesus. Our prayer is that you will know God’s joy and love this Christmas as you celebrate the coming of our Saviour.
