What is made possible by your donation

The child you sponsor will receive proper school education, which includes supplementary instruction in foreign languages and mathematics. Instruction materials and required school uniforms (Anglican school system) are also funded by your donations.

The child you sponsor will receive adequate medical care. (The children have been in contact with severely contaminated tsunami water, and suffer from various skin diseases.)

Part of your donation will help foster families to purchase food and basic necessities. (In the region, most commercial and craft businesses have been destroyed by the tsunami, so there are no jobs.)

It is one of our major concerns that we can help people to help themselves.

We are funding tools, sewing machines, and repairs of boats and moped taxis so that in the long run, families can again care for themselves.
