Thanks to your generous new and continued contributions, we have been able to serve more children as well as providing them with much needed supplies and regular meals. Below are a few of the pictures of the children with their new backpacks, new children's bibles, and enjoying a much appreciated meal.
Easter Celebration among the small Christian population in Pakistan was brought to a horrific halt when a Taliban suicide bomber detonated himself in a park where many Christians were gathered to celebrate Easter.
Women and children made up the majority of those killed or injured. We stand with our brothers and sisters in Christ to mourn these senseless deaths. We pray for the injured and the families of the deceased.
You CAN DO something...Redeemer Christian Foundation, Inc. promotes the love and hope of Jesus among the children of these Middle Eastern countries. Join us in standing up to extremist hatred with the Message of Jesus' love. Our world needs this now more than ever.
The children celebrated Easter with our Director reading the Easter Message from the Bible. There was singing, and dancing, and praising Jesus for what He has done for them. A special traditional Pakistani dish of chicken, rice, vegetables, and spices was prepared and served along with a glass of milk.
Most of the children who attend RCF, Inc. sponsored schools are so poor and destitute that they are fortunate if they get chicken or fish in their diet once a month. We are working to change that by providing a nutritious meal (with protein) during the school day.
This winter, generous supporters brought the Joy of Christmas to the children supported by RCF, Inc. The children acted out the story of the Nativity. There were songs, dancing, and worship. The children were treated to the only Christmas gift they would receive. Each child received a warm article of clothing, a small toy, treats and then celebrated with a warm and hearty Christmas meal.
We are still in need of contributions to supply: Bibles, textbooks, notebooks, and book bags to new students. Often, the meal the students get while at school is the only meal they will get for the day. We would like to provide a more substantial and nourishing meal. Other needs include:
- Desks, tables, chairs, (children currently sit on carpets).
- We have one laptop per 50 students. We would like to add at least 2 more.
- We need to add more teachers as well as a security guard.
- Storage cupboards, book shelves
- A projector
- Ongoing operational costs (rent, utilities, maintenance)
- Our God-sized dream is to own our own building. With God, all things ARE possible!!
Please donate to help these children the world has forgotten.
