Increased needs of the orphans that we support
Through our network we are seeking to minister to the children that are on the streets. At this time we are directly aware of 500+ such children and are looking to provide basic food, hygienic toiletries and medicines for these children is a lot to facilitate help for, especially at this time of crisis and quarantine.
So to cover this need, whilst we have hopes that their needs will be met by governments and others in their nations, we are looking to prepare for two weeks – we hope the crisis won’t last longer.
We are seeking to prepare at least 500+ survival bags for these children containing basic food, hygienic toiletries, a mask and any medicines required.
We calculate that the costs per bag is around $33 per week, so that is $18,216 AUD. per week in total. We are currently believing that this will be resolved in 2 weeks and that would make the total cost of $36,432 AUD.
The need is huge but if you can help in any way possible, we would greatly appreciate that. Please pray for these precious children and their great need.
Thank you for your wonderful partnership in the gospel and your compassion for these precious children.
Love and blessings, Dave & Margurita
