SHARING – Changing the Lives of Children
God loves His children all over the world – the big ones and especially the small ones. EBM INTERNATIONAL expresses this love in 43 great projects, making a difference in the lives of countless children. Every year more than 1,000,000 euros in donations are needed for this purpose. This blessing can only spread if many churches and individual donors remain faithful to us as a mission. We depend on receiving donations and prayers for us in mission services. We have created a new material booklet and a poster with a map of the world. Both can be found in our catalogue (in German only) and contain the following examples:
In the children’s home Chittador in India, 60 children find a home, love, and education. Rufus Kamalakar leads the project. Neeraja is 11 years old and has lived with her little brother for four years in the children’s home. Her mother died of AIDS. Both children have found friends in the home and are now going to school.
The social centre Diadema in Brazil helps 500 children to escape a life on the street. Simone Almeida is the local project manager. Lucas is nine years old. In the centre, he has found loving people, who are there for him, after his parents could not take care of him.
The Macia social centre in Mozambique regularly looks after more than 100 children. Many of the children live with different disabilities. Our missionary Sara Marcos is involved in Macia. Zailina is 14 and a wheelchair could be bought for her. Further wheelchairs are needed in the project.
With the Christmas donations, we create real help in the lives of children. In addition to the examples mentioned above, we support 13 other children’s homes in India, 3 social centers, many preschools and countless MANNA projects (family care) in Latin America as well as several schools in Africa.
