MANNA MINSTRIES CHILDRENS CHURCH

 

There are a total of 511 recognised slum areas in Phnom Penh. In total, just over 25,100 families live in slum dwellings.
Saturday mornings we visit the village of Pre Sor on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. We take fresh fruit for the children, help with medical care, and tell everyone that they are important – no matter how little they have.
”But the beach goes on for miles and there are millions of starfish …. how can your efforts make a difference?” …. The young man looked at the starfish in his hand and threw it to safety in the waves. ”It makes a difference to this one”, he said.

SUPPORTING INDIVIDUALS

We are blessed to be part of what God is doing in Cambodia and humbled by the constant opportunities we get to help individuals. We are grateful for the financial support from friends and family which make this possible.

FEED MY LAMBS

We want to promote – ‘Feed my Lambs’ which, since 2007, has provided regular healthy meals to children living in the city slums; as well as healthcare for the sick and elderly. At present over 100 Cambodian children are served a nutritious meal twice a week. Volunteers are welcome to help with this programme either by raising funds or by helping to cook for and serve these children. For further details contact John and Ann Turner www.feedmylambscambodia.org 

HELPING HAND

A sponsored education can save a child from a life of hunger, poverty and prostitution.

‘’When you’re a child struggling to get food and shelter, any hope of a good education is like dust in the wind.’’
Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in the world. About one third of the people live in poverty.

Almost half the population is made up of children. Many live in appalling conditions. No sanitation, no clean water, no safe food. Often children are forced into prostitution or sold into it by their families. Either way, they are used to put food on the table.  

We want to promote Helping Hand which provides the opportunity for people in the developed world (that’s you!) to sponsor the education of an individual child.

For more information on how you can support this project and visit your sponsored child here in Phnom Penh –  write to us or contact http://www.helpinghand.support.org
