An orphan myself, I've been reaching out and helping orphans in different parts of the Southeast Asian country. A beautiful country consisting of an archipelago of 27,000 islands with the world's 4th largest population of nearly 265 million souls.
I've made some great friends there and am doing everything I can to help meet different needs by myself but I can't do this by myself.
Here are some situations I've encountered:
Bian, a young entrepreneurial spirit with a big heart, combating Leukemia for the past year, unable to work and he and his family have little to no resource to help cover his medical bills. He wants to work in administration when he's better.
Imam, hard-working, loyal son to farming parents. He's gone through so much in one year; but he's overcome many obstacles by the Grace of God. He's now on his own in a big city currently looking for work, but it is extremely difficult to find. Needs funds to help cover his rent and food. He recently walked for miles searching for work, but no luck as of yet. A prospective fashion designer, he needs funds to help purchase a sewing machine and a mannequin to make his dreams come true.
Wildfire, another interesting young fellow; a recent university graduate, he's looking for work but because he's been orphaned since December 2004 when Southeast Asia was hit by the typhoon, he oftentimes lacks food and ends up in the hospital due to serious hydration and other problems are exacerbated. He'd love to open an online clothing shop, but has no capital. In the meantime, he helps his grandmother work in the rice fields, very physically demanding work.
Hari, another solid young guy with a tremendous love for his family, though he's lived away from them since he was 14, to help support his parents to pay for his younger siblings' education. He and all of his co-workers suddenly lost their jobs when their contract was terminated with no advance notification or compensation.
So I'm asking for your help. Would you kindly consider giving whatever amount you feel you can? Even a $1.00 donation is greatly appreciated! I'm thanking you on behalf of my friends and myself in this great time of need!
Once again, thank you so much for your gift!!! Blessings to you,
