3.13.2020 The Corona Virus has changed our needs.
The world is confronting a pandemic. It is a harsh reality that requires an honest appraisal. This virus has inflicted devastating consequences in the loss of life and in the disruption to everyone's way of life. In a time of crisis, we turn to God's Word for guidance and comfort. See Philippians 2:4-6
Therefore please be observant that the poor and the marginalized will be hurt the most. We are not pessimistic we are honest and know this event will shape the year, even with a swift recovery we all the Coronavirus and the scare will change all things on earth.
We appeal to you for gifts to our emergency fund now, so we will be able to respond fast to the appeals from our projects. We know that Non Profits traditionally will be the first to be cut from your economic and financial plan. Now you know why it is so important to continue and for you who do not give to chime in with perhaps just 10 dollars a month. Together we are strong and will help keep and restore our children's lives.
1. Get Your Household Ready for Coronavirus Disease 2019 - opens a CDC Interim Guidance sheet.
We want our kids healthy and in a normal environment.
We have had a wonderful year in 2019 with many projects completed. We were blessed with funds for new construction projects including Churches, Schools, and water projects, as well as seed and tool projects and more. Our main thrust is always the 30,000 kids in our schools, learning their ABC's as well as hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our Vision is a world where all children have an opportunity to become educated, healthy adults, get involved in their communities and share their love of Jesus Christ.
We depend on your time, talent and treasure. Without you, the kids would not be in school and our extra important projects would never have a chance, so thank you and God bless you. Our primary desire is that you become a sponsor. That is what we need to make it possible to help kids around the world. $30 a month will fill the need for one child!
TOP NEEDS 2020 Continued
Lunch Buddies needed, ( value with a punch) Lunches at school keep kids in school where they learn and hear the gospel, this is vital to help them succeed now and forever. We have a huge deficit in our feeding program.
Water wells in Haiti
When hurricane Matthew struck in October, the pipes to the old water station were destroyed in the remote village of Hesse. This could have had severe consequences – but the people of Hesse did not have to despair. Because right before the hurricane struck, Star of Hope had finished the construction of new wells made possible by private donations from dedicated sponsors. Their water is now being used for drinking as cooking as well as personal hygiene by grateful local families.
Cattle in Argentina
In Argentia, we have a cattle operation and the income from it helps provide long-term support for the Toba population and other projects that help the children. We have worked for over 40 years in Argentina. You are so important here, you can be involved in investing in needed farm animals to increase the; heard, profit, and the amount of assistance given. Every
earned dollar goes to help the Toba population. However, the farm is too small to generate any major profits but with your help, we can eventually create a self-sufficient source of income to help the work. Right now we need to add more calves, is this interesting call CEO, Mark Presson
Build new children’s home to replace one that we have to vacate. $375,000 needed
This is the Carrefour children’s home for 100 kids. They have to vacate the property which they did not own. The government has made land available outside the city. Other donors have pledged or given half of the total cost of $750,000. The balance we need is $375,000. This will build 4 group homes, each holding 20 children and an apartment for a set of house parents. The project also includes a dining/study hall and an office/guest house.
Child Evangelism & Discipleship Training. $97,500 needed
This project will make sure that each child has a Bible. Each teacher has training in child evangelism and child discipleship training. Since this is a startup project for us that we intend to replicate worldwide, I estimate the cost to be $25 per child. We have 3,900 children presently in our projects in Haiti.
The dream is to expand this all 30,000 children we work with worldwide. The cost for that will reach $600,000.
The building is paid for but we need help to furnish it and run it. Girls who have been abused need a free haven to get back to normalcy. Star of Hope is attacking the problem in the slums too. ( the girls in the foto are not in the project) see https://www.starofhope.us/philippines/star-dorm-is-open
