Important Update: Due to increased government restrictions put in place at the start of December due to an influx of COVID-19 cases from across the border and efforts to track and limit possible spread, we are no longer able to run the outreach event on December 5... BUT! It is not cancelled, merely POSTPONED. We are continuing to receive donations (so you can still drop off those second-hand items) and organise everything so we are ready to go ahead once restrictions ease. We look forward to being able to share the Good News with the people of Phukai and to shower them with blessings - thanks to YOUR generosity! We hope to be able to "Bless Phukai This Christmas" in January - and will keep you updated here! Stay tuned and have a Merry Christmas!
YOU GAVE SO MUCH EXTRA!
Our Village Project seeks to reach out to the poor, needy, vulnerable and disadvantaged in the villages and communities around us in Chiang Rai Province. The village of Phukai is one of these - the families of this community were already struggling long before COVID hit earlier this year, and it's only intensified since then. We'd love to be able to bring some light, joy and practical blessing to them this Christmas and as we enter into cold season here in the North.
Together with IDF (Ignite Dreams Foundation) we are receiving donations of secondhand clothes, toys and household items and are planning a lively Christmas Outreach Event for December 5th. During the event we plan to have snacks and hot meals for everyone and each of the 85 families will receive a food hamper with rice and other essential food items for their family. We will have live music, an encouraging message and everyone will get a turn at looking through the donated goods to take a few new items home with them.
Please join us as we Bless Phukai This Christmas!
We're hoping to raise at least 40,000 baht to help in the purchase of everything we need for this event and invite you and your family to be part of Blessing Phukai This Christmas! If we receive more, we can give more!
