Operation Christmas Child {A New Venture}

Late last week, Samaritans Purse welcomed me as a volunteer. I’m very excited to join the team at Samaritans Purse to assist with one of their major projects, Operation Christmas Child. This is a wonderful project that demonstrates God’s love. It brings joy and hope to millions of children in desperate situations around the world by giving shoe boxes filled with toys, hygiene items, school supplies and the message of God’s unconditional love. This is a simple hands on prjoect that ANYONE can be involved in.

Samaritans Purse helps those who are suffereing from the effects of war, famine, disease, extreme poverty and natural disasters.

Did you know?

  • More than 2.3 million children under 15 worldwide are living with HIV/AIDS.
  • In the past decade, war has claimed the lives of more than two million children.
  • As many as 1.8 million children are being forced into prostitution and pornography ever year around the world, some as young as 11 years old.
  • Each day, 5,000 children die needlessly from waterborne illnesses {equivalent to 12 full jumbo jets craching}.

If you want any more information about Operation Christmas Child and how you can be involved, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
