Then he put a little child among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, “anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes not only me but also my Father who sent me.” Mark 9:36-37 NLT
The Philippine children that we are working with come from their humble bamboo shanties that are built over waters filled with sewage and indescribable waste. Urban development in Bacoor has pushed their families off the land and the city considers them without value, identity or importance.
Most residents of these slum areas are uneducated and unemployed; parents have great difficulty providing even one or two daily meals for their children. The precious children often are without clothing and shoes and their frail bodies appear malnourished.
The slum areas are vast and there is no access to medical care or money to cover such an expense even if it was available. Many children get involved in drugs, alcohol, gangs, prostitution, and other life-altering situations.
CRAM’s BOAT KIDS CLUB (BKC) welcomes all children to come. We work together with their families to lift them out of this devastating life situation. We help them to break free from the seemingly endless cycle of poverty by providing the children with food, clothing, education, access to medical care, and spiritual guidance.
Since so many families are transient and follow available work opportunities, it is extremely difficult to assign one child to one sponsor. We have found that while the individual children being sponsored receive benefit, many others longingly await the opportunity to receive the support, love, and care they need from a sponsor!
For CRAM to effectively meet the needs and cover the many unique situations of the BKC Program, we must change our approach. As of January 1, 2018, the Boat Kids Club will provide our new BKC partners with an individual child’s story and picture to remember in prayer. Each quarter, our BKC partners will receive an update from a different child in the program that will identify specific ways you can pray for them! All monthly BKC gifts will be distributed equally among the children. Many children will know the joy of love and care that they so desperately need! Contributions for the BOAT KIDS CLUB PROGRAM will be used 100% to bring bless through this Children’s Ministry.
For only $1.00 per day, you can help CRAM share the love of Jesus with these precious children. Will YOU help us extend God’s love and compassion to the BKC children in the Philippines?
If you would like to sponsor our kids, simply click the donate button. The fund will be designated to the Children’s Ministry. 100% of your gifts toward BOAT KIDS CLUB program will be used for the kid.
Thank you for your prayerful support!
