Discriminated against, denied education, and sometimes even separated from their parents, Christian children in restricted nations inevitably become victims of persecution, as they are the most vulnerable members of society.
VOM Australia’s Christmas Care project ensures many children in restricted nations will receive a gift for Christmas.
Last year, 3,000 children received Christmas Care packs in restricted nations, including Cameroon, Nigeria, and Jordan.
In Cameroon, 80% of children who received the packs had been through the terrors of an attack by Boko Haram and 20% were orphaned as a result.
In Nigeria, many of the children were residents of a children’s crisis care home, while others were children of widows or those living in conflict areas.
In Jordan, all the children were refugees, having escaped Iraq with their families, due to persecution.
This year, Christmas Care packs will be distributed in Myanmar, Philippines, Egypt, Pakistan, Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Malaysia and Gaza.
Each child will receive a children’s Bible, school supplies and other items, tailored to their specific country.
You can bring joy to a child by gifting $30.
