An Invitation to STAND WITH KORAH for 2014
Two thousand thirteen has been a good year in Korah… and a hard year in Korah. We have witnessed the harsh realities of extreme poverty. The deep pain and bondage it brings to families - hunger, sickness, separation, uncertainty and fear. We have also experienced the huge difference that HOPE brings - health, security, self-worth, confidence, anticipation for the future and joy. Together with the help of many Hope for Korah has had the opportunity to come alongside those who are living in these realities: the widows, orphans, families and lepers of Korah. We do so by partnering with Ethiopian nationals ‘Kore Great Hope Charities’ because we believe they know their community best. Together we are empowering the poor by developing programs such as the Family Sponsorship Program - a holistic approach to breaking the cycle of poverty for the entire family, Income Generation Program - building skills that lead to self-reliance, Berta Breakfast Feeding Program - Crisis Intervention for malnourished children, as well as a Kindergarten, Day Care and Elderly Home for Lepers. Most recently, we are partnering with the Medical Clinic that serves many of the needy living in Korah.
None of this would have been possible without the prayer and generous support of those who have come alongside us. Lives are truly being changed and we have had the privilege to witness this first hand. We are thankful for each person who helped to make a real difference and stood with Korah this past year. God provided all that was needed and much was accomplished. We now have a new year ahead of us and trust God has great things in store. Our projected budget for 2014 is $200,000. Half of this is already pledged through sponsorships and donations on hand. In order to meet the total needs for the year, our goal is to raise the remaining $100,000, and we are excited to share the news that our recent fundraiser ‘An Evening for Korah’ gave us a great start with $26,000. This means we need to raise $74,000 for the 2014 ministry year.
So, we would like to invite you to join us and
STAND WITH KORAH
We believe God has NOT forgotten the people of Korah, but has a plan for this community and continues to bring others to stand alongside them. We invite you to be one of those people. Any gift, great or small, is important and will help loosen the yoke of poverty in Korah.
Thank you for prayerfully considering how YOU could STAND WITH KORAH.
We wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas filled with great hope and joy,
Eve Pohl R.S.W.
