Project Details


  • Project Description:

    Nearly one million people in this region of southern East Asia are under the control of a Communist Rebel Army Cartel. Every village family is required to give some of their children to the army to keep their ranks filled. Seen as the least “valuable,” the youngest children are usually given to the army. From as early as five years old, these children grow up in army barracks and learn to live with the trauma of abandonment and situations of abuse arising from such conditions. 

    Jesus sees these children and wants to redeem them. But how can they ever be rescued and hear the gospel of Jesus? How will this region and culture be redeemed? There is a way! You can be part of God’s rescue plan for these children through your gift to the rescue center. Your gift will underwrite the salaries of local caregivers to staff the center and supply the basic needs of the children who arrive with nothing except the clothes on their backs. The rescue center with its loving staff helps these children to grow up in a Christ-honoring community, offering them new life through Jesus that would never have been possible otherwise.

  • Cultural Information:

    Children are exploited as they are taken from their families and forced to be soldiers as young as age 5. 

  • Geographic Information:

    Difficult to access Southeast Asia location.
