Adonai Child Rehabilitation (ACR) is a Christian faith-based ministry in Myanmar that was established on May 20, 2016. This ministry creates a place of rehabilitation for children and teenagers from various backgrounds like orphans, unwanted children, street children, and poor children. We are partnering with them to help provide nutritious food for their 11 orphans this year, as well as some other basic necessities like school supplies, clothing, and bedding.
Thanks to our donors, Henry and Lisa Chang and Grandma Chu's Love Fund, our fundraising goal for ACR this year has already been met!
Nayong Children without Care of Parents
There’s a special group of children living in the mountains of Nayong county of Guizhou province. They are called children without care of their parents. They live with their grandparents. It is quite normal that their fathers died and their mother left the village. The children make up about 10% of the local children.
The youngest child was still an infant when her mother had left her. The eldest was about 4 when their parents had left them. They had to do housework or fieldwork while other children are beloved and cared. They had no one to care about them. Sometimes, they took out the photo of their mother from a drawer and touch her face on the photo. Or they went to their fathers’ tomb and spoke to the grave. They barely eat full and stay in shabby rooms. Some of them did not have a bed.
Shortage of materials was not the main problem. They had to bear great mental pains. In the other children’s eyes, they have been abandoned by their mothers. They just hide themselves in the corner and keep silent. They are the targets being bullied. She loves drawing and nothing had been left. They do not want their grandparents to be sick. They could not afford to lose their only family. They would like to call mom, but no one would answer.
