Their Journey to Hope and Healing Begins with You!
Decades of ethnic violence have displaced hundreds of thousands of the Karen people in Myanmar, leaving behind a legacy of trauma and despair. Generations of Karen children have grown up fleeing from place to place or seeking refuge in temporary camps in the dangerous "No-Man's Land" region on the border between Thailand and Myanmar. With limited access to higher education and employment, many engage in at-risk behaviors. Drug and alchohol abuse are prevalent, and suicide rates in some camps are as high as three times the global average.
ASAP Ministries supports 20 schools for more than 1,500 displaced Karen young people in Myanmar and Thailand. This holiday season, we're sharing the comfort of God's Word with them using MegaVoice© Wildlife Storytellers™. These stuffed animals are equipped with solar-powered audio players programmed with Bible stories, songs, memory verses, and lessons from our Growing Safe curriculum in the Karen language. On Giving Tuesday, December 3, 2019, help us raise $50,000 to put one in the hands of every child in our Karen schools.
These precious children have suffered unimaginable hardships and trauma. But when you give to this project, their journey to hope and healing begins with you!
