Dear Friend, In many ways, Christmas in Africa is no different from our celebrations here: it a time for families to come together in honor of our Lord. Families will prepare great feasts; they might go caroling in their villages, and most certainly, they dress to the nines and celebrate the birth of our Savior at a joyous church service. But can you imagine what celebrating Christmas would be like without family? The Christ’s Hope Christmas Gift Catalog is a way that together we can help children in 6 African countries celebrate Christmas with family. Children who suffer from AIDS or who have lost their parents to the disease are often displaced or rejected. When they come to the Christ’s Hope Ministry CarePoint, they need food, education, medication, and above all, family support–all things that are crucial for their long-term survival. The greatest gift we can give this year is a safe and thriving home for a vulnerable child in Africa. By choosing an item from this catalog that you’d like to support, your Christmas giving this year can include rebuilding the family environment that these AIDS orphans and vulnerable children need so desperately. Use the online gift tags so that your loved one knows the impact you will make together. We also hope that your family will take some time during the busy Christmas season to pray for the children of Christ’s Hope, that these small offerings we make together will result in an everlasting transformation in the hearts of children and their families throughout Africa.

In His name,

David Kase Director, Christ’s Hope USA P.S. Be sure to download custom gift tags from the Christ’s Hope website:

CHOOSE A GIFT

School Backpack and Supplies

School Uniform and Shoes

Provide a backpack filled with school supplies and other essentials for one AIDS-affected child in Africa. These backpacks include exercise books, two pens, two pencils, eraser, sharpener, shoe polish–tools that children need to continue their education.

Uniforms are required for school – and are quite expensive – for children in Africa who might otherwise subject their lives to hardship and suffering without education. Providing uniforms and shoes for school children is the first step toward moving these children away from the vicious impact that the AIDS pandemic has had on their lives.

School Tuition for One Year

School Uniforms for an Entire Ministry CarePoint

Children who remain in school have a better chance of avoiding a lifetime of hardship. But they also represent a hope and a future as families move away from a life debilitated by AIDS and toward a life with Christ. Your gift will supply one AIDS-affected child (grade kindergarten through 8) with a future.

You can purchase uniforms and shoes for an entire Ministry CarePoint – approximately 30 children and help transform a village for Christ. Make it a gift for your entire family!

MINISTRY CAREPOINT NO LONGER ALONE Lorvina is 3 years old. She lives with her mother and brothers, but her dad died a while ago. Most of the time, the family doesn’t have more than one meal a day, some days they have none. Very often Lorvina is left alone at home. When Lorvina started coming to the Christ’s Hope’s Ministry CarePoint, she was so withdrawn that no matter what caregivers said to her, she would not react. Not a sound would come out her mouth. She would not play with toys.  Lorvina was looking neglected and sad.

Hygiene Packs Every day thousands of children die from illnesses like diarrhea, dysentery, and cholera caused by dirty water and unhygienic living conditions. Your gift will help families combat those debilitating diseases with a simple hygiene pack that includes bar soap, antibacterial soap, a toothbrush, Vaseline, toothpaste, toilet paper, sanitary pads, water purifer, and bleach.

$20

CHRIST’S HOPE

Today Lorvina has made such progress, just learning to be a child again. She smiles and speaks, even in French! At the Ministry CarePoint, she jumps, plays with the others and loves the toys there. She has started to go to preschool and she loves it. Lorvina comes to the Ministry CarePoint after school,

and best of all, she doesn’t have to be alone at home anymore.
