This fund was originally the “Rice Appeal” that Child Impact does each year to support Adventist Mission boarding schools in Bangladesh, India, and Myanmar. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, it was extended to include hand soap and health education.
The Pandemic is now causing hardship at all levels. Many teachers and pastors have not received pay for two months or more because the schools have no funds. Students are also struggling at home.
Through our Emergency Rice and Health Fund, Child Impact will:
- Ensure that all schools have 6 months of rice supply for when the children return to school. This will include soap and health education.
- Where children are still at home, and it’s possible, assistance will be sent to students at home.
- Distribute rice to all teachers in need and where funds allow, also provide to unpaid ministers.
