Children all over the world have needs. In recognition of this, SEAPC started SEAPC Coins for Kids as a way of providing funding for those needs. Two fund drives are held each year, during the 6 weeks leading up to Easter and Thanksgiving, but funds are collected all year long. These funds are disbursed to other ministries providing care for children as well as SEAPC partnership ministries. To date, at least $124,000 has been collected and distributed for things such as school uniforms and tornado relief in the USA, building renovation at Charity Children’s Home in Myanmar, educational materials in Cambodia and blankets in India.
It has been said that the average American has 24 cents in spare change every day. That might not seem like much, but it can make a huge difference in the lives of children around the world when it is gathered together and combined with the love of Jesus. In response to this potential, South East Asia Prayer Center (SEAPC) has established SEAPC Coins for Kids.
From 2007 – 2015, Coins raised over $124,000! Some ways it was used:
~ New bunk beds and bathroom renovations for children at Charity Children’s Home in Myanmar
~ Salaries for teachers at the Cambodia Christian School Network
~ Allowed youth to attend a Nexus Student Ministry retreat in Pennsylvania
~ Vacation Bible School by R.E.A.C.H.at several of the NHO children’s homes in Cambodia
~ Sports equipment to Cambodian schools to start a baseball program
~ Heart procedures for children in Tibet
~ Backpacks and school supplies for inner-city children in Ohio
~ Blankets for children in northern India
~ Renovations of the boys’ dormitory at Charity Children’s Home in Myanmar
~ Lunch for the families of the victims of the Connecticut school shooting
*You’re welcome to start collecting anytime within or outside of our own campaign dates.
