Blankets for Rickshaw Drivers

Rickshaw drivers are a symbol of the 'old' India coexisting with the 'new' on the roads. They are a symbol of poor India sharing the same coordinates with the rich, a unique viewing experience which urban India offers to the world.

  • With Chritmas fast approaching, consider spending £5 less on traditional Christmas gifts and help us with a donation to make sure these children are able to feel the Christmas spirit this year.
Maybe you could donate instead of having a festive hot chocolate whilst shopping or donate on behalf of someone who you know would be so pleased to be helping a child experience the joy of Christmas.

  • Please pray for our partners throughout Asia. Their work relies upon them being fit and well to carry out visits to various parts of their mission fields; and in some instances, in the midst of war-torn areas. Pray for their stamina, protection and for their families at home while they are away. 
Please pray for the energy of our Asian partners to be revitalised so that they can fulfil their calling with the right spirit.
