Jit & Jan - Lanternlight Ministries – Community Based RehabilitationProject Updates RSS

Details

Project Code: TOya412

Located in Sangklaburi, Thailand, Jit and Jan have been working with others to make sure over 220 people with disabilities living in the local district are looked after. Group and community activities, family support, advocacy and the provision of appropriate equipment all add to quality of life. This Lanternlight Ministry project provides this assistance along with the opportunity to hear the Gospel in a way that is meaningful and transformative among these communities. 

They work tirelessly to see those with a disability, and their families, have an improved quality of life through equal opportunities within and outside their communities. It is their desire to see each person develop as an individual, learn new skills and move towards their potential for inter-dependent and independent living. Through this work they partner with churches to see the Christian community develop a sense of responsibility towards those in need in their communities. 

This project covers the costs of running disability group activities in rural areas, to purchase specialised equipment to improve qualities of life and provides the needs of the team travelling and empowering people with disabilities in this Thai/Myanmar border area. 

Gifts to this project are NOT TAX DEDUCTIBLE 

Through this project, you are directly supporting people with disabilities in rural Thailand to have a better opportunity at life through support, rehabilitation and hearing the Good News of Jesus.
