Creation Care

9 September 2022

Creation Care has been a ministry platform for the South East Asia team since 2016. The initiative runs activities for social and community development among underprivileged communities, along with environmental campaigns and activities.

 

Under Creation Care there are two regular programs that we run, which are the Reading Garden and the Trash Bank.

The Reading Gardens are a signature program that combines the objectives of child literacy and environmental education.

The two Reading Gardens are in underprivileged areas where children have little access to books. The initiatives also provides rich opportunities for the team to build relationships with the parents and others in the community.

The Trash Bank is set up to connect and serve the Scavenger community, who are seen as very low on the social ladder in South East Asia.

During 2021, the Trash Bank collected around 133 tonnes of trash from its network of Scavengers.

 

Why?

  • To contribute to waste solution and help protect the environment
  • To support and empower Scavengers and their families by purchasing their collected recyclable trash for a fair price
  • To build relationships with the Scavengers and bring about emotional and spiritual transformation

 

Praise God that some Scavengers are gathering as a faith community through the Trash Bank. They meet every week to study the word of God together.

One of them is a man who has a deep passion to share about Jesus and reach out to new people. One of these new people is Abel, who has gone through various challenges in his life but was brought to Jesus by this man.

Before this, Abel lived a life of heartache and pain. He had even considered ending his own life. Now he has been transformed by Christ. Praise God!

Pray with us that the good news of Jesus will be shared with many throughout this community.
