As you celebrate a new family being created this wedding season, help families like Franz’s* heal.
Five year old Franz and his family are being healed by God through our partner’s work in Bolivia.
Five year old Franz’s mother Maria had spent 20 years working as a prostitute. Having been abandoned by her husband and struggling to feed, clothe or provide shelter for her children, she felt death was the only option and so began putting rat poison in their food.
It was only when Franz begged his mother to remain like the other children, playing and laughing, that she relented. The whole family came to our partner’s House of Hope ministry centre in 2018, utterly broken. However in this place of safety, they received love and care and have begun their journeys of healing.
A small but essential part of our partner’s holistic programme is celebrating each and every child’s birthday – a moment when songs, games, cake and presents reinforces the truth that as children of God, they are loved, valued and precious to Him.
This wedding season as you celebrate a new family being created, why not buy a gift that helps to heal an existing family. From £23 our wedding gifts will help families heal as they celebrate children’s birthdays. To find out more click here.
