Earthquake Relief Options

As I'm sure you've heard, a terrible 7.9 earthquake and over a huderd aftershocks rocked the country of China yesterday. There are many places that offer you the opportunity to donate to help with the post earthquake relief and I would like to offer you another option.

Half the Sky is an organiziation that cares for orphans in China. Some of the children they care for will eventually be adopted and still others will live their childhood within the walls of an orphanage or with foster families. They do great work and now, they are called to minister to many more. Per their website, 'Funds will be used to provide emergency and long-term relief to children affected by the disaster. Relief will include emergency shelter, food, and medical care for children orphaned or separated from their families. It will include temporary or long-term foster care or, when necessary, temporary institutional care.'

If you would like to donate to Half the Sky to assist them with their post earthquake relief you can do so here:

Canadian Donations

US Donations

Thank you for considering making a donation to help precious little children who have already faced many difficult times in their young lives. Thank you also for praying for them, their caregivers and the many, many people of this beautiful country who yesterday, their lives were forever changed.
