Diocesan appeal for $20,000+ to keep the Mirpurkhas Hostel in Pakistan open.
One of our mission partners has asked for our help. Their hostel in the Hyderabad Diocese will close unless they can raise $20,000+.
The mission of the Diocese of Hyderabad, Church of Pakistan is to uplift, support and empower the marginalized communities of Sindh, Pakistan, in order to express the word of God in love and deed. The Diocesan Hostel Programme has been very significant in the Diocese in serving marginalized students from remote areas. Via the hostels students have been able to access schooling which otherwise is not available to them, and through the hostel programme the students also develop life and leadership skills.
It would be life changing for these students to be able to complete their studies. Our Diocesan mission colleague writes: “If they cannot return to school or college now they will never complete their basic qualifications which the diocese has been supporting them towards, many since they were just 6 years old. This means options for livelihood are very limited (probably manual labour in a landlord’s fields), compounded by the challenge of increasing numbers out of work in these days. “

Thank you for your consideration of this opportunity to support the last, the least and the lost in another corner of God’s vineyard.
