OUR AIM IS TO CARE AND REACH THOSE IN NEED

You are a somebody because God loves you and He never wastes His time to make a nobody. You were made by God, He has a plan for your life, there is nobody else on earth like you, you are unique, one of a kind, you are special, special to us and special to God.

You are designed for accomplishment, engineered for success and endowed with the seeds of greatness. You were born to win, born to achieve. You are the apple of your Father's eye, Jesus loves you.

You are needed, you are loved, God needs you to accomplish through you His plan of love to reach out and touch somebody for Him. You can do it, you are a world overcomer, this is the victory that overcomes the world even our faith that God has placed in our heart.

You are valuable, don't fear, don't worry the best is yet to come because better is the end of a thing than its beginning.

Why we Do it?

Matthew 25:35-40 (NiV)

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'

37"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'


40"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'

What is the problem?

  • The aged, 'singles' and the 'working poor' have become the new battlers in Australia.
  • 11% of Australian adults and 12% of children live in poverty, and the numbers are growing.
  • 2.2 million Australians don't have enough money to take care of basic needs such as housing, clothing and food.

  • 13% of Australian children live in jobless households
  • In Australia up to a million children don't always get enough to eat

    Hunger is a largely hidden social problem and many victims suffer in silence. The victims could be a child, unemployed or elderly person in your street.

    Each year, two million Australians will rely on food relief and around half of them will be children. These children will often go to school without breakfast, or to bed without dinner.
