The three-page letter pictured here (with names blotted out in the interest of privacy) came from one of the families cared for by the James 1:27 Trust. The family consists of five siblings who live in Stinkwater, a struggling rural community about an hour's drive north of Pretoria.
The children, the oldest of which was eighteen when they were introduced to the Trust through a local school, have lived on their own since their parents passed away from AIDS-related complications. Since then the Trust and a local partner have cared for the young family according to a customized care plan that was developed to address their specific challenges and put them in position to succeed in their future. The care plan addressed nutrition, psycho-social health, educational counselling, skills training, and discipleship.
The James 1:27 Trust is developing software resources to help organizations like our partner in Stinkwater to bring holistic care (care for spirit, soul, and body) to thousands of vulnerable children in South Africa. By partnering with us, you are a big part of the difference being made for children like those who've written this thank you note to us.
