Our name encapsulates our mission. It means we collectively represent Christ within our community. We are the hands and feet of Christ in our community. As a unifying force, we stand as the embodiment of Jesus’ love and compassion in action. Our aim is to work in partnership with organisations who hold our vision to foster empowerment and growth for those residing in economically challenged circumstances and improve the lives of people faced with depravity.
This is by supporting and creating opportunities within these communities. We are especially interested in supporting children and families which are at a disadvantage, as we believe stronger families build stronger communities.
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
Central to our focus is nurturing the potential of individuals from underprivileged backgrounds within these communities. Particularly, our hearts are dedicated to championing the cause of vulnerable children and families. We firmly believe that resilient families form the bedrock of thriving communities, and thus, we direct our energy towards fortifying these foundations.
