HOPE IN THE CAMP
Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees crammed into improvised huts made of plastic sheets. Here we are on a medical mission, together with our partner we bring hope to the camp - real hope that only Jesus can give.
A WAY OUT OF MISERY
Since 2009, our elementary school in a Muslim slum in Dhaka has been enabling children to escape from misery thanks to an above-average school education. The local church additionally provides the kids with love, food and clothing.
»Life in Myanmar was unbearable for us, so my parents left the country with us. I accepted the Christian faith 14 years ago. Since then, I have been doing everything I can to bring the Gospel to my people. I care a lot about translating the Bible into the language of us Rohingya.«
