Transform and be Transformed: Together with the Migrant Community in Yunnan
[ ‘SHARE’ Jul-Aug 2015 ] STEP INTO THE WORLD
In Baoshan city of Yunnan province, about 70 families of the Lisu ethnic minority live on Gangding Mountain, which is about 128 kilometres from the city. All of them, approximately 440 people in total including children, are Christians. Their living is never easy because they have no proper household registration (hukuo) and they do not speak Chinese.
Since 2012, CEDAR has been partnering with two Christian churches in Yunnan to provide language education and free medical consultation to the Lisu ethnic minority. Starting from 2014, we have also launched a three-year integrated community development project, which aims at strengthening the community’s self-sufficiency and improving their lives in different aspects such as healthcare, child nutrition, language education, water, agriculture and husbandry, as well as disaster prevention.
In this April, a group of brothers and sisters from Mong Kok Baptist Church, who has joined CEDAR’s Global Discipleship Programme, went to Yunnan to learn about the situation particularly the needs of the Lisu ethnic group. After the visit, they made a commitment to support this group in developing their community and improving their living.
Today, over 30,000 people of the Lisu ethnic minority live in the mountains of Baoshan city and Dehong Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan province. Please support our ministries in Yunnan, together we can create opportunities to transform their lives. Your donation can contribute to the followings:
- HK$200 can provide nutritious lunch to two Lisu children for one whole month
- HK$450 can help one Lisu family to learn and practice plantation and husbandry
- HK$1030 can provide a one-off free medication consultation in a village including body check and basic medication
