Will you join Nazarene Compassionate Ministries for an exclusive dinner event to support the Shechem Children’s Home as we raise $200,000 in gifts and pledges to fund the home for five years?
On any given day at the Shechem Children’s Home in the Philippines, you’re likely to find the children who live there playing basketball. One eight-year-old girl says she wants to play professionally. Another girl, age 14, hopes to become a singer.
The children at Shechem didn’t always think about the future, though. All of them are survivors of OSEC—the online sexual exploitation of children. Many of them were exploited for years before they were rescued. With that history, it can be hard for them to imagine a world that has any kind of hope at all.
The Shechem Children’s Home is an assessment center, which means children live there for a period of months while they begin to recover. It’s during that time the staff seeks to instill hope, or pag-asa.
Tuesday, the 3rd of December at 6:30pm
Dinner will be a specially-selected spin on Southeast Asian food prepared by Chef Rick Mullins.
The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art on the Historic Kansas City Plaza
