The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our world and has changed how AMG International meets the deepest needs of those in the 37 countries we serve. For example, our partners in the Philippines prepare weekly food packs for the children in our sponsorship program to help feed them, their siblings, and their parents who are out of work due to the quarantine and country lockdowns.
AMG Philippines has been sending home learning packets to children’s parents since 2011, but they were not well received until schools shut down earlier this year. These packets have become essential resources to help our sponsored children as they adapt to learning at home. Our child and youth development centers are now hosting classes for parents, many of whom are illiterate, to better prepare them to teach their children at home, so they do not fall behind in their studies. Because of this, many families in our programs are seeing growth in their relationships with each other and with God. Even during these hard times, our Lord is working!
Thank you for your faithful generosity in supporting the ministries of AMG International during this challenging time. If you are in a position to do so, please prayerfully consider making a special one-time gift to AMG to help bridge the gap caused by the recent sharp decline in donations to the ministry. Needs around the world are increasing while gifts are decreasing. Your special gift will allow AMG to help meet those growing needs during this unusual season.
