Kris is a young boy in the first grade. He has two older, married siblings. Kris’ mother is a housewife, and his father works as a bricklayer. The work is seasonal and sometimes there are no jobs. Kris’ father sometimes supplements his income by looking for garbage to recycle. Even when work is available the family struggles for daily necessities. Kris and his family live in a small brick house in a crowded village close to the landfills. Your sponsorship will help Kris with nutritious meals, educational assistance, and teaching from God’s Word. Thank you!
Indonesia is a predominately Muslim country in Southeast Asia. Many work as farmers, but due to the uncertain climate it’s difficult for them to maintain their crops. Other common occupations include construction workers, freelancers, and house cleaners. Many of the families are poor and do not have the funds to pay for medical treatment. Multiple families have to live together in the same house a lot of the time. Many parents lack a formal education and get married young. Domestic violence is also prominent and husbands are prone to leave their families.
