Pastors Trip to Cambodia

RodneyRascona2013_Cambodia_MG_0165Cambodians face these challenges every day…

  • High risk of waterborne illnesses.
  • 41 percent of the children have stunted growth.
  • Thousands are trafficked across the border to Thailand each year.

After years of war, Cambodians are working to rebuild trust in communities and build support systems that protect children. But Cambodians still need our help.

God is working through Food for the Hungry (FH) and partners like you to tackle the root causes of spiritual and physical hungers by empowering community members.

We do this in Cambodia by training parents in how to grow and sell crops, manage money in savings groups and boosting children’s education. We’ve also had the opportunity to train leaders on trafficking prevention  and leadership development.

If you are a pastor, or know of a pastor, looking for a global partner to work in Cambodia, join FH from September 1 – 6,  for a trip to Cambodia.This trip gives pastors the opportunity to learn about and grow in God’s love for people who live in poverty and develop a deeper understanding of the complex nature of transformation.

About Heidi Heinrich

Heidi Heinrich, church relationship manager for Food for the Hungry's community-to-community (C2C) program, got her start with Food for the Hungry as a volunteer. She began promoting child sponsorship after being incredibly moved to "just do something" about the poverty she had seen while serving internationally on a team. A mother of two adult children who are pursuing their life's work in serving the poor, Heidi attributes their passion to the impression made through child sponsorship. "It has been a journey." she says, "It all began by sponsoring a child in Bangladesh that led to serving on a team. I am very grateful for the experiences God has given me through sponsorship." She also enjoys art and music, and she is finishing her degree in Human Development through Hope International University.
