Awakening Dormant Strength

2020 has brought opportunity for new depths of resilience discovery in all of us. I’m not sure challenges make us stronger as much as awaken dormant strength that’s already there.

Every year through friendship, entrepreneurship, and education opportunities, we have historically served about 50 families living in East Java cemeteries. Then COVID-19 came and things changed. Since the lock-down restrictions this spring, we have served 450 more through relief food distribution. Keeping in step with government regulations and social distancing measures, CF centers in East Java are actively engaging teens in the cemetery through one-to-one mentoring and small group academic sessions. 

In addition to food and supplies, our team has been distributing activity packets to children in lock-down conditions throughout cemetery communities in East Java. Sometimes it’s the little things. Thank you for your on-going support of this very vulnerable and resilient community.
