Helping Kids in Kenya

HHICC FAMILY - YOU CAN HELP KIDS IN KENYA!
Pick up your BRICK BOX this Sunday in the Kids Ministry lobby and start collecting coins and dollars.

Together, Brick by Brick, we can change the lives of over 400 kids!

You probably already know Compassion as a trusted organization that works to rescue kids from poverty through child sponsorships and a variety of physical, social, economic, and spiritual development opportunities. But who interacts with these children on a daily basis to provide the support they so desperately need? In short, Compassion partners with local churches to create centers that address the specific needs of these kids and the broader needs of families and communities. While Compassion provides the resources, local church staff, and educators serve as the hands and feet of Jesus to kids and families.

That’s why we’re joining with Compassion International to raise support that will launch two brand-new Compassion centers in Kenya’s Rift Valley region. The funds we provide will help two existing churches build, repair and supply new spaces and programs to facilitate the physical, mental, and spiritual health of more than 400 kids . . . not to mention their families and communities. (That’s more than 3,500 additional individuals!) We’re talking everything from playground equipment and lunch dishes to desks, plumbing, windows, and doors.

Hilton Head Island Community Church is encouraging our families to support this wonderful mission through the Christmas Holiday. Beginning December 3rd, children can pick up a brick box to be filled with dollars and change throughout the month of December. Boxes are due back to the church by January 7th, 2018 so we can tally up the money and send it off to Compassion International!
