CCSM facilitate sponsorship for education of disadvantaged Chinese.
Around 2005, our CCSM International mercy work began to broaden. We started offering care to children living in very poor rural environments. These children were sometimes orphans, but not always. They were sometimes living with a parent, but often with a grandparent or a friend who had taken them in after a crisis.
There were so many stories of parents who had died, gone to jail or faced divorce and remarried but did not want the burden of a child in the new marriage. We began serving these children with a priority on helping them stay in school and gain an education that often their parents did not have.
"Twelve-year-old Mei Mei had been abandoned on the street as a baby. In spite of his low income as a manual odd-job labourer, Mei Mei’s adopted father, a Christian believer with a heart full of mercy and compassion, has raised her as his own daughter.
During our visit he proudly showed us photographs of the two of them together. They live together in a tiny cave dwelling. The walls of their three-square-metre home are covered with school awards that Mei Mei has earned. AM-CCSM’s sponsorship has enabled this bright student to continue with her schooling." – Mercy Co-worker
