As the 2015 year comes to an amazing end, the work of the Han Schneider Foundation still continues for vulnerable children worldwide. Year end giving is a great way to receive tax deductions for 2015 while also making a significant impact on the children we serve in North Korea, Cambodia, and Tanzania.
Our goal: To raise $3,000 by year's end to fund our Balang preschool for the entire year of 2016. Forty children in Cambodia will have a safe haven to learn and receive daily meals with your generous contribution. Join us in making a one-time donation of $250 or becoming a $20 monthly sponsor and witness the results of how your compassion pays off.
Reflection: While many of us knew that our hard work and effort would be life-changing, no one could have ever expected the impact these precious kids would have on our hearts. Hear the stories below by some of our mission team members who embarked on this heroic journey to Cambodia:
"One specific incident sticks out: As we were putting the finishing touches on the school, a young boy who had been hanging around all week gained the courage to come up to me and in what little English he knew said â€œThank you for my new school.â€ This trip only lasted 10 days but I realized the huge benefits this school would have on the community and the generations to come."
- Johnny Lin, Team Member
"At the end of the trip, the children who would be attending the school loaded in to a van and were saying their goodbyes. I told them that I loved them and weâ€™d be back. Next, every one of those children stuck their heads out the window and repeatedly said â€œI love youâ€ as they waved goodbye. It was such an emotional experience that I had to turn my head so they wouldnâ€™t see my eyes welling up. Itâ€™s moments like these that remind us that of the impact of the love we put out into this world has, especially those down and out."
