MOBLISING THE CHURCH FOR CARE-GIVING

MOBLISING THE CHURCH FOR CARE-GIVING

by

Oum Vutha and Rosalie Thompson, Innerchange Sunrise Program

In 2001 CRM/ InnerCHANGE started SUNRISE, a home based care program for HIV/AIDS clients, in response to God's call: To minister holistically to those with HIV/AIDS in Kompong Cham city, by rising up and equipping local church leaders and laity to model the love and restoration of Jesus Christ, through Word and deed. Sunrise was started when it was found there was a need for people who were poor, and had no one to care for them while dying from AIDS. It was called Sunrise because of the scripture in Luke 1:78-79…which says the rising of the sun will shine on those living in the shadow of death. The aim is to love, care and nurture the poor within the city and to give respite care to those who have no one to care for them at home. Read the article
