Cambodian Support Ministry
For the past seven years, St. John's has supported relief efforts in Cambodia through our Adopt a Cambodian Family Program.
We have provided stipends for food for between 20 and 30 carefully selected individuals or families in desperate need. More recently, our Seed Grant program has provided start-up funding to allow five or more poor, but capable, individuals or families the opportunity to begin supporting themselves with a small business, necessary tools or technical education.
Over the years, we have also sent money to help with flood relief, digging wells, and constructing an irrigation canal to serve poor farmers. A Cambodian New Year’s dinner gala held in March each year raises money for this ministry. Donations are gratefully received at any time. $15 provides money for food for a family for one month; $180 for the year.
