NazCare exists to support both local and international projects.
One of our main forms of work is Child Sponsorship, through our connection with Nazarene Compassionate Ministries.
Child sponsorship gives children the opportunity to attend school, have access to healthcare, hot meals, help with homework; whatever is needed in that community. We focus on holistic child development, which means caring for the whole child - physically, relationally and spiritually. As well as meeting everyday needs, we commit to introducing children to Jesus and helping them grow in His love.
NazCare connects children with their sponsors. Through sending letters and cards, the child and their sponsor have the opportunity to form a bond which transcends language and culture. Child sponsorship truly changes lives and gives a child the chance to experience the love of Jesus, through the love of others.
Because of the generosity of our child sponsors, NazCare currently supports children from Asia, Central and South America, Africa and the Caribbean.
When disaster strikes, we must come together to respond.
NazCare connects with the immediate responders and is an avenue through which you can give financially, both for short-term relief and long-term recovery.
Through Nazarene Compassionate Ministries, NazCare is able to support projects all around the world.
In the past year, supporters have given generously to many projects including:
The Centre ministers to handicapped and disabled children and their families in the name of Christ.
Among other disabilities, a large number of children in Tonga are born with cerebral palsy and island families face great challenges in dealing with the effect.
The vision of the Mango Tree Respite Centre is to help provide care for these and other handicapped children and their families, many of whom can lead full lives if there is intervention.
Water is essential to basic living, hygiene, food, security, and health. A water well in a village is a blessing like dew in the morning, like rain in the desert, like a cool refreshment for a thirsty tongue.
It provides essential drinking water and hygiene, prevents sickness, and is the basis for successful farming and food security, especially during times of little rain. A well in a village can help keep women and children from having to walk long distances and carry heavy weights every day.
Each year, NCM tries to build at least 10 new wells across the African continent, to bring clean water to the people of Africa.
