Adonai Child Rehabilitation (ACR) is a Christian faith-based ministry in Myanmar that was established on May 20, 2016. This ministry creates a place of rehabilitation for children and teenagers from various backgrounds like orphans, unwanted children, street children, and poor children. We are partnering with them to help provide nutritious food for their 11 orphans this year, as well as some other basic necessities like school supplies, clothing, and bedding.
Thanks to our donors, Henry and Lisa Chang and Grandma Chu's Love Fund, our fundraising goal for ACR this year has already been met!
Leader's Background and Vision
The ministry is led by Rev. Thang, from Kalaymyo, Myanmar. He shares his story.
I was born in 1977. I am married and have 3 children, 2 sons and a daughter. I am serving in a Christian organization which mainly focuses on helping young people and children from any tribe and religion. Since 2002, I have been working among children and youth as the Lord has given me a passion to reach orphans and street children. My heart was broken to see many of the orphans, street children, children who are abandoned by their own parents, children and teenagers who are physically abused and subjected to human trafficking, and children who sink into drug addiction.
Administration and Daily Schedule
Mainly my wife and I stay with the children full time. We talk with them, play with them, and give them a chance to share what they like and how they feel. We have one volunteer warden who is an experienced warden, and we hired another woman for cooking. Out of the 7 days in a week, we provide meat (beef, chicken, and fish) three times. On the rest of the days, we feed them vegetables, eggs, and beans.
From Monday through Friday the children attend school. In the morning from 6-7 AM, we have devotions and Bible reading. At 7 AM we give them breakfast of fried rice and tea, and at about 8 AM we send them school, which is a full day. At noon about 12:30, there is a break time for one hour. The school dismisses at 3:30 PM. Play time is between 4:00 - 4:30 PM. Bathing time is 7:30 AM and 4:30 PM. We give them dinner at 5:30 PM. And in the evening from 6-7 PM is worship time. From 7-9 PM our warden leads them in their assignments and studies from what they have learned at school.
