Covid-19 Emergency Food Support for Nepal and Mexico

Name of Fund: Covid-19 Emergency Food Support for Nepal and Mexico

Who and Why We Support

Recently, a steady increase of field-workers located in Ensenada and Nepal have lost their jobs due to the current Covid-19 lockdown. This sudden change has called for unprecedented times,as many families can no longer afford to buy food and go hungry. In an effort to help these families, it is proposed to raise money to buy essential food and deliver to those who need it.

Fundraising Goals

●Mexico – $4,800
Provide $60 worth of food for each family that is in need. The food is enough for a 4-people family to survive for 2 weeks. We are planning to support 20 families for each of the 4 churches that our mission teams are involved with – 2 church in Ensenada and 2 churches in San Telmo. Total of 80 families will receive food.
● Nepal – $4,800 (It is similar to Mexico. This money is enough to provide food for 80 families for two weeks)
Provide rice money for the Pastor and Gospel Workers families, and for them to distribute rice among the church members who are starving. We are reaching the Nepalese and also the Tibetans. Pastor KC will contact them to see the need.

Mary’s Kitchen

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Grace and Peace! Having heard of Apostle Paul’s flourishing ministry operated by the grace of the Lord to the gentiles, the early church leaders James, Peter and John requested in unison only one thing. What is that essential one thing still needed to an already anointed and grace filled ministry? The answer is found in Galatians 2:10, which is simply to remember the poor. Apostle Paul would passionately affirm that remembering and caring for the poor is “the very thing I was eager to do”. During this challenging time,food pantry in many places have received fewer donations while seeing double or triple the number of individuals and families in need. Like Paul, many of you have generously expressed the same eagerness in wanting to contribute and assist those in need within our community.
We are grateful to invite you to such an opportunity as we partner with Mary’s Kitchen ( http://maryskitchen.org ), a Christian organization that lovingly provides services and feeds the homeless and needy in the city of Orange. It is an ongoing ministry supported by multiple churches in Orange
County. Recently, Mary’s Kitchen has made a request for the following items:

  • Individual packaged nonperishable snack that does not require refrigeration nor use of a spoon. These may include small bags of chips, cookies, various snack bars, and similar items.
  • Individual sized water bottles, Gatorades, juice boxes.
  • Individual packaged coffee creamer.
  • Gift cards of $10 – $20 to common fast food restaurants such as McDonald’s and Del Taco.
  • Face Masks

Additionally for the month of May, request has been made to gather at least 200 notes or cards with words of encouragement, prayer, and/or scripture. Adults and children are welcome to participate in the writing of the notes and cards. Feel free to be creative with addition of designs and drawings in these notes and cards (size no bigger than a standard 8.5 x 11 inch paper folded in half). Mary’s Kitchen volunteers will use these items we donate, including the written notes and cards, to pack into lunch bags for the needy.
Collection of above food items will start this week until June 24. Collection of notes and cards will also start this week, but end on May 15. There are 2 locations with listed days/times for drop off:

  • 1) EFCI on Wednesdays 9-11 AM and Fridays 10-11 AM. Please enter through office entrance adjacent to Armstrong Street and drop off the items in Room 103.
  • 2) South Irvine Location off Sand Canyon Ave on Wednesdays and Fridays 6-9 PM. Please email Local Mission Deacon Samantha Chu [davidnsamantha33@gmail.com] for information on address.

For your and everyone’s safety, we ask that the purchasing of these items be made as part of your shopping routine rather than making extra trips to the store. All seniors are recommended to remain sheltering in place. In accordance with CDC safety guideline, we request during drop off that everyone wear face covering, maintain at least 6 feet of distancing, immediately leave premise after drop off and not to congregate.
