3rd Annual Adoption Walk-a-thon
Here in South Korea and around the world, children who are abandoned by their parents are often times placed in government funded housing. These homes are overfilled and understaffed. The children in these homes do not recieve the care they need; they are starving for touch and love There is a huge need for churches and families to give of their time, resources and homes to care for the orphans around the world.
Many of these children go unnoticed and uncared for. They don't have anyone visiting them, and they hardly get attention from their busy care-taker. Our hope with the Rice Paddy Relay is to bring awareness to Orphans here in South Korea. Please join us by letting everyone in your circle of firends know that you are Walking or Running the Rice Paddy Relay. Tell them why you think it is important and then invite them to join you. With your help we can bring awareness to the need of these children.
There are many families who want to help one of these children find a home, but the cost can be a road block. Adoption cost around the world average $30,000. These families need help to cover the cost. With the Rice Paddy Relay, we are not only raising awareness for Orphans in Korea and around the world, we are also raising money to support those families that need additional funds to complete their adoption. Get people to sponsor you with donations for your walk or run. All funds raised will go to the SCBC Adoption Fund to help support adopting families
