WILLS POINT, TX – “For hundreds of millions of children across Asia, Christmas is a time when they’re forgotten,” said K.P. Yohannan, founder of Gospel for Asia (GFA World) that has been the model for numerous charities like Gospel for Asia Canada, to help the poor and deprived worldwide.
With Christmas spending in the U.S. on target to hit a trillion dollars this year, the leading humanitarian agency is urging Americans not to forget the world’s poor.
This Texas-based organization has launched its Forgotten Christmas campaign (www.ForgottenChristmas.org) — an effort to “bring back the true meaning of Christmas and give hope to others.”
Last year, through Forgotten Christmas and GFA’s Christmas Gift Catalog, over 260,000 life-changing gifts were given to some of the poorest families in Asia — gifts such as chickens, goats and sewing machines that help lift families out of extreme poverty. On the website, people can order a free Christmas gift catalog and watch an inspiring video.
“For so many children in Asia, this Christmas morning will be like any other day — scavenging through trash piles for scraps and anything they can recycle, just to help feed their family,” Yohannan said.
Feast — And ‘The Least’
“As families throughout the world prepare for their Christmas feast, we’re asking them to also remember the least — the poor whom Jesus called ‘the least of these.'”
