Christmas Gifts For Pakistani Kids

In case you don't know me, I am Arline Oliphint  in Phoenix, Arizona, on the opposite side of the globe from Pakistan. For several years I have been friends with a family in Pakistan who are giving their entire lives to making a difference in their community.

They are Christians in a Muslim nation, so they are looked at like lower class citizens. Life is very hard. But this family runs a school and helps minister in their church, too. Their heart is to serve the poor, the orphans and the widows in their community. I want to help them... and you can help, too.

You see, children in Pakistan do not have access to free public education the same way we do in America and many other nations. Many poor families in Pakistan cannot pay tuition for their children. Many children, especially girls, do not have the opportunity to go to school.

Some children don't go to school because they must work to help support their families. Some work in brick factories with their parents. Others work as household servants in homes of the more well-off families.

My Pakistani friend Amin Issac and his wife Ambreen have taken on the huge responsibility of running a licensed school that accepts many poor and orphan kids who cannot pay the tuition or even afford a uniform.

The school is always happy to accept donations that help to make education possible for these children. Amin is also responsible to raise funds for the Christian church that is closely connected to the school.

Now Christmas is coming, and I have created this GoFundMe page to help raise funds for the Christmas programs of the school and the church. I will let Amin tell you in his own words what is needed:


Dear brothers & sisters,

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ who is our Saviour Lord. My name is Amin Issac, Principal of Christ Public school. I am founder and chairman of Christ Public School PAKISTAN(Regd).

Dear brothers & sisters, I want to draw your attention towards my School Christmas programs. For three months our ministry has been facing financial crisis. Now we are worried about the up coming events and Christmas program of our school & church school. We are not in this position to continue our Program as usual.

We are praying to God to provide funds to do all these programs:

1) we give gifts to the School & Sunday school children.
2) we provide food packages to our widows of our church members.
3) we give Christmas Cake to our Church.

Total expenditure : 500 US Dollars.

Dear brothers and sisters, we have need of your prayers and your love gift for our School. We will pray for your long, happy and prosperous life.  Your financial help will be cause of great change in the Christian faith and
development of Pakistani School & church.

Your brother in Christ,
Amin Issac
Christ Public School Pakistan (Regd)


My goal is to reach at least $525, which will give Amin more than the $500 he needs, and will cover the Western Union fees.

Even if you can only donate $5.00 or $7.00 or $10.00, please do what you can.  Everything counts!  Thanks for your help.

God bless you!
