‘SHARE’ 252 – Macedonian Call

Written by Clara Chiu (Head of Partnership Development) Over the past 30 years, CEDAR has continued to support poverty alleviation programmes in more than 40 countries worldwide to transform poor communities and improve the lives of the poor from the vastness of God’s grace. However, apart from the guidance of the Lord, human responsibility is also indispensable. To present the best to the Lord, CEDAR has been careful with the initiation of the projects. At the same time, we are entrusted by our donors to make the best use of our resources so that we can fulfil our duty of helping the poor and the needy worthwhile. Two Main Project Categories: Humanitarian Relief and Community Development CEDAR’s projects

Care for the Impoverished Body Parts

Written by Tony Chan (Senior Communications Officer) Scriptures reading: 哥林多前書十二12-26 12就如身子是一個,卻有許多肢體;而且肢體雖多,仍是一個身子;基督也是這樣。13我們不拘是猶太人,是希臘人,是為奴的,是自主的,都從一位聖靈受洗,成了一個身體,飲於一位聖靈。14身子原不是一個肢體,乃是許多肢體。15設若腳說:「我不是手,所以不屬乎身子,」它不能因此就不屬乎身子。16設若耳說:「我不是眼,所以不屬乎身子,」它也不能因此就不屬乎身子。17若全身是眼,從哪裏聽聲呢?若全身是耳,從哪裏聞味呢?18但如今,上帝隨自己的意思把肢體俱各安排在身上了。19若都是一個肢體,身子在哪裏呢?20但如今肢體是多的,身子卻是一個。 21眼不能對手說:「我用不著你。」頭也不能對腳說:「我用不著你。」22不但如此,身上肢體人以為軟弱的,更是不可少的。23身上肢體,我們看為不體面的,越發給它加上體面;不俊美的,越發得著俊美。24我們俊美的肢體,自然用不著裝飾;但上帝配搭這身子,把加倍的體面給那有缺欠的肢體,25免得身上分門別類,總要肢體彼此相顧。26若一個肢體受苦,所有的肢體就一同受苦;若一個肢體得榮耀,所有的肢體就一同快樂。 1 Corinthians 12:12-26 12Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many. 15Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 16And if the ear should say, “Because

Run for the Poor

Written by Clara Chiu (Head of Partnership Development) I know Queenie through a marathon event. This year, CEDAR has participated in the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2024 ‘Marathon Charity Programme’ and obtained 50 quotas for the ‘10 km race (Non-Challenge Group)’. We invited our donors and friends to participate and donate to CEDAR to support local and Afghanistan children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and their families. Queenie is one of the participants. She learned about this event through her colleague and immediately signed up when her colleague asked for participants. Looking at her slender figure, I initially thought she was a regular joiner in running competitions. However, she said she seldom runs because she prefers playing

‘Giving Honour’ to SEN Children in Afghanistan

Written by Ken Wong (Communications Officer) This year, CEDAR Fund participated in the ‘Marathon Charity Programme’ to raise funds for local and Afghanistan children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and their families. SEN children face many challenges as they grow up, especially in developing countries, where their circumstances are particularly concerning. In response to the teachings of caring for the ‘less honourable’ body parts in this issue of ‘Back to the Bible’, I would like to share how CEDAR has helped SEN children in Afghanistan. Under the prolonged devastation of war, the people of Afghanistan have suffered various hardships: economic decline, extreme poverty, malnutrition, and a nearly collapsing public health system. Due to a severe lack of hygiene
