The newest additions to the CRC’s Child Support Program are 20 children who live in Fengehun Village, about 25 kilometres from Bo. The Mercy Hospital Outreach team holds a clinic in Fengehun each month, and now CRC staff make the trip as well, in order to conduct school and home visits.
The staff recently conducted a workshop and letter event for children in the village. Parents, pupils and teachers were present at this meeting. Topics included CRC activities, benefits of the program, the role of parents and teachers in monitoring their children and helping with their studies, commitments of parents and community, and alternative forms of discipline.
At the end of the workshop, the students wrote to their sponsors.
