  3. 3. CAUSELIFE YOU UNDERSTAND THE NEED FOR CLEAN WATER Today, nearly one billion people still lack access to clean water, and 3.4 million die every year as a result—details you understand on a personal level. You have seen the children, families, and communities that represent these statistics, but you have refused to let them remain simply statistics. Your personal intervention in the global water crisis has translated into dozens of water projects all around the world—touching thousands. What a powerful legacy of your commitment to meet foundational needs. This year, the annual Kingdom Partners Golf Tournament raised $80,659 to help provide clean water to villages in Uganda, India, and Guatemala. Additionally, this year’s 3rd annual Turkey Trot saw over 1,000 participants and $40,000 raised. YOU’RE CHANGING THE TODAY 2012 IMPACT REPORT | 4 OF COUNTLESS INDIVIDUALS WHILE INVESTING IN THEIR TOMORROWS. 2012 TURKEY TROT Along with these incredible events, World Help was also encouraged to see participation on an individual scale. We were excited to hear that one of your members was using his birthday as a platform to promote causelife— raising an inspiring $20,000 to provide clean water! BY GIVING CLEAN WATER,
  5. 5. OPERATION BABY RESCUE Children have always been at the center of Kingdom Partners’ giving, and we couldn’t be more inspired by your compassion. This year, you gave nearly $130,000 to rescue dying children in Guatemala, Uganda, and Haiti. Because infant abandonment in Uganda is alarmingly high, World Help is thrilled about opening a chapter of Operation Baby Rescue there. Already, there are 10 children living at the newly completed baby dorm on the campus of Destiny School. And as always, our program in Guatemala is coming to the rescue of hundreds of children living in the terrifying balance between life and death. The value of Kingdom Partners’ decision to support Operation Baby Rescue around the world is immeasurable. 2012 IMPACT REPORT | 6 We see these children as future leaders of families, communities, and countries. And we know you do too. YOUR GIFTS TO OPERATION BABY RESCUE HAVE GIVEN CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD A SECOND CHANCE AT LIFE. SUNDSTROMS VISITING THE CETNER YOUR SUPPORT CAN NEVER BE MEASURED
  6. 6. GUATEMALA In a nation where 51 percent of the population lives in extreme poverty, your financial gifts to improve and care for the infrastructure of Guatemala could not be more meaningful. It’s a place characterized by hunger, underdevelopment, high disability rates, marginalized education, limited water sources, and an unpromising economy. But because of you, this is changing. ONCE AGAIN, YOU HELPED MEET THE DEEPEST NEEDS OF THOUSANDS OF GUATEMALANS IN 2012. You invested in the care and education of hundreds of orphans. You gave to help poor farmers provide food and income 2012 IMPACT REPORT | 8 for their families. You funded new water systems throughout rural communities. You built homes for impoverished families. You enabled the rescue of children dying from malnutrition. And most important, you built foundations that will allow generations of Guatemalan people to experience futures of health and hope. Together, we are leaving a legacy of transformation in the nation of Guatemala. PRESENTING A FAMILY WITH A NEW HOME YOU ARE CHANGING THE VERY FUTURE OF GUATEMALA
  7. 7. ST. LUKE’S HOSPITAL ST. LUKE’S WILL SAVE THE LIVES OF THOUSANDS The completion of St. Luke’s Hospital will be a landmark for Kingdom Partners. Over the past several years, you have been heavily involved in aiding this facility. In 2012, the lower floors received their finishing touches and several of your members attended the dedication of their official launch. When the entire building is complete, it will serve thousands of Guatemalans—from children to the elderly. THIS HOSPITAL MEANS AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT WAY OF The hospital is equipped with an emergency room, outpatient clinic, children’s ward, maternity ward, operating rooms, quarantine rooms, men’s and women’s wards, and an ambulance facility. Along with the surrounding communities, children from the nearby Special-Needs Home and Baby Rescue Center will also experience superior treatment and renewed health through this facility. In many cases, emergency medical attention is needed for these children. The immediate access to this quality of care will save thousands of lives! AND BEYOND . . . A NEW STANDARD OF CARE THAT WILL DRIVE DEVELOPMENT IN THIS REMOTE REGION. 2012 IMPACT REPORT | 10 HOSPITAL DEDICATION LIFE FOR THOSE IN THE AREA
  9. 9. PERU YOUR WORK IN PERU MEANS BOTH HELP AND HOPE World Help is thankful that Kingdom Partners is joining us in new and exciting opportunities in Peru this year. It’s a nation where 1 in every 3 girls is abused, and you have identified with their hurt. You committed to ease the pain of these young women by helping fund Grace Home, a facility for victims of self-harm, eating disorders, and sexual abuse. It’s the first of its kind in a country where so many women are desperate for healing . . . and hope. You have taken your involvement even further by helping distribute Bibles and provide wheelchairs to children suffering from paralyzing birth defects and injuries. These gifts may seem simple, but to the individuals who receive them, they’re enough to change life as they know it. In Peru, you’re empowering and embodying all that World Help stands for—you’re giving both help and hope!

  11. 11. INDIA YOUR GIVING IN INDIA HAS IMPACTED EVERY AREA OF LIFE Your advocacy for Indian children began years ago and continues today to make a long-term impact—a strategic move in the nation’s very future. YOU HAVE GIVEN TO AID CHILDREN IMPACTED BY THE SEX TRADE, ABANDONMENT, AIDS, LEPROSY, PERSECUTION, EXTREME POVERTY, AND THE SUBSEQUENT EMOTIONAL CONSEQUENCES. Your gifts have also helped provide a medical clinic for the Gilgal Children’s Home—a facility that has been desperately needed. For years, they have relied only on basic medical facilities to care for the entire student body. 2012 IMPACT REPORT | 14 Our partner explained that typhoid outbreaks were nearly impossible to stop, but with immediate medical access, the health of the children will improve dramatically! In Jaipur, India, more than 200 students at the Maru Asha School have been blessed by their new clean-water well. The existing water source was inadequate for the rapidly growing student population, but now there is enough water for the school to offer to local villagers! Over the years, your gifts to Maru Asha have been an overwhelming relief in Jaipur. Students from preschool to eighth grade are receiving an education they never expected to have. Not only do they have access to a quality education, but daily spiritual development as well. In a region so desperate for development, this means more than 200 children have the resources needed to escape poverty.
  13. 13. UGANDA Your efforts in Uganda continue to empower the next generation through education, healthcare, and spiritual development. As an entire generation of “Forgotten Children”— child survivors of the civil war—begin their own families, your support of the Gulu Vocational School is more crucial than ever. This facility is revolutionizing the lives of young adults, parents, and their families through the equipping of specialized skills. With your help, the congregation of Saints Gate Church in Katwe, Uganda, continues construction on their new church building. Your support has been a special encouragement to them, and they are excited about using their building to bless their own community. We’re also excited to announce the ongoing success of the medical clinic and new baby dorm on the campus of Destiny School. These facilities are working hand in hand to 2012 IMPACT REPORT | 16 ensure that abandoned and malnourished infants have the care they need for complete restoration. These projects would not achieve the outreach they do without your current involvement. KINGDOM PARTNERS’ INVOLVEMENT IN UGANDA IS PAVING THE WAY TOWARD LASTING HEALTH FOR THOUSANDS. AISHA IN THE NEW BABY DORM WITHOUT YOU, OUR PROJECTS IN UGANDA WOULD NOT HAVE THE IMPACT THEY DO TODAY
  14. 14. NEPAL YOU HAVE BROUGHT THE GOSPEL TO HUNDREDS IN RURAL NEPAL In a country that is more than 80 percent Hindu and 10 percent Buddhist, Kingdom Partners’ involvement in our Nepali programs is critical. Your giving toward multiple children’s homes has meant that hundreds of Nepali children— many of them orphans—have a safe, nurturing environment where they are raised with an understanding of the foundational truths of Christ. some cases, violence. Your presence has been a vital encouragement to so many of these individuals. By giving to support church planting, leadership training opportunities, youth programs, and evangelism, you are directly working to bring the heart of the Gospel to Nepal—all while providing spiritual support to existing believers. THIS HAS BEEN A TRYING YEAR YOUR SUPPORT HAS NEVER BEEN MORE CRUCIAL. Many are targeted for their faith—our partners are no exception—and hundreds have experienced extreme ostracism, and in 2012 IMPACT REPORT | 18 ABHINAS CHILDREN’S HOME FOR NEPALI BELIEVERS, AND
  15. 15. HAITI YOUR GIVING TO HAITI IS RESTORING DAMAGED LIVES Every effort in Haiti counts more than we could know. Three years after the earthquake that killed 316,000 and displaced millions, the country is still reeling in internal chaos. Danita’s Children is working to transform malnourished children and those affected by abject poverty. This year, you helped us ship eight containers of humanitarian aid to desperate individuals. Items like food supplements, clothing, medicine and medical supplies, educational materials, and sports equipment are making an incredible difference in the lives of thousands of Haitians. THE BENEFITS OF YOUR GIVING Your giving toward the Hope for Haiti Children’s Home, school, and medical clinic has also meant health for earthquake orphans and more.

You have helped us ship 32 containers of food to these people. Together, we have literally saved the lives of thousands of starving children and families. YOUR PARTNERSHIP IN KENYA IS BREAKING NEW GROUND FOR FUTURES FULL OF PROMISE. Our partners distributed aid to 12 schools— impacting 2,768 students overall—120 widows, families with acutely malnourished children, teenage mothers, and more. With this aid, our partners were also able to establish a temporary feeding program. 2012 IMPACT REPORT | 22 The WEEP Unity Centre in the Kibera slum continues to thrive because of your committed involvement. Currently, you’re investing in more than 50 children attending this preschool who receive daily nutrition and a quality education through your support, like Walter. At only 4 years old, Walter shows intelligence beyond his age. After his mother passed away, Walter and his three siblings were left in the care of their father who struggled to feed them. Schooling was not an option for Walter until he was given the opportunity to attend the WEEP Unity Centre. Today, he receives daily meals and an education—transforming his future. KIBERA SCHOOL CHILDREN YOUR EFFORTS IN KENYA ARE SAVING LIVES
  18. 18. HONDURAS FOR THOSE WITH NOTHING, YOU HAVE RESTORED HOPE After a severe tropical storm destroyed the homes of multiple families in Honduras, you stepped in to restore protection. Their homes—most of them shelters made of wood and packed mud—were easily destroyed, beyond any hope of recovery. Overnight, these individuals lost everything they owned. And without any means to rebuild, they faced complete exposure. But in their hour of need, you gave them renewed hope. You also gave to help a children’s program in Honduras that is caring for those trapped in abject poverty. In 2012, the staff of Jesus, Friend of the Children were able to make necessary repairs to their storm-damaged daycare facility with this support. They are so thankful for your involvement and the impact you have chosen to make on the children of Honduras. “THANK GOD THERE ARE PEOPLE SENSITIVE TO THESE NEEDS. [THIS IS] A DREAM COME TRUE!” —OUR NATIONAL PARTNER 2012 IMPACT REPORT | 24 JESUS, FRIEND OF THE CHILDREN Today, eight families have new homes that protect them from the heat, cold, and other dangerous elements.

From covert Bible distribution in closed countries to church planting in the dangerous slopes of the Himalayas, your work is being manifested in the spiritual awakening of thousands—an eternal legacy. THIS YEAR, YOU GAVE TO SUPPORT THE DISTRIBUTION OF 14,225 BIBLES TO PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS, NEW BELIEVERS, AND THOSE WHO HAVE NEVER HEARD THE NAME OF JESUS! 2012 IMPACT REPORT | 26 To date, you have helped provide Bibles to Cuba, North Korea, China, Iran, Iraq, Haiti, Russia, and Vietnam. Your continued giving toward the housechurch movement in Cuba and China is equipping our partners to share the Gospel like never before. World Help’s church-planting programs saw more than 25,000 Cubans become Christ followers and over 1,000 new house churches planted! And in China, our partners report impressive growth and outreach from each of their new church plants. This is an exciting time for spiritual growth and World Help is thrilled to partner with you as thousands are responding to the message of the Gospel.
