Newlife Care | December 2019

Dear Newlife Family,

The month of December and the Advent Season have both started and the Newlife Care Christmas Project is in full swing.

We have packed the 550 hampers of Christmas food and some of the approximately 4,000 gifts to be delivered, with prayers and love.
The first of the hampers and gifts have been collected and will be delivered to families in need in the lead up to Christmas.
The generosity of our Newlife Family continues to be a blessing to those doing it tough in our local community. This year you have sponsored more than 600 hampers … THANK YOU!!

The surplus funds from the Christmas Hamper Appeal will be used to purchase additional gifts and to support the Newlife Care Emergency Food Service throughout 2020.

To you and your families, have a wonderful and blessed Christmas.

Rob Collins

Student Sponsorship

Newlife Missions: Poipet, Cambodia

Tertiary educated people can help transform communities, but we need your help to see this happen in Cambodia. We are hoping to find some new sponsors to support a couple of our recently graduated high school students who have been accepted into university.

By way of background, university classes in Cambodia take place on the weekends and the sponsored university students will find work on weekdays to also help towards covering the costs associated with their university studies. The income they receive, though, does not completely cover their university costs (and travel), not to mention other adult life costs they may now encounter. Additionally, their parents are not really in a position to financially support their studies – in fact the students may face the expectation that they must contribute some of their income to their families, even while studying at university.

University student sponsorship helps to cover a portion of their university fees and their travel to university (which is one hour away by bus). The cost for the 2019/20 university year is $100/month (or $1,200/year). While it is our preference that sponsors cover this full amount, we are very happy to facilitate shared sponsorship where you and another sponsor contribute half of this amount each. If you decide to commit to any level of financial support, we ask that you do so for the whole of the student’s University degree (an estimated three-four years). We ask a similar commitment of the student too – he and his parents or guardian will sign a declaration to show their commitment to his studies, as is the case during primary and secondary schooling.

If you have any questions about university student sponsorship, or would like to begin sponsoring one of our university students in Cambodia, please contact Lana via email ([email protected]) or phone (0405 450 453).

The 2019 Newlife are Charity Golf Day was held on Friday, 17 May 2019 and it was a great success raising over $9,000 for the work of Newlife Care in our local community.

There was some great golf and some not so great golf and a lot of fun was had by the sponsors and the players.

A special thanks must go to our Major Corporate Sponsor Armstrong Financial Planning, Robina and to our Corporate Hole Sponsors Beachsea Property Investment Specialists, ONGC, Magellan Asset Management Limited and Pengana Capital.
