About the project

Tonga is a small country in the South Pacific.
In Tonga, the parents of the disabled children believe the disabilities are punishments from God for the parents' sin.
But to God, the disabled children in Tonga are “Hidden treasures.” To serve the hidden treasures, the Church of the Nazarene started the Mango Tree Centre ministry.

By demonstrating the love of Jesus, the Mango Tree Centre for People with Disabilities serves the disabled children who are isolated by their community. The centre also serves their families who are suffering under the shame and the guilt.
To serve them, we provide a holistic and family centered rehabilitation services like, Home Visit Care, Rehabilitative therapy, Computer class, Braille course, Mobility aids, House Renovation, Annual camp and Sponsorship Programs for their families.

Your donation will help disabled children overcome their disabilities by giving them opportunities of education and treatment. It will also give the families of the disabled children financial support and help them feel secure and have hope in God.
