Jesuit Mission are encouraging us to give back for a chance to win a $5,000 shopping spree in their annual raffle prize draw.
By purchasing a raffle ticket, you can help children in refugee camps in Mae Hong Son, Thailand, to gain a quality primary and secondary education.
Many of these children and their families have fled brutal conflicts in Myanmar to arrive in Thailand with no documentation and little opportunity.
The Sustaining Education for Burmese Refugees program welcomes these children with open arms, and supports the funding of teacher salaries and training for both teachers and the community.
‘Your support of our annual raffle can bring opportunity and hope to children living in remote communities and give them the education that they deserve,’ says Helen Forde, CEO of Jesuit Mission.
Your support in purchasing tickets in Jesuit Mission’s raffle will help our vulnerable sisters and brothers overseas—those who are living in the margins, suffering the indignity of poverty and injustice.
All proceeds from the raffle go directly towards supporting at-risk communities in more than 10 countries in Asia and Africa, including Cambodia, Timor-Leste, India, Myanmar, Thailand, Malawi and more.
In each community, Jesuit Mission partners with local Jesuits and Jesuit organisations to provide a range of support and training that empowers women, men and children so they can build skills, capacity and resilience to live full and free lives.
For just $10, a raffle ticket purchase can help to transform communities in need. Purchase a ticket online or call (02) 8918 4109.
Entry is open to residents of NSW, Victoria and the Northern Territor only. Maximum number of tickets available: 5,100. Raffle closes 5pm, 14 September 2023. Winners' names will be drawn on 18 September 2023.
