Donate

We greatly appreciate those who can help us reach our goals. Our first and foremost aim is to teach the orphan children and poor children, with no cost to them.  Our school provides religious education that they may know the word of God.

8 orphan kids eat lunch for free at Christ Public School.
Daily Lunch Program

In October 2013 we added a feeding program for eight of our orphan kids who had nothing to eat at lunch time.  Most of the students go home to eat lunch, but we learned that these eight children had no one at home during the day to give them lunch.  They were becoming weak and sick due to malnutrition.  Since that time, the lunch program has expanded, and by October 2015 we were able to feed 15 children each day.

We give the kids free books and notebooks, new shoes, and a school uniform each year.  Our mission is to enable orphan children to lead a positive, happy, independent life; integrate into society; achieve their maximum potential; and adopt a suitable career.

If you want to help us to help these kids, we are now able to accept donations by Paypal. There is a Donate button on the sidebar to the right, for your convenience.

If you are able to send send a larger donation ($500 or more) please send it by Western Union, or by bank wire to my bank account. This will allow a larger net amount to reach me, as Paypal transaction fees will be avoided. *

Some of our specific items needed include books, uniforms, grey coloured jackets, and furniture for the orphan children.  (Some of the classrooms are lacking chairs or benches, and many of the children sit on the floor.)

– My ID number is 35404-9509326-3.
– Please use my full name AMIN BOOTER ISSAC as the Recipient Name.
– I will pick it up at the nearest office (anywhere in Pakistan).  You do not need to specify the city.
– After you’ve sent the funds, please contact me via Facebook private message:  https://www.facebook.com/amin.issac

Here is a photo from January 2013, when the orphan kids were presented with school books and school bags.  The children thanked and prayed for the persons whose donations made this possible.  The precious children in the photo below were performing during an assembly where they were presented with new uniforms.

*  Here’s how the math works out ….

We have two ways you can send money to help the kids, via Paypal, or via Western Union.

You are welcome to use the easy Paypal button for sending any amount, large or small.
However, please be aware that if you’re sending larger amounts (over $500), it’s better to
send the funds to Amin via Western Union, if possible, to bypass the Paypal fees and get
more of your donation directly into Amin’s hands.

How it works:

The Paypal funds come into a US bank account first, and are then sent via Western Union
to Pakistan. This results in a smaller net amount actually reaching Amin, because fees are
deducted by both Paypal and Western Union.

Here’s a real-life example:

On a recent donation of $1,200.00, Paypal deducted approximately $35.00 in processing
fees. The net amount that actually arrived in the US bank account from Paypal was
$1,164.90.

To send that amount to Pakistan, Western Union charged $30.00 transfer fees, resulting in
a net amount to Amin of only $1,134.90.

But if the donor could have sent the entire $1,200.00 directly by Western Union, the same
$30.00 transfer fee would still apply (total $1,230.00 out-of-pocket for the donor). Paypal fees would be avoided, and Amin would receive the entire $1,200.00 donation.

Or the donor could have sent $1,170.00 (net amount) to Amin, plus the $30.00 Western Union
fees, to total the same $1,200.00 out-of-pocket amount. And Amin would still receive
$1,170.00 instead of $1,134.90.
