Build a City is an innovative new initiative from People for Care and Learning (PCL) that has one primary focus – building a city for the people of Khan Dang Kao, Cambodia. For the hundreds of families living in extreme poverty in that region of Cambodia, a new city would mean a complete lifestyle change. Simple things like clean water, nutritious food, sanitation and suitable shelter that were once hard to come by would be readily available, vastly improving quality of life.
PCL has been working throughout Southeast Asia for more than a decade, improving communities and giving people hope for a better life. Build a City is an extension of this work, but will require the support of people around the world willing to partner with this worthwhile cause.
On Monday, April 13, Daystar will be airing a special 90-minute program featuring Dr. Fred Garmon, Executive Director of PCL. Dr. Garmon will explain the initiative in greater detail, highlighting ways in which you can get involved right from your home!
We hope that you tune in on Monday, April 13 at 12:00 p.m., 8:30 p.m. and 1:00 a.m. Eastern to watch this special program! If you would like to start giving towards this cause today, please click on the “Give Now” button below to be taken to our secure online giving form. Thank you for supporting this initiative!
