Did you know that Mother’s Day is only a recent celebration in India (less than a decade), and is seen as a foreign festival adopted into the country! Mothers and ‘girl children’ are often objectified and controlled by male patriarchy. FEBC is helping to change mindsets.
For the average Indonesian, life is tough. It is a daily struggle to survive. Most cannot to afford to spend more than RP 11,000 (AUD 1) a day in rural areas, or RP 19,000 (AUD 1.78) in the city. Women are doubly burdened. But through FEBC, the love of Jesus is freeing many from their heavy yokes.
Women are often the most marginalised unit in Pakistani families. The situation is worse in rural villages. Sometimes basic medical and hygiene needs are not even met. FEBC through off-air and on-air activities have been bringing these women the freedom Christ came to give.
