Saiyarak

27 September, 2018Community

Saiyarak, an HIV/AIDS support group in Nan Province, Thailand, is a group of about 40 adults and children affected by HIV who provide a network of support in their communities through microenterprises, education support, health education, holiday programs and family support.

They are supported within Thailand by the Church of Christ in Thailand AIDS Ministry (CAM) based in Chiang Mai. We occasionally send teams from CoroUniting to continue to build relationships with Saiyarak and CAM to complement our financial and prayer support. The last trip with a team was in 2017.

A comprehensive Saiyarak Q&A has been written to answer any questions and provide further information.

Education Support: One of the key ways in which we financially support Saiyarak is through our Saiyarak Child Sponsorship (see linked brochure), enabling sponsors to support a particular child in their journey through the education system.

If you are interested in supporting Saiyarak financially, please download the linked Support form or contact Abbi Gottsche.

Cross-Cultural Ministry

CoroUniting commissions individuals and families who are called to share the good news of Jesus in words and actions by living and working in other cultural contexts.

Many exciting ministries are also happening through others beyond Australia’s shores, and we love to build relationships with some of these. Two we have ongoing connection with are the [Saiyarak](https://www.corouniting.org/ministries/saiyarak) group and [Project Kola](https://www.corouniting.org/ministries/project-kola).

Mission Care

Mission Care (formerly Mission Focus Group) is primarily focused on the pastoral care of our Cross-Cultural Workers, especially those who are geographically separate from us. It is our deepest desire that these brothers and sisters not be forgotten or disregarded when we act as a church community. The pastoral care we offer is to hear the stories of those interested in becoming involved in mission activities that require them to cross cultural boundaries, and to journey with them as they enter the field, do the work, and return.

We currently have three partnerships with CoroUniting members working cross-culturally - see the below tabs for details.

Each of these Cross-Cultural Workers keep in touch with their supporters via newsletters, blogs, facebook groups and videos - for privacy reasons, these are restricted to those who call CoroUniting home and can be viewed in the [Resources section](https://www.corouniting.org/resources) (search for 'cross-cultural').
