The deepest need of any human being is the need to be loved. Across the world today, there are millions of vulnerable children who are isolated, neglected, discouraged and discarded. Mother Teresa once said -
“Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is truly the most terrible poverty.”
The Alongsiders movement is now active in 13 countries across Asia and Africa. In the past 5 years, over 5000 youth have been reached. Flip Flop Sunday is an opportunity for you to walk alongside vulnerable children around the world in three easy steps:
On Flip Flop Sunday, 20 October 2019 (also World Mission Day), commit to celebrating Christian youth around the world who walk alongside vulnerable kids in their own communities by wearing your favourite pair of flip flops (sandals, slippers, thongs, jandals).
