Funding B'Elanna's Future

B'Elanna Satya.

If you know the name, you know how wonderful she is. In taking a leap of faith to move to Hong Kong for university, B’Elanna has become an integral part of our church and young adult community. She has loved upon many and poured out her time in serving others around her. However due to her family falling on signifcant financial difficulties, her education had to come to a halt with a possibility that she might have to return to Indonesia after the student visa expires. If B'Elanna does not re-enroll by January 1st 2019, she will be forced to leave Hong Kong permanently.  

As her family here in Hong Kong, we believe it is our time to come around and support with whatever we can to raise enough money for her to continue her education here in Hong Kong. The plan is to re-enroll for a semester, then transfer to Chinese University for a different degree program that will allow her to finish sooner. It will be a significant financial cost, but we believe that our community can meet this need. Our goal is to raise HKD $200,000 for B'Elanna to be able to finish her degree, with her needing a minimum of $70,000 to re-enroll and at least stay in Hong Kong beyond January.  

In faith, we are believing for the entire amount.  Will you partner with us?

Statement from B'Elanna's family:

We have been struggling financially due to a number of business failures in the past recent years. We found ourselves in debt, which made it a lot harder to recover financially, we had to start from scratch. Thankfully we have progressed into almost completely coming out of debt, but we still need time to recover from the recent fall.

Thank you from the Satya family for your generosity.
