Continually Inspired, Unchanging Mission

Editor’s note: This year marks the 30th anniversary of CEDAR. This year is not only a year of celebration, but also a year that teaches us to move forward courageously by standing firmly on the foundation built by our predecessors.

In this issue of ‘Focus’, we will share exciting testimonies from our 30th anniversary event and the direction our ministry is headed towards. We encourage you to continue to walk alongside us on this journey. We also interviewed a staff member who has served at CEDAR for many years where she shared stories about being part of the organisation. (‘Learn a Little More’). Additionally, we lead everyone in reading the Bible through the eyes of marginalised communities, which allow us to change the way we interpreted scripture (‘Back to the Bible’). Lastly, we invite everyone to participate in our ‘Beyond Feeding the Poor’ initiative to witness and cheer on the transformation of lives.

Dear supporters,


In just a year, I went from being the Acting Chief Executive of CEDAR to officially becoming the Chief Executive. Thanks to the trust of my colleagues and the board members, I have the opportunity to continue to assume the leadership role of the team. I am also grateful for the team’s concerted efforts. Even in the middle of COVID-19, we have been able to continue with our poverty alleviation project supervision and evaluation, as well as local fundraising, education and a series of activities and promotion work for the CEDAR’s 30th anniversary. We have also received the support and dedication we hoped for, so the projects and ministries supported by CEDAR have not been greatly affected by the pandemic. For this, I sincerely thank the team for their hard work and dedication.
