Klong Toey, Bangkok, Thailand
Camille is passionate about living out and extending the hope and love of Christ, that He may transform lives. In the past Camille studied International Relations, culture and language – and was particularly struck by the heartache, conflict and struggle that many encounter.
At the beginning of 2012, Camille relocated with UNOH to multicultural Springvale, a suburb south east of Melbourne. She spend her time growing friendships with neighbours through spending time with children, helping teenagers with homework in their second language, and assisting refugee neighbours with navigating life in Australia as well as helping in the Free Burma Cafe .
After some time of discernment and sensing a call to serve overseas, Camille will be joining the Lok 3 team with UNOH Bangkok. She will be involved in Language and culture learning, kids and youth clubs, helping with a training and employment Cafe initiative and other projects. Her cross cultural experiences of Springvale and her gift in linguistics will be a huge asset and her heart to love and serve the most vulnerable will be a blessing to the many families she will be living amongst in this slum community. Camille is excited to be a part UNOH Bangkok and hopes that she can see many lives come to know the restoration, justice and love of a transforming God.
The cost of relocating to Thailand, and undertaking formal language study is high. Would you consider financially supporting Camille into this next part of her journey among the poor?

TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS
UNOH has the capacity to provide tax-deductibility for most donations - either under our own name for work in Australia, or through Global Mission Partners for work in developing countries. We are happy to provide tax-deductibility wherever we can. However, where donations are made without the requirement for tax-deductibility, UNOH has more flexibility in the use these donations. For example, we cannot use donations that have been given tax-deductibility, for activities that might be interpreted as "evangelism", and overseas, not all work in poverty relief is considered eligible for tax-deductibility, especially where we might be assisting individuals rather than doing community development.
As our workers in Australia are considered religious workers, we are not able to issue a tax deductible receipt for donations which are for payment of living expenses of Australian workers.
If you do not normally claim such donations as tax deductions when you do your income tax return, or if you do not earn enough the have to pay tax, then nominating NO for tax-deductibility is a good choice for UNOH and no cost to you. Moreover, you might simply choose to forego tax-deductibility in order to provide greater flexibility for UNOH in spending your donation.NZ Donations
For those in NZ who want to donate to UNOH in NZ dollars, if you donate through UNOH Australia, you will incur a fee for foreign exchange and will not be able to claim a tax receipt because the donation will go to Australia (not NZ). If you would like to donate direct to UNOH NZ, please click here.
