(ATLANTA, GA) – Sharity Ministries, a 501(c)(3) non-profit health care sharing ministry, continues the tradition of sharing for the benefit of its collective membership and community. Sharity uses a percentage of funds collected from its membership to distribute to communities in need. The ministries’ charitable focus is to keep children safe, fed, educated and healthy so that every child has the opportunity for a healthy tomorrow, which led Sharity Ministries to donate to Camp Kudzu in Atlanta, GA, in December of 2018. Camp Kudzu empowers children and teens living with type 1 diabetes through fun-filled diabetes management programs, giving children the opportunity to live a longer, healthier life.
Founded in 1999, Camp Kudzu is a non-profit created by parents, doctors, health experts and community leaders. They host summer camps, week-long camps, retreats for teens and camps that include the whole family. Their programs are derived and supported by endocrinologist and other healthcare professionals trained in diabetes management.
William Thead, Sharity’s CEO, states, “Children and teens are the future of our country, and Sharity Ministries believes that promoting healthy living in our youth is of significant value to our community. We are grateful to have the opportunity to donate to an organization that is truly making a difference in these children’s lives.” In the words of our God, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
