Bread for the World's 2010 Christmas Card

Bread for the World has unveiled the design for its 2010 Christmas card, which was chosen with the help of members who voted for one of two designs.  

The winning design uses a photo taken by Bangladeshi photographer MNI Chowdhury for Majority World, a global initiative that champions the cause of indigenous photographers from the developing world.

A sick Hazara woman, accompanied by her husband and child, making her way to the nearest hospital – a three hour donkey ride from her home in a village near Bamiyan, Afghanistan.

Inside Message:
An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, ‘Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.'
- Matthew 1: 20-21
May God’s grace and love in Jesus Christ be with you throughout the New Year

You may pre-order the 2010 Christmas card by visiting Bread for the World's online store. Two additional Christmas card designs are also available for purchase, including the wonderful design that was chosen for 2009, which portrayed three women carrying water in Jaiselmer, India, near the Pakistan border.
