Mission Statement

To demonstrate the love of Christ to people affected by poverty, conflict and disaster.

Description

In our broken world, so many people are suffering. They are pushed to the margins and forgotten. Men, women, and children are persecuted and left without homes. They are hurting, sick, and in crisis.

God calls us to love the vulnerable, to dare to love like Jesus. He uses us to provide those in crisis with protection and care.

We work to restore health as the first step to restoring hope. Because every person deserves the chance for a better life. Because every person - no matter where they are or how desperate their situation - matters.
