"Thank you for thinking of us. May God bless you and we all pray for your safety." She noted that our team member had called to ﬁnd out exactly what items they needed, saying "No one came to us and asked us exactly what we needed. Nobody values us. They treat us as products. But you treat us as human beings."
As we are bombarded with hard news in the midst of this pandemic, this reality often gets lost: for those already marginalised, the poor and exploited, their hard situations are now dire. Loss of income may mean starvation—not just for one who lost their job, but for all family members who depend on them.
Some good news shines out in these dark days. As God has touched hearts and lives, many people have responded in faith with great generosity. I am encouraged by the hope that their gifts have held out to the vulnerable. To all who have been praying and giving, let me say a big THANK YOU!
Through all of our partners across the globe, to date we have contributed $191,087.00 to people whose lives have depended upon it.
These gifts are now helping women who worked in sweatshops and on the street, refugees trapped in foreign countries or barely surviving, indentured workers surviving far from their families, and people eking out an existence on rubbish dumps
This help has made a big difference!
We have been able to support people in Bangladesh, Brazil, Cambodia, DRC, Egypt, Guatemala, India, Israel, Italy, Myanmar, and the Philippines.
But the need is still great.
The impact of C-19 isn’t going away any time soon, and we’re committed to bringing relief during this pandemic, as well as we can, for as long as we can.
Will you join us at GC3 in supporting marginalised people? Would you pray with us and would you give through us?
We say it again: The need is still great.
