Thank you for your help!
We’re living in unprecedented times.
We have started to receive requests from our missionaries for funds to help people within the communities they’re endeavouring to reach. These funds will be used by our missionaries to purchase food, medicines and other basic necessities to help people struggling to get by.
In World Outreach our primary focus is Unreached People Groups (UPGs).
Many have not heard of the virus, nor have any idea how it is transmitted, nor how to protect themselves. Many cannot wash and sanitise their hands regularly. Either from a lack of water or walking many miles to carry (dirty and contaminated) water.
They continue to greet each other in their cultural way, usually by touching. They do not know to sneeze or cough onto their elbow. ‘Social distancing’ is unheard of in many cultures.
In many communities HIV/AIDS and TB are very prolific. As you all know, COVID-19 is dangerous to people who have compromised health systems.
We can’t help everyone, but we want to help those with whom we’re already engaged.
Our heartfelt thanks for your support!
God’s People Mobilised
One of our field workers in India is cooking food in his office and, with permission from the local authorities, delivering that food to the doorstep of 316 poor families every day. These families have no capacity or resources to buy or source food.
This is life-giving!
Another of our expat field workers is helping his community in Indonesia by giving vitamins, bread and cereal to people who have been quarantined. Riding to their fence on his motorbike, he hands over these essential items to families who otherwise would have no access to them.
