First Quarter Responses 2015

IMG_0665.JPG

As we proclaim “Christ is Risen” this Easter season, Week of Compassion continues to share the light of hope, compassion, and peace with the world.  Through your generosity and support, we accompany and work with communities that call us to create peace in this world.  In the last few months we have offered hope to many individuals and communities who have been affected by natural and human-made disasters.  From helping families and children fleeing the conflict in Syria who have been internally displaced in refugee camps, to providing food and water to our sisters and brothers in the Vanuatu Islands whose communities were destroyed by category 5 Cyclone Pam, to providing solidarity grants to our Disciples communities in North America who suffered from severe winter storms, we have been responding to and working with many of these communities on your behalf.  

Below is a list of all the places we have responded since January 2015. Your contributions and partnership help us to live out Christ's call to serve the most vulnerable people in the world.   We are so grateful for your support and for putting your Compassion in Action. 

Thank you.
