You can Meet Needs Around the World

Impoverished or displaced people need basic care to help them build a better future. Unto and our partners throughout the developing world provide necessary supplies including health-related items, blankets, clothing, shoes, and tarps for temporary shelter.

As the humanitarian ministry of Cru®, Unto has leveraged strategic global partnerships to relieve suffering through our Critical Aid Program:

  • For nearly 30 years
  • In more than 75 countries
  • With access to Cru’s 190-country network


Partnerships with people like you make it possible for Unto to provide humanitarian assistance and coaching to our Cru national partners, giving them access to people who might otherwise be unreachable.

In many cases humanitarian aid is the main reason authorities allow ministry to continue in some of the toughest places on earth.


We seek to minister to the disabled and their families through the provision of mobility aids as well as training for caregivers.

Essential Supplies

After food and water, other critical needs remain. We provide people with necessary items like blankets, tarps, clothes, and hygiene items.

Lives are Changed

Jesus understands the plight of refugees. He too was a refugee when His family fled their home and their country to escape violence.

Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble;
You will strengthen their hearts.
You will listen carefully, doing justice for the fatherless and the oppressed …
Psalm 10:17-18
