Drought. War. Natural disasters. The global food crisis.
So many people are suffering around the world. But as extreme as their physical suffering is, there is an even greater crisis in our world. Today more than three billion people worldwide have never heard about Jesus.
Although the needs are greater than ever, so is the opportunity to share the hope of Jesus! That is why today we are asking you to maximize your impact by partnering with Unto® to meet people’s physical and spiritual needs.
Due to the provision of matching funds, every dollar you give to the Maximum Impact Fund by December 31 will be DOUBLED instantly, up to $810,000! That means your donation will provide ministry support to impact TWICE as many children, families, and war victims struggling to survive.
The Maximum Impact Fund supports the ministry’s three key programs: Food and Agriculture, Clean Water, and Critical Aid where most urgently needed. It also enables a quick response to the many emergency requests we are receiving during the current humanitarian crises.
Without these funds we risk canceling projects with international staff teams. These teams are counting on humanitarian assistance to provide access to unreached people in 27 countries over the next few months.
Your gift today will be DOUBLED to provide ministry support where most urgently needed. You will also help feed hungry children, serve families in need of clean water, and provide lifesaving critical aid to war victims. Most importantly, your gift will open doors for the message of Jesus to be shared in the toughest places on earth.
Will you partner with us to provide twice the help for suffering people — and share the hope of Jesus?
Together with partners like Harim*, Unto is serving in hard-to-reach areas to meet the physical and spiritual needs of people who have never heard about Jesus.
After leaving South Sudan during the civil war, Harim returned to his home country to tell the people in his village about Jesus. But instead of a warm reception, he faced extreme resistance. The people ran him out of town and threatened to kill him if he ever came back — simply because he followed Jesus.
Despite the risks Harim kept going back. He discovered the key to gaining access to his community was providing humanitarian aid.
His village had no church, no school, and no clean water. The people’s only source of water for miles was a dirty lake. The water was so contaminated that it was literally killing people.
The local Unto staff team partnered with Harim to drill a well in his home village and everything changed. At the well opening ceremony, the JESUS film was shown, and over 100 people responded to the message!
You can be part of a story like this one by providing families with lifesaving humanitarian aid and opportunities to learn about Jesus. Would you consider a generous gift to help where most urgently needed today?

The global refugee crisis is surging. More than 82 million people have been displaced from their homes due to wars, economic collapse, disasters, persecution, and more. This is the highest figure since World War II.
Abib* and his three daughters are among the millions of refugees in the Middle East. His wife died of cancer. He is also very sick and unable to work. He struggles to access the basic necessities he and his daughters need.
Our local staff team members went to visit him on Christmas Eve, bringing him meals. Tears filled his eyes. Our staff members shared about the hope of Jesus. He told them,
Many people saw me in the street but didn’t find compassion or love for me … you have filled my heart with joy.
People remember the first time they experience the kindness of Jesus. As a result they want to know more about God’s love. You can be the first to express the kindness of Jesus to a suffering individual or family.

In the toughest places people are often unable to grow food during the dry season due to the lack of rain. As a result children and their families lack the nutrition they need.
Watch the video to see how helping a community plant a garden and install a simple bucket drip irrigation system enables them to grow food year-round.
In a year that seems out of control in so many ways, God is still at work — orchestrating events according to His perfect plan. We have seen it, even in the toughest places, and we want to share these stories of hope with you.
Watch the replay of the webinar, Making the Maximum Impact in the Toughest Places, for an inside look at what is happening in the field. You will hear from President and CEO, Al Goff, and Director of Communications, Katie Carpintero, as they share insights, field updates, and stories about how your support impacts people in the toughest places.
