We live in unprecedented times. War has broken out in Eastern Europe. Supplies are short. Prices are skyrocketing — and hunger is rising. For those living in the toughest places, the impact of all these things is devastating.
Many of these people have never heard about the hope Jesus gives. But right now you have a special opportunity to share help AND hope with people in the toughest places.
Your donation will provide ministry support where most urgently needed to impact children, families, and war victims struggling to survive.
Here is why your giving is essential at this time. The Maximum Impact Fund supports three key programs: Food and Agriculture, Clean Water, and Critical Aid. It also enables a quick response to additional emergency requests. Without these funds we risk canceling projects with international staff teams who count on humanitarian assistance to meet people’s immediate needs and provide access for ministry in more than 50 countries next year.
Your gift today will 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 help for suffering people — and share the hope of Jesus?
As part of a nomadic people group in Ethiopia, Ayana’s* community depends on the rain to grow grass for their pasture animals. When drought struck the country, and everything dried up, they were left with no source of food or income.
On the day local Unto staff members visited Ayana in her hut, they learned that she had just given birth to a new baby a week before. She had no food for herself or her two other children. When they brought meals and supplies to her, she knew it was from God.
Ayana’s people group follows a tribal religion and she knew little if anything about Jesus. Through the relationship that was built, a local staff member was able to share about the hope of Jesus, and Ayana made a decision to follow Jesus in response to the message!
You can be part of a story like Ayana’s by providing families with humanitarian aid and opportunities to learn about Jesus. Will 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.
