The United Nations recently reported that one in ten people globally are afflicted by hunger. In Western Asia, the Caribbean, and Africa, one in five face hunger.
Over the next three months, Unto® plans to send more than 1.3 million meals to children and individuals in eight countries who are facing food insecurity or famine. Six of the eight countries where we are sending meals are within the three regions where food insecurity is the highest. People in these places need your help now!
It costs just 30 cents to provide a meal for a child or individual living in the toughest places on earth — and to create opportunities to reveal the hope of Jesus.
While many organizations struggle to get aid into tough places, Unto continues to relieve suffering through humanitarian aid. That is because for more than 30 years we have partnered with local Cru® staff members who serve in more than 190 countries worldwide.
Our local staff members and partners live in the communities where they minister and build long-term relationships with the people they serve. They are focused on meeting not only physical needs, but spiritual ones too.

“Wait, just give me five minutes and listen,” he boldly responded.
He began talking to the boys about Jesus. As he spoke they laid down their weapons. When he finished they asked him, “What do you have for us?”
Pastor John couldn’t just leave the boys on the street . He fed them. Gave them a place to stay. And continued sharing about the hope of Jesus. That was only the beginning …
