Provide Emergency Assistance to People Affected by the Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has been tough for all of us here in America. As hard as this has been for us, the effects of the virus are absolutely devasting in some of the toughest places on earth where people already struggle because of hunger, poverty, and war.
Requests for critical emergency assistance are pouring in from our field staff leaders. Their pleas are heartbreaking:
- “Many will die not from the coronavirus, but they will starve …”—Peru
- “Because our country is locked and everything is closed, there is no one to help refugees.” —Middle East
- “Our nation is not prepared at all. We are merely a death trap waiting to happen.” —Zimbabwe
- “As a country we have no capacity to respond effectively should the cases of the disease begin to multiply.” —Zambia
These people need your help. Every $35 you give now will put a Survival Kit into the hands of people in dire need of assistance.
Each kit will be tailored to the specific needs of a community in the toughest places on earth and packed with critical aid like:
- Hand sanitizer
- Medical supplies
- Hygiene items
Despite travel bans and shipping delays, Unto™ is already positioned to equip in-country teams with resources. That is because we provide critical aid and coaching to Cru® staff members who live and serve in over 190 countries around the world. Their long-term relationships with local leaders, churches, and individuals allow them to be mobilized quickly to help in times like these.
Every Survival Kit personally delivered by in-country partners into the hands of a refugee or hungry family will provide lifesaving assistance and create opportunities for the eternal hope of Jesus to be shared.
Will you help send critically needed supplies to suffering people now?
Helping a Tailor See Clearly to Work
Zacharia works as a tailor. But at 80 years of age, it was becoming increasingly difficult for him to see his work. He was among the hundreds of people who lined up at the vision clinic hosted by our local partners in his rural Tanzanian village.
After waiting in line, it was his turn to receive glasses. He tried on several pairs but could not decide which pair helped him see the best.
One of our team members found a needle and thread tucked inside a supply kit and handed it to Zacharia. Suddenly, everything was clear! Zacharia immediately knew which pair of glasses allowed him to see his work clearly.
Over the course of six days, our Tanzanian partners with Cru hosted three vision clinics in remote villages. They fitted 1,114 people with glasses. They also shared the hope of Jesus with more than 1,100 individuals and 367 people responded.
YOU can be a part of more stories like Zacharia’s — helping give clear sight and sharing the eternal hope of Jesus in the toughest places.
Yes, I want to give Survival Kits to people in tough places!
