Your financial gifts enable these ministries to reach out to survivors of natural and man-made disasters in the U.S. and worldwide with responses such as relief and recovery from extremist violence in Nigeria; providing childcare by trained and certified volunteers in shelters and resource centers; rebuilding homes damaged by winds and flooding from storms such as Hurricanes Matthew and Harvey; and helping to restore the lives of disaster survivors through community-driven programs.
