2020 has proven to be a year like no other. Covid-19 brought reports from many of the countries where we served telling us the impact of the quarantines and lock downs. In many of these countries, especially in the developing world, many people live day to day on the meager wages from jobs that they could no longer do and quality of life has been radically affected.
As the numerous stories came in we, at the EFCC|M, saw an opportunity to launch a Benevolence Fund to offer immediate relief to the situations we were hearing about. Sine the late spring and summer of this year, over $70,000 has been raised and distributed!
As the pandemic progresses past summer and stories continue to flow in we made the decision to merge our annual giving campaign “World of Hope” with the Benevolence Fund in an attempt to raise more funds for immediate relief. All of our missionaries will have access to these funds as their projects on field have needs that are amplified or have changed in the wake of Covid-19 and specifically relate to the purpose of the Benevolence Fund.
While most of the projects that missionaries have requested funds for through World of Hope are covered under our Benevolence Fund policies; there are a few that still require additional funding. If you would like to donate to one of these, please specify which project you would like to give to in the comment section of the donation form.
