Children’s Hunger Fund – (childrenshungerfund.org) Established in 1991 by Dave Phillips after encountering starving children in Honduras, the Children’s Hunger Fund (CHF) was created to deliver hope to suffering children and the means for local churches to conduct gospel-centered mercy missions in the U.S. and abroad. Over the past two decades, CHF has raised more than a billion dollars and helped both children and adults during times of crisis and disaster. To serving 15,000 meals per day after a major earthquake hits Los Angeles in 1994, to sending 15 truckloads of aid to Katrina refugees in 2005, to shipping dried fruit, medicine, and blankets to North Korean orphans in 2012, CHF has helped millions of people around the world in their greatest time of need.
Founded in 1970 by Bob Pierce, this evangelist and journalist traveled throughout Asia in the years following WWII. During a trip to China, he met a group of brave women who lived among the lepers and orphans in order to help them and share the love of Jesus Christ through selfless service. Pierce was so moved by these women that he dedicated his life to finding other Christians who were willing to care for the poor and suffering around the world. After seeing children suffering on the island of Kojedo, Korea, he created Samaritan’s Purse to meet emergency needs through evangelical missions. After his death in 1978, Franklin Graham took the reins and expanded the ministry for the next 30 years to help those suffering from earthquakes, hurricanes, famine, and wars, following the Biblical example of being the Good Samaritan (samaritanspurse.org).
In 1952, the Rev. Everett Swanson went to South Korea to minister to the American troops who were fighting in the Korean War. While, in Seoul, he witnessed hundreds of war orphans living and dying in the streets, abandoned by society, he vowed to find a way to help them. Starting with a single orphanage, he created a program that provided food, clothing, medical care, shelter, and a Bible-based education to these unwanted children. Within two years, the mission grew into a sponsorship program where American individuals, groups, and churches could care for these children with small monthly donations. Today, with the support of 14 sponsor countries around the world, nearly 2 million babies, children, and young adults are released from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty through Compassion International’s Christ-centered, child-focused, church-based programs (compassion.com).
We are all familiar with The Salvation Army’s (salvationarmyusa.org) bell ringers that pop up at every retail store around the holidays each year. However, have you thought about where your spare change is going and whom it is helping? The Salvation Army is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Their mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ while meeting global human needs through service and the love of God. With your donations, The Salvation Army provides hunger relief, housing assistance, homeless services, Christmas assistance, and after school programs for children and families throughout the country. They also support a variety of unique adult programs, such as substance abuse rehabilitation, veterans affairs, prison ministries, elderly care, anti-human trafficking programs, and missing person services.
