The Answer To Abject Poverty Is Here - The Tesifa Project. It seems like just yesterday we were starting off with a 2-pound bag of rice, determined to do more than just watch as people literally starve to death. We are determined to help the people of East Africa make a permanent “life-giving” change for themselves and their families...
Because of you, hundreds more girls across the globe were rescued from a life of trauma and abuse. Because of you, thousands more families in St. Louis received essential food. Because of you, hundreds of thousands of people in Africa received life-changing medical care and food. This Gratitude Report is designed to celebrate you...
'You and Me Forever' perfectly symbolizes Pat Bradley's turning point. It brought to light the remarkable story of the birth of Crisis Aid International. "When you’re on a mission. When God puts this thing in your heart, and you really find it, it is not work, it’s a privilege..."
Through these community partners, you and donors like you have provided groceries to 2,000 families every two weeks since Covid-19 started to take effect. Families like Jordan’s. One food box at a time, one connection at a time, each relationship adds another branch within a local web of support. Because building relationships with our neighbors heals us.
A Generation of Love - Your 2019 Gratitude Report. You are part of a special group of people. When you see someone in pain, broken, and suffering, you stand together and take action. Thank you for being there for the innocent and vulnerable. Over the past year, your caring and compassionate support have saved so many lives. Starving children are now healthy and whole. Young girls have been rescued from a life of sexual slavery.
It was a look that you never forget. Ten-month-old Zuberi was beyond the initial pain of weeks without nourishment. Numb to the situation we found him in, his stare reflected a resignation of hopelessness. His protruding belly was in sharp contrast to his exposed rib cage -- it was a wonder he was still alive.
Almost on a daily basis, we are confronted with innocent children in desperate situations that require immediate attention. Life and death situations where there is no choice but to respond, and with God’s guidance, help the helpless. This is our mission. We refuse to do nothing. And we thank you for sharing in our commitment by supporting us and allowing us to become your hands and feet in this most worthy of endeavors. Together, we are making a big difference.
Your 2018 Annual Report - Your Impact – What an incredible year; filled with many triumphs and tremendous joy! We are very blessed to be the connection between you and those that so desperately need you. Together we served 180,029 people and distributed over 1.28 million lbs. of food! God is Good! Together, we expanded far beyond the walls that house programs and are now proactively involved in the communities we serve.
"I Don't Know Why You [Rescued Me] But You Saved My Life." THANK YOU - One of the greatest needs a human being has is to know that they are loved. That is what keeps bringing them back, sure the food is important but love is more important. To us we may be building a building, or giving food, or drilling a water well -- but to them: it is a miracle. Often times things look impossible...but for us, we ask: "but how are we going to do this?" "REFUSE TO DO NOTHING"
Thank you. As you look through these pictures, know that YOU are one of the special individuals that made these life-saving transformations possible. The smiles on these mothers’ faces say more than we could ever express with words. Their children are thriving today because of your generosity.
