No Family Gathering • No gifts • No Festive Decorations • No Joy • No Christmas Dinner • No Hope • NO TIME TO SPARE
Our mission at Crisis Aid is to help the helpless. This Christmas Season our primary goal is to rescue as many children as possible who are at risk of starving to death. Their situation is dire, but with God’s help, together we have the ability to save lives, save souls and change futures through the power of love. Through your prayers and support, we can overcome the ravages of starvation and make an eternal difference in the lives of these precious children. Please join us in bringing comfort and joy to these unfortunate lives with a donation of any amount. Giving generously enables us to realize a greater outcome of our mission.

As the year draws to an end, we cannot express enough, our gratitude for the part you play on our Crisis Aid team. The lives you have saved, the souls you have helped, are forever changed. Hope has been given that transcends language and distance, all because you cared. But the harsh reality of children suffering is still present. And there are ever so many waiting to be served. This is their Christmas. Please don’t forget them. Stay ever vigilant and committed to being a part of the reason for the season. These children need your help more than ever. Give them a chance to be with us to enjoy a Christmas next year. Thank you for being the answer to their prayers!

She did not know where she came from or how she ended up on the streets. She didn’t even know her name. We found this lost little 4-year-old girl wandering the streets, terrified. She was barely surviving, hopeless and her future was bleak.
It all changed when we brought her to your Children’s Home for orphaned girls. Since she had no name, we decided to name her Bereket, which means “blessing”. We later learned that Bereket had lost both parents to HIV/AIDS. Additionally, we were told she had no relatives which could be found.
Your children’s home in East Africa provides everything Bereket will need to develop into a responsible adult and live the life God intended her to have.
Bereket now has 29 other “sisters” in her home, and they have become one large family! YOU made this possible for all 30 girls in the Children’s Home.
Healthy and happy, she is now a 12-year-old, full of life and dreams. Bereket loves to read, especially Biblical storybooks. She also loves to sing, dance and create dramas!
Bereket dreams of one day being a teacher so that she can help children like herself learn to read and write, as her teachers and supporters are helping her. With your continuing prayers and support, Bereket and her sisters can realize all they dream of becoming.
Imagine what it would be like to be a lost child. You have no family and are living on the streets. You are utterly hopeless and terrified. Your only thought is to survive to the next day or even the next hour. There is nowhere to turn for help.
And then someone comes along and rescues you and brings you to a place that becomes your home. How would you feel towards the person who made this happen? To Bereket and her sisters, that person is you. You are their hero, their rescuer!
Without you, this Children’s Home, and all that it provides would not be possible. Your prayers and support give the hopeless, like Bereket, the promise of a joyful future. You give them the hope and help they so desperately need.
Thank you for your faithfulness!
