Compassion Services International exists to offer help and hope to people living in desperate situations around the world. CSI receives an overwhelming number of requests for help from around the world each year. We want to be the hands and feet of Christ while providing for the physical and spiritual needs of those who are suffering. CSI does this by offering Disaster Relief, Medical Missions, Humanitarian Aid and more around the world. These endeavors not only help to meet the immediate physical needs of those we serve but it also opens the door for the love of Jesus to be displayed and for the gospel to be shared.
CSI believes in offering help and hope to those suffering in the aftermath of natural disaster and to those who suffer daily because they live in impoverished areas where drought, famine and inadequate medical care are ongoing needs.
Devastating mudslides in Sierra Leone have claimed hundreds of lives and hundreds more are still missing with the chances of finding survivors diminishing each day. With continued rains there is the threat of additional mudslides. Survivors are numb with grief walking around in despair. We have been in touch with those on the ground and we have the opportunity to assist 200 families with immediate emergency relief. A donation of just $25 will help one family. How many families can you help? Can your church or business help any? We are hoping to respond quickly to this need as time is of the essence!
Work on the roof at the medical clinic in Liberia has begun. From July-October the area is expected to get 200 inches of rain. The clinic had experienced roof leaks in several areas. They had been patching the roof with roofing cement. The main concern was that if the Ministry of Health came to do an unannounced inspection while it was raining and the roof had not been repaired the clinic would possibly get closed. Patients were also having to be shifted around due to the leaks. Hundreds of people rely on the services that the clinic provides. If you would like to help offset the cost of the repairs you can still make a donation to the Liberia Relief Fund. We didn't quite meet our goal of $3,000 but due to the critical nature of the need the funding has already been sent.
We are also continuing our work to help the people of South Sudan and Sri Lanka. In South Sudan the hunger crisis due to continued fighting that has caused families to have to flee their homes is still a major problem. The church we have been able to partner with is doing what it can with the funding you have provided. However, the number of people needing help has greatly multiplied and the cost of grain has went up considerably. Any amount you can give will help. The latest report from those on the ground in Sri Lanka is that we have the chance to help 34 families who have been affected by recent flooding. These families have suffered the loss of personal belongings as well as damage to their homes. There are 4 churches that have also been damaged. CSI has sent $3,000.00 to provide initial relief but we could use your help to raise $5,000.00 to send additional support.
