Guatemala Volcano Disaster Relief

As you may be aware, Guatemala has been hit with a series of volcanic eruptions which has devastated parts of the country. Brad Thompson, the UPCI missionary in the area has reported the following:


“The initial blast sent rivers of lava pouring down the Pacific coastal side of the volcano and shot ash and debris miles into the sky, closing the international airport and raining ash over Guatemala City and the outlying areas.


The UPC of Guatemala has a disaster relief policy, which was put into effect immediately. The Bible School in Guatemala City has been set up as the organization and distribution center for relief efforts.


So far we have 10 people connected to our churches confirmed dead and several others missing. We have several families who have lost everything. We do not know the extent of the impact as this is an ongoing situation. Today we sent 6 caskets to the coast on the back of my pick up. We have sent monetary help for funeral expenses along with food, water, clothing and medications.”


There are a number of immediate needs including water, face masks, respiratory medication, basic food, and hygiene supplies. These items can be purchased in Guatemala, but financial support is required.


Please help us raise funds to support this immediate and developing relief effort, as well as be prepared for future natural disasters.


Please share this, pray for those affected, and donate:

Cyclone Gita South Pacific

Cyclone Gita struck the South Pacific Islands of Tonga causing widespread destruction and it will take many months before life returns to normal. The main island is flat, so the winds destroyed crops and future food supplies. CSI has been working closely with our missionaries and local contacts to assess this situation and determine how CSI can best help the people of Tonga. Funding has been sent for food, cleaning supplies and personal items which are being delivered to families. Repairs to churches and homes is the next phase of the relief effort that you can help with. Your donation of any amount will make a big difference to the people of Tonga.

From Him-To Them-Through Us

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. 



Help the Suffering

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. 



HURRICANES HARVEY, IRMA AND MARIA

Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas over the greater Houston area and the Corpus Christi area on August 25, 2017 with winds topping 130 miles per hour. The devastating winds and landmark flooding inland made this an unprecedented event for Texas. Through the help of so many of you, CSI was able to send relief supplies to area churches that were set up as distribution centers in their communities. The CSI mobile response trailer also served as a first aid station for volunteers as they worked to cleanup the debris. 


Hurricanes Irma and Maria caused widespread damage in the Caribbean. In Puerto Rico 100% of the population was without power for several days. In the island of Dominca almost 90% of the buildings were destroyed. Reports of devastation were reported from multiple islands. Thanks to the generous donations of our supporters generators, tarps, and other necessary supplies have been shipped and flown to the Caribbean. There is still a long road of recovery ahead. CSI is committed to showing compassion for the Caribbean through your donations and prayers. We have the opportunity to provide both lasting and substantial support and aid to those suffering. 


We also had a team of medical volunteers arrive in Puerto Rico on November 13, 2017. The team delivered medical supplies, held multiple clinics and worked with other humanitarian workers throughout the week seeing nearly 200 patients.









Compassion Your Way

Compassion Services International wants to give each supporter the opportunity to create their own unique compassion experience. Some are called to give. Some are called to go. Some are called to pray. Some are called to help raise awareness about who we are and what we do. Whatever compassion calling you have we hope that you will find that Compassion Services International offers you the ability to fulfill that calling. 


So choose one way or choose them all but just know that this is-Compassion Your Way.
