  • The CSi Disaster Relief Team arrived into Freeport, Grand Bahama Island on Thursday, September 12th to assess the situation in the Bahamas. The need was overwhelming, but the people of the Bahamas will have Hope through your Help.

     

    Thank you for your prayers, donations, and for sharing the word about the people of the Bahamas. The team is back in Florida re-organizing and planning the best way to bring in immediate help to the people.

    October 8, 2019 update:


    We have now taken in Five groups to The Bahamas with Disaster Relief Workers and Medical Teams. Your donations have allowed us to take in 33 Pallets of Supplies to the Bahamian people! THANK YOU! 

  • Our representative is delivering food, mosquito nets, and supplies to refugees that are in Western Africa. Over 300,000 displaced people are living in tarps, and out in the open air without shelter. They are hungry, alone, and in need immediate help. Thank YOU for bringing them a meal today. #CSihumanitarianaid #CSihopeandhelp

  • Cyclone idai relief

    Due to your recent donations to the country of Malawi, Missionary Gibbs was able to provide 22,000 pounds of maize to feed over 1,000 Malawian people. CSi worked hand in hand with the missionary to provide hope and help to the nation. CSi sent water filters, mosquito nets, building materials and food relief. CSi also sent $5,000 to Mozambique to help with church repairs and food relief. Twenty-three churches sustained damage and 4,000 people were in need of food. 

  • St. Louis, MO - Compassion kits to the homeless - August 2019

    CSi made up over 900 compassion kits with hygiene products in them to hand out at the biggest Youth Event in the United States, NAYC. We had an outreach booth recruiting nursing students to come on our upcoming trips and targeted handing out the compassion kits to the homeless around the St. Louis Dome. Huge success.

  • Malawi flooding - June 2019

    CSI was able to provide funding for food relief for 1,300 people in Malawi who were affected by Cylone Idai over 1/2 of which were children. We were also able to send 100 water filters to Malawi. We want to once again thank Micki Mangun and Jennifer Williams from The Pentecostals of Alexandria, who took the filters with them when they traveled to the area for a conference. When we all work together doing our part, big acts of compassion can happen! 


    There is still a need in Malawi so if you would like to help CSi supply more families with these water filters you can donate today to our Clean Water Fund

  • Roof repair in liberia

    A violent storm damaged the roof of a kindergarten school at the mission in Bomi Hills, Liberia. Thanks to your support the school roof was repaired before the six-month rainy season began. During this season the area was expected to get over 200 inches of rain. If the roof was not repaired the school most likely would have been shutdown.

  • Venezuela humanitarian help

    These are the boxes of food and supplies shipped to Venezuela. CSi raised $3,600 for 60 box containers to bring food, supplies, and necessities, to the people of Caracas. Thanks for loving Venezuela! 

  • liberia medical clinic

    Your generous donations allowed CSi to send an offering to the medical clinic in Liberia. This clinic is a CSi supported project that provides medical care to hundreds of patients each week. The people treated at the clinic would not be able to receive adequate medical care otherwise.

  • Uganda famine

    In the Spring of 2018, many regions of Africa were experiencing drought. In Uganda, UPCI Representative Phil Tolstad reported that drought caused famine, exasperated by an influx of refugees from South Sudan, was creating a severe humanitarian crisis. He reported that two UPCI ministers wives had passed away as a result. Near that time, we also received a request to purchase grain for the Sahel region of Africa. While we raise funds for our End Hunger campaign throughout the year, these grave needs prompted us to create a drive called, “Feeding Our Family.” Your support helped to provide relief to each of these needs, distributed through the hands of UPCI representatives.

  • guatemalan volcano relief

    Following the volcanic eruptions in Guatemala, the world was quickly inundated with dramatic images of fire and destruction. Representative Brad Thompson reported that 10 people associated with the UPC of Guatemala were included among the dead. Following his appeal for relief aid, you quickly helped raise $8,000, which was distributed through Mr. Thompson.

  • South asia medical health fairs

    During Summer 2018, a team of CSi volunteer medical personnel partnered with the NextSteps program in South Asia to conduct medical health fairs to hundreds of people at multiple locations. These efforts in combination with the NextSteps program not only met physical needs but opened the door to community outreach and evangelism.

  • floods in india

    India experienced devastating floods, damaging several UPCI churches, pastor’s homes, and congregation member’s homes. One local UPCI presbyter reported that all local (Kerala) dams were opened, there were numerous landslides, and more than 100 church families were affected. You and our supporters helped raise nearly $7,000, which was distributed through UPCI representatives to that area.

  • 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. With your help CSi was able to collect needed emergency supplies that were delivered to some of the hardest hit areas. Our mobile response trailer was onsite in Port Arthur, Texas and served as a first aid clinic for volunteers working to clean up debris and for the local community. 


    While relief efforts were still underway in Texas, Hurricanes Irma and Maria caused widespread damage in Florida and the Caribbean. So many of you gave and because of your gifts relief supplies have been trucked, flown and shipped by boat to those in greatest need. Everything from bottled water, diapers, canned food, cleaning supplies, generators and so much more.

  • sierra leone mudslide relief

    Devastating mudslides in Sierra Leone claimed the lives of more than 400 people, 1/3 of which were children.The mudslides caused by heavy rains buried homes and other structures that were little more than wooden shacks with tin roofs. They were no match for the force of water, rocks and mud that came crashing down upon them. CSi had the opportunity to assist 200 families with emergency relief. Thank you to everyone who gave to help these families.

  • CYCLONE GITA

    CSi sent $11,625 to help with church and home repairs as well as hygiene and food supplies. Severe Tropical Cyclone Gita was the most intense tropical cyclone to impact Tonga since reliable records began. The second named storm and first major tropical cyclone of the 2017–18 South Pacific cyclone season, Gita originated from a monsoon trough that was active in the South Pacific in early February 2018.

  • caribbean hurricane relief

    While hurricane relief continued in the Caribbean we did have the opportunity in September to attend the UPCI General Conference in Kansas City. So many of you stopped by our booth areas to learn more about how to get involved and donated so that the relief efforts in the Caribbean could continue. Thank you!

  • HURRICANE MATTHEW

    In 2018 we completed a project in Haiti that began in 2016 after Hurricane Matthew badly damaged 4 churches that have a reach of over 150,000 community members.  CSi sent a total of $52,500.00. Churches had extensive damage almost entirely rebuilt as a result of your giving! 

  • SOUTH SUDAN FAMINE RELIEF

    Compassion Services International sent $3,600.00 to help 18 churches in South Sudan after the severe famine. A record number of people in South Sudan face a critical lack of food. A new report by the government and the United Nations says almost seven million people, or more than 60% of the population, are at risk.
