World Concern 2018: A Year in Review

As a valuable member of our World Concern family, thank you for all you’ve done to help families in the poorest places, in Jesus’ name, around the world!

Join us in looking back on 2018 and see how you’ve helped the most vulnerable, beyond the very end of the road.

You Reached Rohingya Refugees

Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya families fled unspeakable violence in Myanmar and arrived in overcrowded refugee camps in Bangladesh.

Because of your generosity, these vulnerable families received shelter materials, hygiene kits, and other emergency supplies.  You helped make life-saving resources available in the midst of one of the world’s largest refugee crises.

You Cured Children from Parasites with the 44-Cent Cure

You cured children with intestinal parasites in places like Haiti and Bangladesh. You are changing lives and giving kids the chance to be kids again – to go to school, grow, and be healthy!

You Protected Children from Trafficking

Through your support of the S.O.S. Initiative, you helped Seek Out and Stop child trafficking! In May, 1,000 people ran (or walked) the S.O.S. 5k at World Concern’s headquarters to raise support to stop child trafficking. You changed the course of vulnerable children’s lives, protecting them from exploitation and abuse.

You Provided Clean Water

Through wells and water filters, you provided clean, safe water to families and communities in need.

Between July, 2018 and June, 2019 you provided 44 new water sources to provide clean water to One Village Transformed villages.

Families were taught hygiene and clean water safety to keep their children healthy.

You Fed Hungry Children

You fed little ones in places like Somalia who now have full, nourished bellies  and healthy bodies thanks to emergency nutrition packets that reached them just in time.

You Reached Beyond the End of the Road

You helped launch “One Village Transformed” communities this year in Kenya, Laos, Myanmar, and South Sudan.

We are so grateful for your partnership over this past year and pray that in 2019, together we’ll continue to transform lives in the world’s poorest places.

    1. A very Happy New Year to you as well, Irene! Thank you for helping support families in the world’s poorest places!

  3. It feels good to help these poor families; God has been so good to me and our family; it is a privilege to help others! This was done in honor of my two oldest children. Please send me confirmation that I can pass it along to them. Thank you.

    1. Thank you, Judy, for giving in honor of your children! We’ll reach out and make sure you receive confirmation of your gift!

  4. May all the glory of helping God’s children, both old and young belong to our love in Jesus.
    Thank you to all who make this a reality.

  5. When Peter in Acts 10:38 said to Cornelius: You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. It was Jesus doing good that caught the attention of the gentiles. If we today go about doing good the people will see Jesus in us and that will draw them to the grace so freely given to us.

    1. Thank you for sharing that verse with us, Scott, as it is our prayer too that others see Jesus in our work!

  6. I thank God for organization like World Concern. Jesus calls us to preach His Gospel to every corner of the world; we may not all be able to actually physically reach these corners, but through our giving to World Concern (and other beautiful organization) we can reach those beautiful souls….
    Happy New Year to all and may our almighty Father bless each and everyone of you a million fold for your humble donations.

  9. Thank you so much for sharing with me the heart warming pictures, showing us who donate what World Concern is doing for the Glory of God, and his creation. It confirms that my prayers are being heard. May 2019 be an abundant year, by people opening their heart’s to World Concern, by doing and pleasing our Lord and God.
    Keep up the great work, and God bless you all, abundantly.

  10. Every human being is a creation of God. As such, everyone has an eternal value. As much as we are able to do this to the least of these, we are doing it unto God. Either everyone matters or no one matters.
    Thank you for the work you do, and the photographs you published. Thank you for encouraging us to be a part of this ministry in Jesus name.

    God Bless all of you,
    Love in Christ,
    Eliot

  11. It’s encouraging and refreshing to see the beautiful smiles on the faces of God’s creation in different parts of the world in Jesus Name. May God bless all the givers who gave knowing that pysically they may not have a chance to see the blessed souls. God bless the organizers because without a team work spirit I don’t think such a great mission can be completed. One time Apostle Paul said- I planted the seed, Apollos watered but Who make it grow ? God.
    God bless
    Antony
