NAMPA, Idaho, Aug. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — As people worldwide witnessed the tragic events in Afghanistan, organizations, churches, and ministries, like Global Catalytic Ministries (GCM), joined hands to meet the need, serving as a poignant reminder of the significance of collective action during crisis. Amidst this backdrop, a remarkable initiative arose that has been quietly transforming lives over the past two years.
Uniting for a Common Cause
A coalition of organizations and individual supporters first embarked on this mission of compassion in Afghanistan two years ago. The body of Christ came together to establish 32 safe houses and provide immediate relief to over 3,000 individuals and families seeking refuge from threats from the Taliban. These safe houses have served as not only temporary shelters but also disciple-making communities. This collaboration exemplified the power of unity: looking past differences to accomplish a shared goal…save lives.
Reflecting on Progress, Recognizing Challenges
Amidst the success stories, a pressing need remains. As the third year of the mission unfolds, sixteen men, women, and children spread across four safe houses still await their chance to embrace freedom and safety. While the safe houses have been instrumental, they represent only a stepping stone toward the ultimate goal of securing a safe environment for these families to rebuild their lives.
No One Left Behind
To address this urgent need, we are launching an initiative to raise $200,000. This funding will facilitate the relocation of the remaining families and sustain the operations of the safe houses for at least six months.
Your support will cover a range of essentials:
- Safe house provisions
- Accommodation costs
- Transportation, including flights
- Legal documentation, passports, and visas
- Nutritious sustenance
- Utilities and internet connectivity
- Vital medical care and supplies
- Vocational training and employment assistance
- Fuel for transportation
- Holistic care, both medical and spiritual
- Security measures to safeguard lives
Becoming a Beacon of Hope
This opportunity is simply an extension of a broader mission to transform countless lives for Christ. By rallying together on projects like these, we can continue to support and plant disciple-making communities across the Middle East and beyond. This initiative is a part of GCM, which embodies the call to make disciples in even the most challenging corners of the world.
Taking a Stand
The call to action is clear: become one of the one thousand new partners who pledge a monthly contribution of at least $59. By doing so, you not only become an integral part of the solution for these four families but also play a vital role in ensuring that the light of Christ continues to shine in the midst of darkness. Your generosity will create a ripple effect that resonates across borders and impacts lives in profound ways. In a world in need of compassion, solidarity, and hope, your support can make a tangible difference.
In Unity, Faith, and the Boundless Love of Christ.
