Combatting Malnutrition in Venezuela

Many people in Venezuela are battling malnutrition and health problems due to increased unemployment rates, as well as the increasing inflation affecting everyone. COVID-19 has multiplied the need, and we are thankful to be involved in a project that is helping with the nutritional needs of families of twelve of our churches in Venezuela.

“I am very thankful for the help you have given us both in the food package and the medicine we received.  These provisions came just at the right time when we needed them the most…May God continue to bless you as you reach out to help other in need.” – Carmen, a member of El Vinedo church.

It is through your support that we are able to fund this project. We are showing God’s love to these communities, where we will be able to share the Gospel and love our neighbour through reaching approximately 400 families that are in a severe state of poverty.

Jose, a member of El Vinedo church, said “First of all, I want to give thanks to God and the church for the food package you have given me and my family. I also want to give thanks to the Canadian church for making this help possible because of their donations during this time of crisis in Venezuela. This help has come at a time of great need. Thank you.”

Jose is right! It is through your support and the support of churches that we are able to meet this need. This project is funded through the Global Emergency Response Fund (GERF), a pool of money used to support emergency response projects.

GERF has helped so many over the years because of donors such as you. Disaster relief is vital at unpredictable times and COVID-19 is just so.

The need is urgent. We are participating in an Alliance World Fellowship global initiative that is funding 28 projects in 19 different countries for COVID-19 relief. We need your help to sustain GERF as our funding is running low. Please make a donation here so that we can continue reaching physical and spiritual needs all over the world.
