Support Life, Sponsor a Child!

Medical Mission in Mexico
Medical Mission in Mexico

Summer is officially upon us! For many of us, that means plans for a summer of fun with friends and family, ocean and waves, picnics and BBQs, hikes at dawn, and ballgames at the park. For CERI, summer means mission trips traveling the globe to help children in need.

This summer CERI will be in Moldova for the sponsor trip, a special opportunity for child sponsors to spend quality time with the children and youth they support through child sponsorships. Also in Moldova, teams from across the U.S. will travel in and out of the country all summer long conducting fun summer camps for children and youth.

Teams will also serve in Mexico and Paraguay through medical missions, while teams return to South Africa and Sri Lanka to plant sustainable trench gardens and encourage the continued development and growth of CERI’s microenterprise program. Mission season comes to an end with our December Kids ‘n Boots mission to Moldova where teams of volunteers personally fit children in need with brand new warm, winter boots.

Your gifts continue to impact children in need of child sponsors in Mexico! Thank you for trusting CERI to be a vessel of your generosity to the world. On behalf of the those we serve every single day…

Mission season comes to an end with our December Kids ‘n Boots mission to Moldova where teams of volunteers personally fit children in need with brand new warm, winter boots. In order to be ready for Kids ‘n Boots this December, CERI must kick off fundraising with ‘Christmas in July.’ Will you help us jumpstart our goal?

Your gifts continue to impact children and youth in need around the globe! Thank you for trusting CERI to be a vessel of your generosity to the world. On behalf of the those we serve every single day…

Christmas in Spring!

Happy recipient of new warm, winter boots!
Happy recipient of new warm, winter boots!

Each year before Christmas, Children's Emergency Relief International (CERI) travels to Eastern Europe with teams of U.S. Volunteers who outfit children who are orphaned and deprived with brand new warm, winter boots, socks, hats, and scarves. This year will be no different. In December, teams will depart for Moldova to distribute boots among the poorest villages throughout the country.

Raising money to buy boots is a year-long endeavor, and your generosity makes all the difference in the world. Would you believe that gifts for Kids 'n Boots are already coming in?  It's the dedication of donors like you who make the work CERI does day-after-day, year-after-year possible. Thank you again for your year-round support of CERI's worthwhile Kids 'n Boots project!
