You're Helping Families in Haiti Rebuild!

You
You're helping Jean, and his children rebuild!

From the moment Hurricane Matthew made landfall in Haiti, your generosity enabled us to quickly stockpile tarps, and begin distributing shelter materials, and hundreds of mosquito nets to keep families safe from disease-carrying mosquitoes. 

Thanks to you, our emergency response teams on the ground were able to distribute hygiene kits and food packs to the most needy, and work with partners to identify communities where diseases such as Cholera, and other water-borne illnesses would threaten the poorest families.

Jean is just one of the people that have been impacted by your quick action and generosity. When he heard the front wall of his home crack, and fall to the ground in the middle of the night, Jean yelled for his two young daughters and they all fled for their lives.

“When the house started swaying, I decided to take the kids and leave … everything was destroyed, nothing is standing,”

But as with many in his community, Hurricane Matthew flattened more than just Jean’s home. His plantain trees—the family’s only source of income—were uprooted and washed away. Years of work, and his future income was gone. 

As the weeks become months, your gifts will enable World Concern to remain close to people like Jean, and communities that have suffered from this disaster. We will work together with survivors and community groups to implement medium, and long-term shelter opportunities, and water and sanitation solutions that work to protect families and help them heal.

“I have to rebuild the house,” Jean says.

Your gifts are giving people like Jean hope, and the capacity to recover, and rebuild. Thank you so much for your gifts, and for making a difference in the lives of people affected by Hurricane Matthew.

So Many Children are Safer Thanks to YOU!

Your gifts are giving girls like Kyung hope!
Your gifts are giving girls like Kyung hope!

Your gifts are making a signficant impact in the fight against child trafficking, and helping to save young girls, and give them hope, and opportunity to avoid the dangers in Sri Lanka.

We want you to know that over the past few months, your generosity has reached a staggering 4,198 children at risk. Without your help, these girls would be vulnerable, and exposed to the hands of predators. But thanks to your compassion, each child now has an understanding of their rights, and is more aware of the evil that is around them.

In dozens of small villages near the Thai border, you're helping rescue innocent girls, and young women, and preventing further abuse, and exploitation by raising awareness of their rights in the community. Your support is helping start Children’s Clubs in the villages, establishing counseling, and job training opprotunities, and supporting telephone hotlines that allow the community to report suspicious activities involving children. 

But surrounded by poverty, girls can still be easily exploited. The need for money and a lack of opportunity is putting girls llike Kyung at great risk.

When Kyung was only thirteen, she was approached by an older man who told her about the amazing opportunities for work in Thailand. Having lived her entire life in poverty, Kyung was excited to earn some extra money and help her family, but had no idea what the man had planned for her.

Sadly, Kyung didn’t find the hope she was looking for. Instead, she left for Thailand and was exposed to poor working conditions, fifteen-hour work days, manipulative and demanding bosses, and worse. But understandably, Kyung doesn’t want to talk about those horrifying experiences.

Today, your gifts are giving Kyung and others like her new hope.

When girls like Kyung return to their villages, and to their families, your support is there to show them that there are better options. You're helping to provide job training for girls like Kyung to learn skills that allow her to find safe, and meaningful work closer to home, and away from the danger in Thailand. 

Thank you so much for what you’re doing, and for helping seek out and stop trafficking in places like Sri Lanka. You're making an enormous difference, but please don't stop as there are countless girls like Kyung that need continued, and generous support to keep them safe.

Your Gifts are Reaching Families!

Thankful Families Receive Your Gifts!
Thankful Families Receive Your Gifts!

We can’t thank you enough for reaching out, and helping displaced families in South Sudan. You’re making a tangible difference in their lives, and giving them hope when they need it most.

As a reminder, these precious people have been robbed of almost everything. They lost their homes, and livelihoods when tribal violence swept through their communities, and now they’re desperately trying rebuild their lives, and earn meaningful incomes.

It’s still a very challenging time for these families. The violence and civil unrest continues to plague the country, and countless families are still seeking help at the temporary camps. Despite this, we want you to know that your gifts are getting through, and making a tangible difference.

You’re providing real help, and giving these families hope when they need it most. The biggest challenge continues to be the dire need for food, water, and shelter. Many families live in deplorable conditions, exposed to the rain and lacking any kind of privacy.

But we want you to know that you’re helping them. Your generosity has already given plastic sheeting, bedding, and, other materials to more than 720 of the most needy families. And every day more, and more people are benefiting from your support.

We are so grateful for you, and want to humbly thank you on behalf of the hundreds of families that you’re supporting through this difficult time.
