Thank you for helping us reach our 2018 Global Impact Celebration Give Now goal of $75,000 in just four days! These funds will further mobilize the spreading of the Hope of Jesus Christ around the world, even in the face of injustice!
The $75,000 will immediately be dispersed to aid in the following 5 projects:
Egypt ranks low in gender equity compared to majority countries worldwide. For this reason, girls and women in Egypt are not to become educated. Those that choose to rebel are often kidnapped and their families persecuted. RUMC missionaries with TMS Global are working to build a hostel inside their preexisting orphanage in Egypt to provide a safe place to house, protect and to minister to these girls while they pursue their education and become the best version of themselves.
To aid the sustainability of the Divine Providence Training Center and meet the local needs in the community created by poverty, lack of clean water, and inadequate access to health care and housing, Divine Providence has launched the Clean Water Project. A water purification plant has been installed on the land to get water to those in need and sell in the market place. In order to do this, they need vehicles to transport this water over Kenya’s rugged dirt roads. The investment in these vehicles is an investment into the education of a pastor and will increase the number of those better trained to bring clean water and the gospel into their communities.
More than 10,000 people in Atlanta experience homelessness on any given night. Over 40% of Atlanta's homeless population are women and children. The Drake House exists to provide private housing and programs for homeless single mothers and their children in North Metro Atlanta. The Drake Village is the newest program of The Drake House, doubling their available capacity and allowing families to remain in the program longer as they move to true stability.
70% of people living in Honduras are living below the poverty line. 30% of children drop out of school to work in the fields to put food on their families table. This is a vicious cycle of poverty, lack of education and lost opportunities. RUMC mission partners, Lunches for Learning and Missions in Action, have teamed up in rural Honduras to aid in addressing this cycle with plans of a launching a technical further enriching community and economic development.
RUMC missionaries with TMS Global have established a clinic in the Middle East serving Syrian refugees and displaced people affected by the wars in the region. This clinic is run by volunteer doctors, nurses, mobilizers and translators. The need is great for clinical and ministerial supplies at the clinic to allow the clinic to continue to be a place of healing, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
