Through our .gives (food.gives and medical.gives) initiatives, Barnabas Fund has sent more than 350 tonnes of aid to needy Christians in different parts of the world in just over eight months.
Around 144 tonnes of ePap – a porridge containing protein, vitamins and nutrients – have been delivered to Zimbabwe, while just over 200 tonnes of mixed aid – dry foodstuff, clothes, blankets, nappies, hygiene and sanitary products – have been sent for Ukraine.
Desperately needed food aid has also been shipped to Madagascar, Tonga and Pakistan.
Barnabas has committed to sending a further 73 containers, carrying around a thousand tonnes of aid for countries in Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere. Some of this aid is already on the road or at sea.
When these deliveries have been completed Barnabas will have sent a total of 95 containers to Christian communities around the world.
“We are grateful that the Lord has used our .gives initiative to provide for our needy brothers and sisters,” said Barnabas Fund International CEO Hendrik Storm.
“We are also grateful to our supporters,” added Storm, “who have responded with sacrificial generosity and helped fill our lorries and containers with tonnes of food and practical aid.”
