About the project
REGION: Commonwealth of Independent States (former Soviet Union)
COUNRIES: Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Moldova, and Armenia
Generous donors often collect things such as children’s School Pal Packs or medical equipment and supplies to allow local churches to minister to those in need. However, the cost to ship the supplies in cargo containers has to be covered. The cost is about US $4,000 per container, on average. Although the value of what is inside those containers is far higher, NCM still must raise funds to pay for the shipping costs.
Our goals in everything we do is to how the love and compassion of our Lord Jesus Christ as we respond to the needs of children, families, and individuals. Humanitarian aid containers have been a valuable way of supporting existing churches, missions, and new church plants. These containers bring in Crisis Care Kits, clothing, and medical equipment or supplies. The total cost of bringing a 20-foot or 40-foot container is approximately US $3,000 - $5,000, including the customs expenses and in-country transport.
This year, at least 10 containers have arrived to CIS countries containing clothing, Crisis Care Kits, School Pal Packs, and other school or educational supplies. This Humanitarian Aid has supported more than 15,000 families including direct and indirect beneficiaries.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
For $25, $50, or $100 you can help to cover part of the costs needed to get ministry supplies into CIS countries.
For $4,000 you can cover the costs related to shipping an entire container of humanitarian aid supplies.
