How often?

Every year, our National Missionaries distribute thousands of life-changing gifts to families in need. Income-generating gifts such as sewing machines and fishing nets can empower families to break the cycle of poverty and give their children a better future. Other practical gifts like warm blankets and mosquito nets meet tangible needs and help protect the bearer from sickness.

Each gift is given in Christ’s name, with His love and compassion, and can have a far-reaching impact in people’s lives.

Your gift for Breaking the Cycle of Poverty could go towards:
  • Winter clothing
  • Sewing machines
  • Blankets
  • Rickshaw
  • Pulling cart
  • Fishing nets
  • Mosquito nets
  • Vocational training
  • Tin sheets to form a proper roof
  • Kerosene lanterns

It only takes as little as £10 to have a huge impact in breaking the cycle of poverty and bringing the kind of relief that can only be found in Christ to those who need it.

We are able to do something because of (the church). With this gift, we both, husband and wife, are going to work hard. Now we are assured and have hope that we will be able to (provide for) our family in a far better way in the days to come.

Changing lives eternally

We have the opportunity to change lives not only here and now, but eternally in Asia. Did you know that around 80,000 people die every day in the 10/40 Window? Some of their lives may end without ever hearing about the love of God. We can make a choice today that will forever change the fate of those who have yet to hear.
