According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, a refugee is someone who has been forced to flee from his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence. Governments normally guarantee the basic human rights and physical security of their citizens, but when people become refugees this safety net disappears. Refugees fleeing war or persecution are often in a very vulnerable situation. They have no protection from their own state, and in many cases, it is often their own government that is threatening to persecute them. If other countries do not let them in and do not protect and support them once they arrive, then they may be condemning them to an intolerable situation where their basic rights, security, and in some cases their lives, are in danger. A recent study by the UNHCR showed that there are over 22 million refugees worldwide (the largest number since World War II). This is a global humanitarian issue that is widespread and needs to be addressed with both immediate life-saving and also longer-term sustainable solutions.
‘Skolombo Boys’ and ’Lacasera Girls’ are homeless children who beg for alms and scavenge for recyclable materials on the street. From roaming the street for survival in bands, some have formed into criminal gangs. They have been associated with incidents of robbery, kidnapping, rape, pick-pocketing, and drug abuse. TETMI serves the needs of these street kids and vulnerable youth in the town of Calabar by providing outreach, care and mentoring.
Türkiye and Syria Earthquake Relief...
On February 6th Canadians woke up to the news of tragedy in southern Türkiye and northern Syria. At the time of writing, the death toll of the earthquakes has surpassed 50,000.
The needs are immense. Millions have been left without shelter to face winter temperatures and freezing rain. Food and clean water are in very short supply.
One of our longstanding partners is ready to offer emergency aid through a local leader and volunteer team in Aleppo, Syria. Another partner in northern Türkiye has sent truckloads of supplies to affected areas.
Beyond the immediate provision of life-saving supplies, our partners have started to construct safe 'tiny-homes' which will serve as semi-permanent dwellings for families who lost their homes.
Please give generously.
UPG Harvester Training Program...
The Harvester program provides 5-month discipleship and community development training for mostly first-generation believers from Nepal's unreached people groups. There are separate intakes each year for approximately 20 women and 20 men. Harvester training plays a key role in our vision to establish vibrant communities of faith among every unreached people group in Nepal. Graduates go back to their communities to strengthen and grow the church and apply the community development skills they have learned to improve the lives of people in their community. Some of the skills include sewing, conservation farming, primary health care, and animal husbandry.
