Featured Projects

Afghanistan Relief

Afghan Christians are at risk following the Taliban take-over in August 2021. Thousands crossed land borders into neighbouring countries like Pakistan seeking safety. Others are in a perilous situation in Afghanistan. Partners International is supporting refugees in Pakistan and Christians in need in Afghanistan. Our local partners already had existing programs to safe-house people at risk. We are using that experience to care for and disciple Afghan refugees. Your gift will help provide immediate help with food and other basic needs like accommodation as we work to stabilize displaced families and help believers still in Afghanistan.

Angolan Refugee Relief

Namibia is suffering through the worst long-term drought in 90 years. It is so severe that way back in June of 2019 the president declared a state of emergency.  Since then, conditions have only deteriorated. The drought is causing the death of wildlife and the displacement of people. Namibians are resilient but these and other challenges are insurmountable for those facing starvation. Namibia has one of the highest states of economic inequality in the world.  Its extreme poverty rate is projected to rise to 18.9% in 2022 (World Bank). Unemployment is high and particularly affects women (38%) and young people (43%).  Around 15% of the adult population is infected with the AIDS virus. The economy is in freefall, shrinking by almost 10% in the last two years. Covid-19 is only adding to the challenges. In March of 2021 starving Himba tribespeople people started arriving out of the Kalahari desert seeking care in Namibia. We are providing life-saving nutrition and medical support to these people.
