COVID-19 Pandemic: Help Us Provide Relief

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a devastating impact around the world, especially among the most under-resourced communities. Your gift to the Global Compassion Fund will allow us to support BIC churches around the world as they seek to provide relief in their communities.

About

Join us in meeting practical and urgent needs around the world.

Motivated by the love of Christ, for more than 45 years we as the Brethren in Christ (BIC) family have come together to address international natural disasters, humanitarian aid crises, and extreme poverty.

We work hand in hand with international Brethren in Christ churches — together meeting needs restoratively. Our close relationships with local churches and partners, in some cases spanning more than 100 years, enable us to quickly and effectively aid people who need help most.

In the last 5 years, we have provided immediate, life-giving resources to people in 12 countries, showing the love of Christ tangibly around the world.

Note: Formerly the “World Hunger Fund,” the ministry began in 1974 to provide hunger relief in countries with a BIC presence.
