$228

Posted by & filed under Africa, Asia, Central America, Devotions.

$228. That’s how much it cost. I was shocked. How can one bottle of medicine cost me that much? But I didn’t have an alternative. I had malaria. That was the only medicine available. What can you do? You pay it. But I thought of all my friends living in Kenya where I got malaria. Most of them couldn’t pay that much for malaria drugs. Maybe their pharmacies don’t charge U.S. prices, but they still often don’t have enough to cover the cost. So they do without. Some are ok. Unfortunately, some are not. More than 1,000 people die from malaria every day because they can’t access or pay for the medical care they need. And many others can’t afford… Read more »

Will You Run to Help?

She had a tear running down her cheek. But she wasn’t crying. Djinailove’s dad was in prison. Her mother had just been murdered. She had recently moved to Cap Haitien, Haiti and was hoping to go to school. She needed a place to stay and food to eat. She had plenty of reasons to cry. But her tears were actually caused by a medical issue—a hole near her eye that somehow caused tears to run down her cheek. She needed a doctor to help her with her unusual problem—but that took money. What Djinailove really needed was a child sponsorship. Have you ever left a worship service before it was over? That’s what Dr. Rachel Philip did, but not for… Read more »

What do you want for Christmas?

Posted by & filed under Child Sponsorship, For Sponsors, HIV & AIDS.

“If you could have anything in the world, what would you want?” That’s the question Larry Wu asked all of the CRF children at the Lakeside Orphanage near Kisumu, Kenya. It’s a pretty thought provoking question, isn’t it? It’s a lot like, “What do you want for Christmas?” If someone asks me what I want for Christmas, my mind can explore all kinds of options. And most of them are possible. This year I want that new Kindle reader that’s waterproof. And I kind of want a high tech camera too. Will I get them? Probably. I have the means. I have the desire. I tend to get what I really want. It’s possible. Not so much for AIDS orphans… Read more »

CRF Got a Christmas Present Too!

Posted by & filed under Clean Water.

WHAT DID CRF GET FOR CHRISTMAS? MORE MATCHING FUNDS FOR WATER WELLS! We are happy to announce that our matching funds for water wells have been renewed for 2018!

We are so grateful to all of you! We know it can be difficult to… Read more »

Our Ongoing Relief Work

Posted by & filed under Disaster Relief.

CRF is continuing to help in South Texas. We have partnered with Disaster Response Team.  We are currently in the rebuilding stage. Our team will probably be there for years.  If you want to join them in rebuilding, contact us. Rebuilding is always the most expensive part of disaster relief, so we could use more funds to help. Carlos Carbajal (right) grew up as one of our sponsored children in Honduras. He now has a powerful ministry in Miami. Carlos led a team to help Hurricane victims in Immokalee, Florida. This was one of the poorest places in the US before the hurricane; now it is worse. Hardly any assistance went to this area until Carlos and CRF helped. The… Read more »
