Three Faith-Based Projects Which Are an Inspiration to us All

We are immersed in pride to serve these compassionate, faith-based organizations who are dedicated to helping people in need. From community development to improving communication and providing food in conflict-stricken areas: efforts aimed at alleviating suffering for vulnerable populations.

Why faith-based projects are an inspiration

Faith-based projects enable vulnerable people to recover, so they can concentrate on restarting their lives after a traumatic experience like war or loss of loved ones and property to natural calamities. They strengthen people, making them more aware of their infinite possibilities. Listed below are examples of compassionate, faith-based projects from Raptim clients.

In March 2017, a Hungry For Life team traveled to Haiti to work alongside United Christians International in Pignon. The team of thirteen, worked with the locals to help with a number of construction and community development projects. Among many things, they installed a pump irrigation system for farmers, build latrines and replaced roofs on homes. "From now on I'll step out and show love and compassion to those in need, not just think that someone else can or will do it," a team member stated.

The World Association for Christian Communication (WACC) partnered with CCDN to implement a citizen journalism project in Chitungwiza, Zimbabwe. They developed a training program, which led to the establishment of a network of citizen journalists. So far that network has produced more than 200 news stories and opinion pieces. For example, stories focused on the poor quality of public services available, resulted in an increased attention from local politicians and leaders.

Canadian Foodgrains Bank member World Relief Canada started a free-of-charge Plumpynut program in South Sudan. Plumpynut is a specially designed supplementary food that helps terribly malnourished children regain their health. Approximately 42,000 pregnant and lactating women, as well as young children under certain levels of malnutrition, are receiving treatment through the high-nutrient food program, which totals $460,000.
