Love in Action

Jesus shared the greatest commandment for His Church: love God and love your neighbour. Whether it’s giving a furry goat, building a well or contributing to a life-saving surgery—meeting the practical needs of our neighbours through the local Church is a dynamic testimony to Christ’s all-encompassing love.

Animals

Love is... An oink, an moo and a cock-a-doodle-do

Loving our neighbour means ensuring every child has their daily bread. Livestock are unique gifts that both feed and breed. The gift of animals extends further than providing food. It also serves as an extra source of income for families in the marketplace, so you give double the love!

Why choose one animal when you can give them all? With two goats, a pig and a chicken, you can impact families in a really boisterous way!

  • Goats (2x) $200
  • Pigs $150

Wellness

Love is... Loaves of bread and a safe, covered bed!

Loving like Jesus means caring for physical needs. Children living in poverty often lack basic necessities and care to keep themselves healthy—like nutritious food and mosquito nets. These gifts of wellness will allow kids in poverty to be protected so they can get back to just being kids!

When you give one of each of our health gifts, you are ensuring that children and their families have the basic necessities they need to stay healthy!

  • Mosquito nets $20
  • Heart surgery share $100
  • Feed malnourished children $60

Education

Love is... Bicycle gears and learning with peers!

Love looks like every child having a voice and an opportunity. Children need dreams and goals—and the opportunity to chase them. Every child deserves an education, without barriers due to economic status. These gifts will enable children to dream big and make a lasting impact in their lives and in their community!

When you give one of each of our education gifts, you are equipping children in poverty to pursue an education safely and successfully, bursting open a life of possibilities!

  • Bicycles $100
  • Early education $120
  • Textbooks $30

Water

Love is... A drip, a drop and an overflowing cup!

Living like Jesus means ensuring every cup is full and every thirst is quenched. Many children living in poverty lack access to safe water and proper sanitation. Out of desperation, they travel many kilometres just to gather from water sources that are contaminated. Gifts of water will ensure that children and their families have access to water that is clean, drinkable and life giving!

When you give a water bundle, you are helping provide impoverished communities with water filters, wells, rainwater harvesting systems—and with one of their most basic rights—clean and drinkable water!

  • Well share $100
  • Water filters $68

Community Needs

Love is... Children freed and meeting need!

Love looks like shouldering the needs of our brothers and sisters. When it comes to building up communities, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Sometimes solutions are long-term, and other times, immediate. No matter how it looks, building healthy communities means bearing the burdens of others—whether the needs are physical, social or spiritual.

In New Longoro, Ghana, families have lost their primary source of income—as fishing has been banned in the local lake. Because of this, parents aren’t able to provide basic necessities to their children. With this gift, you can partner with the local church to launch a child development centre. You’ll be helping 200 children access the basic necessities that will allow them to attend school, access health care, hear the gospel and build hope for a future!
