RELIEF WORK

In the last few years we’ve been able to provide relief in many disasters. Here it has become especially clear how important our worldwide networks are: we have reliable partners in the disaster areas, who can accurately assess emergencies and ensure rapid relief, avoiding red tape but maintaining transparency. In the help we provide we work closely with the Union of Evangelical Free Church Congregations in Germany and the Baptist Relief and Development Network (BreaD).

During the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone this enabled us to provide considerable sums of money for prevention programmes, provide rapid assistance, and support the reconstruction of vital resources. In Turkey, these networks allow EBM INTERNATIONAL to give longer-term assistance to refugees, especially from the neighbouring state of Syria. The aid provided by the small Turkish churches is perceived as a strong example of Christian witness, and ensures wide interest among the public. In India, we frequently help with reconstructive measures after natural disasters. In Peru we’ve supplied more than 3500 Quechua families with seed potatoes and corn seed after severe climate-related disasters in recent years, thus securing their livelihood.
