Recently, my wife Diana and I were able to partner with Gallery Church in Baltimore and World Vision to provide urgently needed kits for caregivers overseas. The kits are filled with supplies that will help prolong lives, comfort the sick, protect caregivers, and prevent the spread of infection.
Kits contain items including disposable gloves, soap, washcloths, flashlights, batteries, medications, water purification sachets, and personal notes of encouragement. Often, a simple note of encouragement lets caregivers know they are not alone and gives them the strength they need to continue caring for very sick people in every corner of the world.
Diana and I were so touched to learn that these caregivers will save every note they receive because it means so much that they know there is someone in America praying for them.
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. They serve close to 100 million people in nearly 100 countries around the world. World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender. To date, World Vision has trained and equipped over 77,000 caregivers. This year, 350,000 kits have been requested by World Vision field offices to support caregivers.
Diana and I are so honored to be a part of serving the poor and the sick alongside World Vision with the help of Gallery Church of Baltimore. This outreach would not have been possible without the help of Gallery Church.
