Week of Compassion
February 17 - February 24
Week of Compassion (WoC) works through a remarkable network of church partner organizations and partnerships that insures that our response to humanitarian needs in the world is efficient, effective and faithful. Through these partnerships, Disciples are able to join a tapestry of caring that brings help and hope to hurting people in every corner of the world.
WOC currently responds to some kind of disaster or emergency somewhere in the world on average of approximately once every one and a half days. Recent major disasters receive much of our attention and resources. At the same time, we continue to respond to other grave humanitarian tragedies. The Global Food Crisis is impacting more and more countries and reversing the modest gains that had been made in recent years against hunger, and has now become one of our most pressing priorities.
Your gifts to the Compassion Response Fund and to ‘Where Most Needed’ enable us to respond immediately to disasters and emergencies – ‘big’ or ‘small’ – as they arise. Designated donations enable us to continue supporting the work of our church partners who continue to respond under some of the most difficult and dangerous circumstances imaginable.
