Incorporated in 1985, Christian Relief Services was founded on the belief that community partnerships are the best way to solve problems related to poverty, both here in the United States and around the world.
The Mission of Christian Relief Services is to work through partnerships and in collaboration with grassroots charitable groups, churches and human service agencies, to connect the vast resources of America to help those in need in their own local communities and to enable people to help themselves.
Because we believe that the global community is our community, we try to help as many people as we can, regardless of location. We work locally, domestically and internationally, primarily in Africa.
Through partnerships with local, non-governmental organizations and our affiliates, we provide donations of food, medical supplies, hygiene items, school supplies and building materials to hospitals, clinics, schools, orphanages and refugee camps in several African countries. We have programs in Sierra Leone, Kenya, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zambia, Somalia and Burundi.
