State of the Union..Poverty Addition

The State of the Union occurs Tuesday night. It has been a historical opportunity for previous U.S. Presidents lay out their agendas and put a spin on what they feel is the direction the country needs to take. Unfortunately, over time this has become more about the party in power cheering and the other side sitting on their hands in disapproval. What if we were cut to the chase and tell it like it is?

There are 1.2 billion people that are living in poverty. While people in the western world continue to argue how to waste money and resources on their various agendas, children are dying every 30 seconds someplace in a distant land. This is not to say that our various governments do not have organizations in place to address some of these needs, but truthfully, many lack the attention and support to actually execute the services to be accountable and transparent in their efforts. This is where organizations like Medical Ministry International stand in the gap.

As we speak, there are 70+ volunteers headed into the Philippines to support the MMI Philippines team to address the issues related to Typhoon Haiyan. Unfortunately, we are in need of $13,000 in equipment adn supplies and currently do not have the funds to dedicate to this effort. This is a direct way for anyone to touch the lives of someone half way around the world without any red tape holding back the impact. If this motivates you to help, you can donate here now.

MMI is not an organization that is the preverbial black hole for funds. We work hard to be transparent and accountable and our teams seek be people of excellence in all we say and do. You can be assured that your investment will yield significant results and we will be happy to provide the details of the effort you support to prove it.

So as many of you sit around and listen to all the rhetoric, do not let it get you down. There are organizations like MMI that are making an impact on the world’s problems and you can help to make a difference. This is God’s work and we are honored to serve.
