Weather, illness and civil unrest can pose unforeseen crises in the communities we serve. Whether it's a pandemic or a draught, we want to be prepared with the funds and resources to get our Christian communities the help they need quickly.
COVID-19 hit Pakistan hard. With tight living quarters, poor hygiene practices and little to no government assistance, the virus spread rapidly and families were dramatically affected. During this unprecedented time, SMI was able to provide numerous families with masks, soap and food. In the village of Partapura, we distributed essential food and supplies to 40 Christian families during a national quarantine.
