HUMANITARIAN PROJECTS

"If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, 'Depart in peace, be warmed and filled but you don't give them the things which are needed, what does it profit?"

                                                                 James 2:15-16

RAIN ON ME 5K

RAIN ON ME 5K

In response to one of the worst droughts to hit Ethiopia in 50 years, YOTC partnered with NGO, WaterAid, to help residents living in the Liben Gamo, Babich, and Toke Kombolcha towns of Central Ethiopia get access to clean running water. YOTC organized Project Rain on Me 5K as well as the Drink or Donate Challenge to help build a rarity water flow system. This provided tens of thousands of residents access to clean running water.

In October of 2018, YOTC’s Humanitarian Team released its prison ministry. Our goal was to raise approximately $1,500 towards donating various items such as books, journals, toiletries, card games and more! The outcome of our efforts towards this "Christ Heart Initiative" titled project was that we exceeded our goal for the number of books donated to Cheltenham Youth Detention Center (75+)! We were able to raise $1,263 (only $237 short of our goal). We were able to fill 60 bags for the teen boys with books, journals, socks, body lotion, and body soap.
