NGO Overview, Mission, and Purpose: What We Are About and Who We Help

Operation Christmas Child is a non-profit, Christian organisation providing emergency relief and development assistance to suffering people around the world. Samaritan’s Purse is meeting the physical needs of victims of war, famine, natural disaster, poverty and disease. We ask people around the world to donate a shoe box filled with everyday necessities. As each shoe box gift is hand-delivered to a child in need, it is treasured by the child that receives it, and is a lasting reminder that he or she is precious to God.

NGO "Bottom Line": How Me Make an Impact

Samaritan’s Purse specializes in meeting the immediate, critical needs of victims of conflict, disaster, famine, and epidemics throughout the world, providing emergency food, water, shelter, medicine and other life-saving assistance. Initial emergency relief transitions to recovery and then to ongoing sustainable development. We build churches, trains church leaders and workers, provide Christian literature and funds practical resources to support the activities of local churches and ministry partners in developing countries as they reach out.

NGO Job Openings: Who, Why, Where, When, and for How Much?

We currently need to hire students who will be willing to travel with us to poverty countries around the world to hand out these life changing shoe boxes.
Volunteers at these sites are responsible for the careful packaging and transportation of shoe boxes to one of the seven Processing Centers across the country.This is a community based organization. We do need to fundraise for for the travel part of it, but over all, we just need your time and effort. This organization takes place all the time, we are always grateful to receive boxes, but this event majorly takes place around December. Teams of people are coming together around the country to serve in the specific areas of prayer, church relations, community relations, media relations, and shoe box collection. Opportunities are available to use your gifts in these areas.

Why You Should Join Us...

The experience you will gain from Operation Christmas Child will not only be life changing for the kids, but also for you too. You will never forget the smile on the little boys face after receiving a toothbrush and a pack of crayons in his shoe box. It's an experience everyone should encounter once in their life, you will have a new perspective on life.
