Christian Relief agencies are a necessity and are always in need of donations. We see the Federal Government & Red Cross continually reveal themselves to be incompetent and unable to adequately manage disasters & the funding they receive. Christian Agencies, more often than not, have local congregations and offices, which are better organized & have a better grasp of what and where aid is needed. Additionally, their full time staff are not paid the outrageous salaries that pervade in the private & governmental sectors. Salaries paid out of the money you donate to help the victims. No donation to the Christian Relief agencies is too small. Consider, the amount of money that would be raised if every Christian family would donate $10.00 a month for a year! I realize that in a lot of Countries this would represent an impossible sum to afford; yet any donation is better than nothing at all. Let's show the World that we not only talk the talk, but we walk the walk!
The devastation left behind by many natural disasters stagger the mind. The pictures of the scope of the damage are mind-numbing. The vast majority of the survivors have lost everything. Survivors are often homeless and in need of just about everything (food, clean water, clothes, etc.)Christians should be ready to provide aid where needed.
Because the scam, & rip-off artists, are always hard at work trying to steal money from the survivors of disasters, I am listing the web links to several well-established, reputable, Christian Disaster Aid Agencies below, where you can safely donate money. I realize, that the Red Cross, a secular agency, is the #1 relief organization in this Country; but, after the fiasco, and their gross mismanagement, which followed 9/11, I, personally, will not donate to them . Something that is not readily known in this Country, is that the Salvation Army and the Southern Baptist Convention are this Country's #2 and #3 disaster relief providers.
You can safely make donations to:
Southern Baptist Convention
North American Baptist Conference
American Baptists for world Evangelism

Although the following link is not for donations to aid victims of natural disasters, it does provide treatment for the disaster of childhood cancer. It is non-sectarian & provides free, or reduced cost treatment, depending upon a family's income.
