Operation Compassion: A Ministry of Blessing has been helping underserved and poor children, widows, senior adults and single parent families for more than 15 years. From the humble beginnings of $200 and a pick-up truck to deliver product, Operation Compassion has grown into a more than $100 million a year nonprofit charity.
Hunger continues to plague an estimated one billion people – one in five persons around the world. Thirteen to eighteen million people, mostly children, die from hunger-related causes each year. That’s 35,000 people a day, over 1,000 every hour.
In the terrible aftermath of tornadoes and destructive power of torrential rainfall, Operation Compassion is organizing its disaster relief partners for Texas and Oklahoma. Operation Compassion is putting in place multiple sites where survivors are able to find assistance with food, clothing, water and other emergency supplies.
Operation Compassion has a worldwide scope of ministry and assistance to the underserved and non-served populations. While we are proud of our accomplishments outside the United States, Operation Compassion fills a vital role assisting those same populations inside the United States. To this end, Operation Compassion sent more than 235 semi-trucks to rural and urban America.
Operation Compassion has been working on inventories for the last several weeks in preparation of sending health and medical supplies to the country of Ivory Coast in West Africa. Prior to their recent civil war, Ivory Coast had one of the best medical/health plans for their citizens. Their infrastructure was able to handle most any illness or surgical needs at no cost to its populace. However, that has all changed.
