COVID Compassion Fund

From: $0 – subscription plan available

Latin America, once an epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, continues to face increasing numbers of coronavirus cases. We’ve donated tons (literally) of provisions to under-resourced families, to the elderly and orphans. We’ve prayed for and witnessed to thousands along the way. We’ve provided life-saving medical supplies. Truly, these good works only happen because of your generosity. You, our donors, make COVID Compassion ministry and relief possible.

Focus on Peru’s Pastors

Specifically, through the end of 2021, our COVID Compassion Fund will provide relief to pastors and their families in Peru. The reality of this pandemic has severely affected Peru. Presently, the country has the highest percentage of excess deaths per million worldwide and more than 1,000 daily cases according to the Financial Times of London. John Hopkins reports that Peru has the highest number of deaths per 1,000,000 inhabitants in all of the Americas. This reality is not unknown to thousands of pastors. While faithfully exercising their call to accompany those who are sick, helpless, and living in extreme conditions, pastors have become infected and many have died from COVID-19. In Peru, it is estimated that between 400-1000 pastors have lost their lives due to not having access to medical services or adequate oxygen.

To help meet this need, the Lima Initiative launches this COVID Compassion relief effort titled, “Respira Pastor”, with a funding goal of $20,000. With your financial partnership, we will award grants to assist pastors and their families in Peru who are facing medical emergencies directly caused by COVID-19. Help us to take care of those God has entrusted to care for his flock. Please join this effort as you are able and as the Lord leads.
