HUMANITARIAN AID

Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? When thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward.
— Isaiah 58:6-8

1 John 3:17 reads: “But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?” It is the love of God in the soul that gives the impetus to help those in need. Come Over and Help is partnering with a number of ministries that reach out to the needy both within and outside of the church. For example, the Daily Bread program in Turda, Romania provides a home-cooked meal 5 days per week to the needy as well as a monthly food parcel, distributed by diaconal workers.

COAH is also supporting a number of poor Christian families in Ukraine with regular help via their local church. Indeed, many of the programs supported by COAH have a humanitarian aid element to them.
