USA (MNN) — International Aid generally sends medical supplies and relief overseas, but some national opportunities are too good to pass up.
International Aid describes The Cancer Fund of America, Inc. as an organization that "moves us to action, their mission resonates with the calling God has given our organization, and the people who receive their aid linger in our hearts, minds and prayers."
The Cancer Fund of America provides assistance to cancer patients who live in poverty and cannot afford to meet basic needs due to the financial strain placed on them by cancer treatment costs. According to their Web site, the nonprofit "provides aid to thousands of cancer victims and their families every day." This aid is given free-of-cost.
Some of these patients are elderly and alone. Some are parents to young children. Some are elementary students who just want to feel normal again. Some are infants whose parents can't afford to pay both the medical and grocery bills.
For years, International Aid has supported The Cancer Fund of America by connecting them with socially-conscious organizations and providing them with aid at a minimal service fee. In the past two months alone, International Aid has shipped the Cancer Fund of America assorted over-the-counter medications, protein bars, mouthwash, burn gel, antibiotics, hydrocortisone, hand wipes, soap, body wash, shampoo and conditioner.
International Aid is able to spread the love of Christ by reaching out as He would to the poor and sick. Pray that as cancer patients receive this generosity, they would be inclined to explore the Gospel more.
