Natural disasters and impoverished circumstances make daily life an unbearable activity for millions of people. The Olivet Assembly Humanitarian Ministry works to bring comfort and encouragement to those affected by such circumstances through the offering of food, shelter and medical assistance.
OA’s Humanitarian Ministry carries out its work by mobilizing staff members and volunteers for emergency and long term relief activities. For emergency situations, the ministry usually carries out an initial inspection of the disaster to determine the type of response that is needed, whether a team will be sent out and/or an appeal will be launched. In many circumstances, WOA’s humanitarian arm coordinates with other relief agencies to share responsibilities and resources.
The Humanitarian Ministry’s staff are located in over 40 countries around the world and holds regular events to promote awareness of its work.
The Humanitarian Ministry of the Olivet Assembly brings relief to people struck by emergencies or living in poverty around the world. The ministry seeks to fulfill God’s calling to serve the least among us by providing living essentials and emotional counseling to those in need.
