From CMMB: Do more this Lent.

 in 2014, your generosity made it possible for CMMB to improve the lives of more than 500,000 people—including the most vulnerable women and children—with life-changing medicines, healthcare, sanitation, and other vital services.
All over the world, through all cultures and religions, people practice periods of fasting. Buddhist monks fast on the days of the new moon and full moon. During the month of Ramadan, Muslims take no food or water at all between sun up and sun down. Jews fast several times a year, most importantly on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

During the forty days of Lent, many of us will act in the same spirit and choose to “give up” something—in part, as a reminder of those who suffer around the world or are unable to meet their basic survival needs.
Donate this Lent
As you know, many of the people CMMB serves have so little already—no running water, no electricity, sometimes only the most basic shelter and inadequate access to food—that there is barely anything they could give up for Lent or in observation of a similar practice.

You can make a difference. Your donation this Lent offers people in need the care they deserve.

Thank you for being a part of the CMMB community bringing hope and healing to the most disadvantaged communities. Together, we change lives.

Bruce Wilkinson,
President & CEO
