Relief, Development & Justice

An important component of OM’s work is aid and relief. So many in our world live without the basic necessities of life such as food, shelter and education and we believe that bringing God’s kingdom to earth involves a holistic approach to mission and development. OM focuses on field –led projects run by local OM team members to ensure that long term and sustainable development can take place.

OM Near East
Refugee Relief

NEAR EAST

The United Nations estimates that there are currently 6.3 million internally displaced people within Syria and over 4 million refugees that have fled to neighbouring countries. They are in desperate need of humanitarian assistance with most struggling to access the basic necessities of life. Through local churches we are able to provide thousands of families with food packages, health, hygiene and medical assistance as well as winter packages to help them survive the harsh winter conditions. We are also able to train and financially support educators who are assisting the thousands of children no longer able to attend school as well as beginning an income generating project for women.

Shiloh Farms

NEPAL

Shiloh Farms is a project in Nepal that aims to teach Nepalese people sustainable farming techniques. For the last few years, the construction of pigpens and a greenhouse have been in operation. These facilities have been built to teach Nepalese workers how to set up small, profitable enterprises to help support their families. This has included employing women. In Kathmandu, women often struggle to find safe and reliable work where they are not exploited.

OM Bangladesh
Education Project

BANGLADESH

The adult literacy rate in Bangladesh averages at about 50%, and in rural districts that drops considerably. Amongst women it drops even further. Our work in schools reaches to distant village areas, often on the banks or on the islands of Bangladesh's huge rivers. In these area, school availability is limited and adult literacy is low. Many children do not start school and among those that do there is a 50% drop-out rate by class 5. This is usually to do with the need for the children to earn money. Our focus is the adults who have never been able to learn to read and write and the children who have not entered schools and now grown well beyond their class age.

OM Bangladesh
Crisis Response

BANGLADESH

Widespread flooding in Bangladesh has killed 145 people, affected 8 million people across 32 districts, destroyed 103,855 homes and damaged 4,636 educational buildings. The severe flooding has added to the suffering of the Rohingya refugees. There have been reports of cholera outbreaks, water shortages and malnutrition in the Rohingya refugee camps.
