Blankets of Love
For several years now, Global Action has provided thousands of blankets for evangelistic outreach in Northern India and Nepal. Winter temperatures drop below freezing and many of the children run around with little or no clothing. In 2010, it was estimated that over 10,000 people in all of India died because of the bitter cold. We use these blankets in the slums of Delhi, Kolkata, Lucknow, the surrounding villages like Motipur, as well as in the foothills of the Himalayas and leper colonies around Hyderabad. In 2012, we also were able to give warm sweaters to children at the HIV hospital, providing the warmth of Jesus they can feel everyday!
These blankets are an evangelistic tool that helps the local church to reach out to their communities in a practical way. Our GLOMOS students and pastors help us distribute and minister during these outreaches. These blankets also serve as a good vehicle for international team members to link arms with Indian brothers and sisters in Christ, with one purpose of sharing the love and saving truth of Jesus.
Cost Per Blanket: $7
We want to provide at least 3,000 blankets this winter and medicine for the sick. If you would like to provide blankets and clothing this winter for these needy people in North India and Nepal, please click the link below to donate. Thank you!
