I want to start 2018 off by expressing my deep gratitude for putting the people we serve first in your heart.
Because of your compassion ‘for the least of these,’ MAP International was able to serve more people in 2017 than ever in one year. This means more people received life-changing medicines because of you. Here are a few highlights:
MAP International provided life-changing medicines and health supplies for 10.8 million people in 2017. In addition, MAP International's field offices in Africa and Latin America served another 3.4 million people living in impoverished communities.
For victims of hurricanes last fall, MAP International supplied critically-needed antibiotics, bronchodilators, hypertension medicines, analgesic medicine, and hygiene items such as antiseptic wipes, soap for hand-washing and other basic disease prevention measures. More than 300,000 people were helped during this extremely difficult time.
MAP International also provided relief for people fleeing violence in Syria, those trapped by the famine in East Africa, and victims of earthquakes and flooding in Guatemala, Mexico, and Sierra Leone.
Because you made it possible for us to help so many, 2017 was an inspiring year for all of us at MAP International.
Also, because of your generous support, we are well-positioned to do more in 2018. Thank you for contributing to our $100,000 ‘Double Your Gift’ campaign in December. I cannot thank you enough for helping us achieve this extraordinary goal.Like you, I know the ‘cheerful giver’ who put forth this matching gift challenge will be thrilled to know how successful we were in this campaign.
On behalf of the MAP International board of directors and staff, I hope you experience an abundance of blessings in the new year. Please continue to pray for those we serve and that more will open their hearts to compassion in 2018.
