Mission International is constantly finding new and innovative ways to bring a ray of hope to those whose lives otherwise might be hopeless. The drive to support the growing number of poor is resourced by 'Ambassadors for the Poor' who serve here at home in the UK in all sorts of ways. Of course there are many ways of raising funds and you can become involved in the process of becoming an 'Ambassador for the Poor' by raising some support in your area, no matter where you live. Young and old alike have something they can offer, whether it be their boundless energy or their experience and skills learned over many years. Please consider putting on an event in your area like a coffee morning/sale of work or a sponsored walk or cycle run. Click here to find out more about 'Ambassadors for the Poor'.
