Lending A Hand: Sam's Club Volunteers give up Saturday to help IA

One of International Aid’s greatest blessings is that our ministry is surrounded by a community of socially-minded corporations that desire to see healing brought to a hurting world.

Some of these corporations help our ministry by providing the aid we send to our partners — the medical equipment, the health products, the medicines, the nutritional supplements. Other businesses provide the funds that enable us to continuing reconditioning medical equipment and distributing aid to nonprofits worldwide.

Then there are some companies—like the Muskegon, Mich. Sam’s Club —that help International Aid by getting their hands dirty.

International Aid teams up with The Cancer Fund of America

International Aid teams up with The Cancer Fund of America

There are some organizations that International Aid can’t help but partner with. Their hearts for ministry move us to action, their mission resonates with the calling God has given our organization, and the people who receive their aid linger in our hearts, minds and prayers.

One of those partners is The Cancer Fund of America, Inc.

The Cancer Fund of America provides assistance to cancer patients who live in poverty and cannot afford to meet basic needs due to the financial strain placed on them by cancer treatment costs. According to their website, the nonprofit “provides aid to thousands of cancer victims and their families every day.” This aid is given free-of-cost.

Some of these patients are elderly and alone. Others are parents to young children. Others are elementary students who just want to feel normal again. Others are infants whose parents simply can’t pay both the medical and grocery bills.
