Short-term missions guidance
Helping Children Worldwide endorses a resource from Faith to Action which will help our missioners and volunteers become more effective advocates for the Child Reintegration Centre and Mercy Hospital.
Faith to Action sought recommendations and input from more than 50 stakeholders, including practitioners engaged in sending and receiving short-term missions, pastors, mission leaders, faith-based organizations, and academic leaders, to create this resource.
