If disaster strikes a community, it is natural and loving to ask what can be done to support our neighbors—whether they are down the street or across the globe.
General humanitarian support
Support for general disaster relief is best directed to local and national organizations that specialize in such assistance.
Support for individual Christian Scientists
Individual Christian Scientists in the United States and its territories in need of financial assistance for basic living necessities (food, shelter, clothing), and those interested in financially supporting them, are encouraged to contact The Principle Foundation at +1-816-561-5955 or www.principlefoundation.org.
Individual Christian Scientists affected by international disasters who need assistance, and those interested in financially supporting them, may find helpful resources on Universal Giving’s crisis relief fund webpage, through the Red Cross, and Operation USA. You may also contact the International Service Department of The Mother Church at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Support for Branch Churches
The Mother Church has funds specifically dedicated to assist branch churches and Christian Science societies around the world that have been impacted by extraordinary events. Impacted branches are encouraged to contact The Mother Church at email@example.com to apply for assistance.
If you are interested in contributing to The Mother Church's Relief Fund, which supports branch churches and societies affected by disasters, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that this fund has a global scope to ensure that funds can be directed to where they are most needed.
