Our Mission

The mission of Christ for the Poor is to educate the members of the communities we serve and to contribute to the development and growth of these communities.

What We Do

Christ for the Poor (CFP) is a non-profit international health and poverty relief organization. We offer programs and support in Central and South America and the Caribbean to assist communities devastated by war, poverty and hunger

In addition to our HIV Support Program which provides a continuous supply of milk and vitamins for HIV patients at La Mascota Hospital in Managua, Nicaragua, CFP provides educational opportunities to at-risk members of the communities we serve.

We are fulfilling our vision to create awareness of the need for education through active teaching and vocational training through our Christ for the Poor’s Vocational Institute and our Community Outreach Program.

We welcome your donations to help us continue to help new communities that need our help.  We also invite you to support us as a Volunteer or to participate in one of our Special Language Programs or Missionary Trips.

CFP is deeply grateful to those who have supported us from our beginning in 2007. We look forward to an exciting and challenging future helping those in need in the name of Jesus Christ.

They looked unto him and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
Psalm: 34:5, 6
