Compassion Services

Compassion Services is bringing Christ's love to the suffering and needy in very practical ways. GFA missionaries and volunteers assist survivors of natural disasters by providing food, water, medical care, clothing and even shelter. Teams also minister to slum dwellers and leprosy patients in some of Asia and Africa's major cities. And all is done with a clear Gospel witness. You can be a part of this effort by helping provide resources like:

Outdoor Toilet


More than a billion people worldwide have no choice but to relieve themselves out in the open, which poses many risks, especially for women and girls who venture into open fields under the cover of darkness. Private outdoor toilets spare families from disease found at communal waste grounds and protect the dignity of men and women.



Most families in the impoverished areas in which GFA serves have little or no insulation or indoor heating. Those who sleep on the streets are even more exposed to the cold. Blankets provide comfort and protection and serve as tangible expressions of Christ’s love.

Slum Ministry

Tens of millions of people around the world live in the squalor of slums—in one-room shanties, usually without electricity, running water or toilets. But through slum ministry, people in slums have the chance for a better life. GFA missionaries serving in slums teach adult literacy classes and tutor children. They disseminate information about health and hygiene. They distribute income-generating gifts, along with practical gifts, like water filters, toilets and clothing. They also share with slum dwellers about the greatest gift anyone could gain: the love of God.

Medical Ministry


Your gift towards medical ministry can help provide free medical care and health education for people who are suffering and dying from treatable ailments. GFA missionaries host medical camps in impoverished villages and invite teams of nurses, doctors and other health care professionals to provide free medical care. One medical camp may serve 200 to 1,000 people. Helping provide medical care for a family of five costs as little as $5.

Through medical ministry, families that lack access to medication or have never been taught basic hygiene can receive life-saving treatment and health education, all in the name of the Great Physician, Jesus Christ.

Compassion Services


Compassion Services meets the needs of people in dire situations. During the coronavirus pandemic, for example, GFA missionaries provided face masks, soap, groceries and cooked meals to thousands of people impacted by lockdowns.

When you give to Compassion Services you help enable us to serve people in many needed ways, such as ministering to those in slums and leprosy colonies and even bringing medical care to remote areas. Each area of ministry provides practical, relevant help during times of crisis, such as when poverty becomes life-threatening or after natural disasters. Through these ministries, GFA missionaries are revealing God’s compassion to people in desperate need.
