In countries where it is possible for the brethren to be self-supporting and not dependant on foreign aid, we have established ways for them to generate income. In many cases, due to the economy of the country, the brethren cannot afford to start up a business to sustain their families.

An introduction to the "My Overseas Family" project to sponsor church families around the world who have no way of generating income due to country crises or conflicts and illnesses.

VENEZUELA—There are families in various parts of the world who face illness and excessive poverty. Brethren, because of illnesses or conflict in their countries, are faced with unexpected widowhood. Many need help in various ways.

 

The "My Overseas Family" project came about when, during a visit to Venezuela, the Welfare Department discovered that many brethren there did not have the basics with which to survive due to the country's political regime. Families lived on $10 a month and some didn’t have even that.

However, despite our increase in knowledge and advancements in technology and pharmaceutical drugs, the rate of disease increases. The cost of cardiac disease in the US was $320 billion in 2011 and is projected to reach $918 billion by 2030.
