ChildCARE Plus Field Representative


Purpose

To work alongside local churches in serving vulnerable children and their families to help overcome the chronic cycle of poverty through education and other strategic interventions. 

ERDO (Emergency Relief & Development Overseas) responds to crisis situations around the world by providing timely relief through emergency food aid, economic aid, disaster restoration, and training that builds the capacity of communities to guard against future crises and assist with community development.
