Humanitarian Aid & Relief
Jesus was passionate about serving the poor and helping those in need. At CBN Europe, we commit to his example. Globally, CBN is supporting over 250 projects in over 60 countries. These include humanitarian aid, disaster relief, free medical care and clean water for those who have none.
- People living in poverty endure preventable or treatable health problems. Often because medical services and supplies are not available.
- At least 1.8 billion people are using contaminated drinking water every day*.
- Tragically, approximately 153 million children are orphaned worldwide.
- Wars, floods, hurricanes, typhoons and earthquakes can strike anywhere, anytime.
- Begging and living hand-to-mouth is a way of life for far too many.

CBN currently sponsors medical clinics and outreaches to rural areas. This means providing basic medicines, medical supplies and training in health issues. Medical, dental and optical missions treat thousands of patients each month, free of charge. CBN also sponsors cleft lip and palate surgeries to correct deformities.
Orphans and Vulnerable Children
CBN is reaching out to orphans and vulnerable children through CBN’s Orphan’s Promise. Our goal is to reach out with the love of Jesus. We aim to meet their physical, educational and spiritual needs. This happens through partnerships with local churches – and other established ministries.
Clean Water Ministry
CBN is building family and community wells all over the developing world. We could not do this without the help of our partners. Our staff work with local leaders to identify needs and coordinate each project. In most places, bore wells and protected hand-dug wells are most effective. Such wells can meet the needs of several hundred villagers!
CBN provides disaster relief from national offices around the world. International teams work alongside churches and local community leaders to bring aid where it’s needed most. Clean water, medical care, food, shelter and essentials such as soap, blankets, and hygiene kits are amongst the needs we find.
CBN is providing hundreds of life-changing surgeries. These take place throughout India, Asia, Africa and Latin America. In the United Kingdom, these types of surgeries can cost thousands of pounds. Due to minimal overhead and medical costs in foreign countries, the cost for CBN to provide these surgeries can be much lower.
CBN and its partners are uniquely positioned to respond to the problem of human trafficking. Our mission is to help rescue women and children from predators by easing the burden of poverty.

What We Have Accomplished Together
Responded to 7 Disasters
In 2018 CBN provided urgent disaster relief, responding to 7 disasters in 5 states. The aid provided by CBN partners has not only been in material relief, but also in the simple declaration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each project gives us the opportunity to show the love of God and hope in times of crisis.
Giving a child a new smile, repairing a damaged heart or restoring sight is life-changing. That life change happens not only for the patient but for their families, friends and communities as well. It’s a gift of love from God that changes lives forever!
Protected Women and Children
CBN’s Orphan’s Promise meet the needs of vulnerable and at-risk women and children. Our aim is to take them from unsafe, unstable situations to places of safety. Providing food, shelter, education, medical care, life-skills training and love is a great privilege.
Prevented Life-Threatening Illnesses
Proper medical attention can prevent common illnesses or infection from becoming life-threatening. CBN provides medical treatment for thousands of people around the world. Through Operation Blessing, CBN serves men, women and children using mobile medical brigades. These brigades offer services such as general medicine and dental care.
Supplied Clean Water
CBN provides access to life-sustaining water through clean water wells. Each well project addresses significant hygiene and sanitation concerns. Every outreach ensures a safe water supply. As a result, many people testify about the differences that clean water makes in their lives and in their communities.
Supported Projects that Make a Difference
CBN globally is currently supporting over 250 projects in over 60 countries. We partner with established ministries who are already working on the ground. We then work to support their efforts to help orphaned and vulnerable children. Working in this way stretches every pound and ensures that projects run efficiently.
