Humanitarian Aid

Helping The Poorest Of The Poor and Disaster Victims

Matthew 25: Ministries provides humanitarian aid to the poorest of the poor and disaster victims by collecting product donations from corporations, organizations, and individuals. With the help of our volunteers, Matthew 25 evaluates, sorts, and processes these donated items before shipping them to people in need. These steps ensure that the products meet social, legal, and cultural requirements of the area.

In order to reach as many people as possible, Matthew 25: Ministries partners with non-profit organizations in the recipient locations. Through these relationships we ensure that donated goods are shipped to places with true need and distributed by people who are familiar with the area. Matthew 25: Ministries works with more than 40 organizations in the Greater Cincinnati area, groups throughout the United States, and partners in approximately 70 countries worldwide.
