WHAT HAPPENS TO PEOPLE?
What happens to people 12 to 18 months after relief organizations leave in the wake of a major life altering disaster such as an earthquake, hurricane, tornado, tsunami or even an epidemic? The unfortunate truth is they are still left with the insurmountable task of piecing together their horrifically broken life!
These devastating events abruptly thrust most people into a life of poverty and despair. Their homes, community, livelihood and support means from loved-ones are suddenly removed and the life they once knew has been forever altered. The over-whelming task of restoring their life causes them to become disillusioned, distressed and for many they simply lose their will to survive! These unique groups of people experience a mental, physical and spiritual brokenness that becomes virtually impossible for them to restore on their own.
In most cases, relief efforts only provide for immediate life sustaining needs. However, they do not provide for the long-term restoration of the human “Mind, Body and Soul”. Nehemiah’s Restoration believes that until a person is restored mentally, physically and spiritually, they are unable to effectively lead a productive life where they can once again be able to provide for themselves. Without intervention and complete restoration, they are forced into a “Cycle of Poverty” that most often remains hopelessly unchanged.
Nehemiah’s Restoration is NOT a “Short-Term Relief” organization, but rather it is a “Long-Term Recovery” organization that believes in the need to restore the human “Mind, Body and Soul” of the mentally, physically and spiritually broken people of our world. We do this by providing psychological, physical, medical and spiritual aid to the victims of these major life-altering disasters.
Without the help of Nehemiah’s Restoration and people like you, the plight of these people will remain hopelessly unchanged and a new cycle of poverty will remain forever unbroken.
Together we can STOP the Cycle of Poverty!
