The COVID-19 pandemic has taken its toll on many people, completely reshaping the way we lived for nearly two years. One of the countries we serve was hit especially hard. In India, our beloved Dr. Chris lost his life to a severe bout of the respiratory disease, which left his wife and daughter with a house to pay off, a local ministry to run in his absence, and more.
The Center for Global Ministries has been heartbroken by the loss of Dr. Chris and is moved to support his family going forward. We are collecting donations to help pay off their family home so they can continue to care for their community. The debt remaining on the home is $15,000. Relieving them of this burden allows them to continue feeding, clothing, and providing medical care to the poor.
Who Was Dr. Chris?
Dr. Chris was born in India and always had a heart for helping those less fortunate. He studied medicine and provided free or low-cost medical care to anyone who needed it.
Dr. Chris was more than just a doctor, though; he was a husband, a father, and a community leader. He dedicated his life to helping others, both through his medical practice and through his local ministry. He was always willing to lend a helping hand, whether it was paying for someone’s groceries or providing medical care to those who couldn’t afford it. He was truly one of a kind and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Why We’re Helping
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Dr. Chris was on the frontlines, treating patients day and night. He contracted the virus himself and despite getting hospitalized and receiving treatment, he ultimately succumbed to the disease. His death has left a huge void in his community and at The Center for Global Ministries.
Dr. Chris’s death has left his family with a lot of burdens, both financial and emotional. We believe that it is our duty to help lighten that load as much as possible so that they can continue to focus on healing and moving forward. By paying off their home, we hope to give them one less worry and allow them to continue their vital work in the community.

Is there an old car or other underused vehicle sitting in the driveway or garage? Is it time to sell it and see the funds go for such a noble cause?
