After coming to the donations page of Global Geopolitics, you might be a bit surprised to hear donations are not accepted.
However, if you do appreciate the work here you can still make a donation, but to a much higher cause. There are people in need who would be grateful for your generosity.
Global Geopolitics is not motivated by financial gain, but by the gain of raising public awareness and social responsibility (giving back).
Below you will find a growing list of ministries and true causes (with description) Global Geopolitics supports and highly recommends. The listed true causes aren’t the types of ploys you find on television with starving children hooking you in so you donate, only to divert most of your donations to ‘administration costs.’ This is the real deal, real people with real problems that receive too little attention.
TruNews / Flowing Streams
TRUNEWS is the world’s leading news source that reports, analyzes, and comments on global events and trends with a conservative, orthodox Christian worldview. Our vision is to build a global news network that provides a credible source for world news, events, and trends while giving respect and honor to Christians of all major denominations – Evangelical, Orthodox, Anglican, Catholic, and Protestant.
We believe Christians need and deserve their own global news network to keep the worldwide Church informed, and to offer Christians a positive alternative to the anti-Christian bigotry of the mainstream news media.
We believe in one God, existing eternally as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; the Creator of heaven and earth.
We believe the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God, inerrant and complete.
We believe in the Apostles’ Doctrine, the faith which was once delivered unto the Saints. It is the ancient doctrine believed everywhere, always, by everyone in the Early Church. We confess three creeds: Apostles’ Creed, Nicene Creed, and Athanasian Creed.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God; that He came to earth as God in human flesh; and that He is the only way to God the Father. We believe that all people who repent of their sins against God and believe on the name of Jesus Christ as Savior shall be saved for eternity.
We believe that all Believers in Jesus Christ shall receive the indwelling Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit convicts of sin, empowers for service, comforts and consoles, leads in truth, guides through wisdom, reveals things to come, and imparts spiritual gifts as He chooses for the glory of God, the edification of Believers, and as a testimony to the unsaved.
We believe that every Believer in Jesus Christ – all nationalities, races, ethnic groups, and Christian religious denominations – are members of the Body of Jesus Christ, the one, holy, universal, and apostolic Church.
We believe Holy Communion (also known as the Thanksgiving Feast and the Eucharist) and Water Baptism are the two sacraments Jesus Christ divinely instituted in His Church.
We believe that God established marriage as a divine institution, and is a holy covenant between God and one man and one woman.
It all began in 1972, when a half-hour program called “The Chapel Hour” was launched on Atlanta-area television stations. Today, “In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley” can be heard around the world via radio and television broadcasts, podcasts, the handheld In Touch Ministries Messenger, In Touch Apps, and right here on the Web.
Our programs are seen and heard around the world on more than 2,600 radio and television outlets in more than 50 languages. In addition to broadcasting, the ministry continues to produce books, studies, discipleship resources, and the award-winning In Touch magazine to more than 1.5 million households every month
Meet Dr. Stanley
Charles F. Stanley is the founder of In Touch Ministries, and a New York Times best-selling author. He demonstrates a keen awareness of people’s needs and provides Christ-centered biblically based principles for everyday life.
Dr. Stanley’s motivation is best represented by the truth found in Acts 20:24, “Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about God’s mighty kindness and love.” This is because, as he says, “It is the Word of God and the work of God that changes people’s lives.”
At In Touch Ministries, our mission is to lead people worldwide into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and to strengthen the local church. We remain committed to advancing the gospel from person to person and place to place as quickly, clearly, and irresistibly as possible.
Iraqi Christian Relief Council
Iraqi Christian Relief Council (ICRC) serves persecuted Assyrians Christians in Iraq (also known as Chaldeans and Syriacs) and the Middle East. We accomplish this through distribution of emergency humanitarian relief, such as food and shelter, prayer support and advocacy. We travel extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe to advocate on behalf of the indigenous people of Iraq, the Assyrians, and the persecuted church throughout the Middle East.
We help the most vulnerable Middle East Assyrian Christians
- Last year, ICRC directly aided 110,000 persecuted Christians in the Middle East, in countries such as Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan
- 90 percent of the Christians we aid are victims of ISIS, and 100 percent of our beneficiaries have faced extreme religious persecution in their homelands
- ICRC helps some of the most vulnerable victims of ISIS—young children and adults who suffer from debilitating diseases such as cancer and stroke
- When persecuted Christians are at their most vulnerable, ICRC provides assistance in the form of shelter, food and medical care
- During the winter, ICRC provides Christians with housing, winter clothing, heaters and essential food to survive the coldest months of the year
- ICRC helps vulnerable Assyrian Christians refugees who have been resettled in the United States and France with food and rent
Thousands of Assyrian Christian families have been displaced through religious persecution and ethnic cleansing. Many have fled in hopes to migrate to safer locations and someday a number of these families will return back to Iraq to find broken homes and hearts. These victims have been abused, tortured and are tired of running. Hope is hard to find.
This deeply rooted issue is overwhelming, but that’s why we invite you to put aside all faith based differences and unite to assist our Christian brothers and sisters in Iraq and the Middle East, in countries like Syria and Jordan. We will not remain silent.
With your support we’ve already helped thousands–and now we invite you to join us as we support the plight of Assyrian Christians in Iraq through our programs:
We provide urgent, life-saving supplies to Christians in Iraq through our network on the ground.
We are a voice for persecuted Christians in Iraq and those who have arrived in the U.S. who have little to no support system.
We provide education on the region’s history, current crisis, and how you can play a role in the solution.
We facilitate a movement of prayer among Western Christians on behalf of our brothers and sisters in Iraq.
- To raise awareness of the ongoing human rights crisis afflicting millions of religious minorities, especially Christians, in Iraq and neighboring countries, and the needs of the Iraqi Christian community in exile.
- To awaken public opinion and the involvement of U.S. lawmakers to the need for American help in protecting Iraqi Christians, whose situation became dramatically worse in the wake of the U.S. intervention in 2003.
- To provide nutrition, hydration, shelter, and medicine to hundreds of thousands of forcibly displaced Christian Iraqis.
- To aid Iraqi Christians resettled in other countries to obtain education, work permits, and other essentials to allow them to keep their communities alive.
- To partner with leading human rights and religious freedom organizations in service of these purposes.
The Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East (FRRME)
FRRME provides emergency relief to Christians and other persecuted groups in Northern Iraq, as well thousands of Iraqi refugees who have fled to Jordan to escape the violence. In addition to spiritual support we provide food, medicine and shelter. We work with partners on the ground, including churches, other NGOs and the UN, to ensure that aid reaches the most vulnerable.
In Jordan we are looking after 500 Christian Iraqi refugee families. Currently, the Jordanian government does not permit Iraqi refugees to work so we provide them with shelter and food via a weekly voucher scheme. In 2015 we founded a school in Marka, a suburb of Amman, which still educates 175 pupils (N.B. we stopped funding the school at the end of 2016).
Our reconciliation work is focused on bridging the sectarian divide through interfaith dialogue. As well as supporting grassroots organisations in the Middle East, we also set up an annual summer school – The Jerusalem International School for Reconciliation (JISR) – which introduces a new generation to the power and methods of reconciliation. Speakers at JISR have included former Israeli Ambassador to the UK, Daniel Taub, and Sheikh Imad Falouji, former-founding member of Hamas.
