This site focuses primarily on resources and stories around the intersection between faith and disability in North America. There is currently a unique and urgent need in South Sudan, however, to meet the needs of 15,000 people who have shown up at the five centres of CH Global, a ministry of Christian Horizons. These people have been displaced by war and conflict and have turned to CH Global, a Christian organization providing support to people with disabilities and exceptional needs in South Sudan, for emergency food and shelter. This is part of a much larger need, of course, within the political and ethnic conflict that has displaced half a million people and killed ten thousand. CH Global is one way to give to meet the needs of thousands of people that have recognized a faith-based ministry as not only an organization to meet the exceptional needs of people with disabilities, but exceptional needs of people in exceptional circumstances.
