Reaching people and touching lives with the love of God is Global Compassion’s vision that propels the work of serving the most remote, marginalised and neglected communities in society.

Global Compassion is the service arm of Christian Mission fellowship International.A major component of church activity, since inception, has been assistance to marginalised communities and that has continued to build steadily over the years, leading to the endorsement of Global Compassion as its service arm.Global Compassion takes a holistic approach towards the development of the people with the church arm empowering people by taking care of their spiritualwell being through teaching and counselling support, and Global Compassion providing the social services to support families and individuals in need by responding to livelihood needs including improved food security and health. Over the years the organisation has established a working relationship and network with the Fiji Government through its Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation and DISMAC.For other countries where CMFI is established, Global Compassion is being set up to monitor and coordinate the work of reaching the marginalised communities through the provision of humanitarian services.

Global Compassion, the charitable arm of Christian Mission Fellowship International was able to mobilise its church districts nationwide less than 24 hours after conducting its initial survey to provide immediate assistance and relief to those impacted by Tropical Cyclone Winston.

Three days after TC Winston struck the Fiji group, food rations were distributed to 246 families in the Tailevu North area reaching Veicorocoro settlement, Nadrano village, Luvunavuaka, Natalaira, Naqelekuro, Lawaki and neighbouring settlements along the Dawasamu stretch up to Natalaira. Most of the families reached have been left homeless following the cyclone and are living in make shift facilities, waiting for assistance.

Global Compassion aims to provide immediate assistance to bridge the need while Government is conducting assessments and coordinating national relief efforts. The organisation is working in consultation with the DISMAC team at the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO)

Global Compassion mobilised the church network in Labasa to serve people from Bua, Savusavu and Taveuni and also in the western division in Lautoka to respond to the immediate needs in the west. There will also be a team taking food rations across by fibre boat to Moturiki in Lomaiviti and Qoma village in Tailevu.

Founder and President of CMFI, Reverend Suliasi Kurulo mobilised Global Compassion disaster relief operations, immediately following the onslaught of Tropical Cyclone Winston at the weekend.

Global Compassion welcomes donations from those willing to contribute to the purchase of food items as packing continues at the World Harvest Centre in Kinoya.
