Volunteering with OB

When disasters strike, OB volunteers are often
the first on the ground and the last to leave.
They bring hope and help to those facing crisis and disaster.

A mission you
can believe in.
A charity you
can trust.

Operation Blessing is committed to help transform people’s lives – from one who is desperate to one who is full of hope.
But we cannot do so on our own. We need YOUR HELP. Get involved NOW. Together, let us make a difference.
We usually think that if we volunteer, it will take a lot of our time, it will consume our resources, but I can testify that if you give from your heart, whatever you can give – may it be your talent, time, resources – you will receive more in return.
Dr. Darwin Gaba

It reminds me that as a Christian, you don’t just speak God’s word, but you live it. With OB, they practice what they preach. Everyone can serve, but not everyone can serve with compassion, and that’s what Operation Blessing does – serving with compassion,
