It’s been more than a year since I posted about the remarkable work of the Cradle Fund. For those of you who are new to this blog – and thank you for being here – the Cradle Fund is a non-profit, Christian-run Middle East initiative led by the Institute for Global Engagement (IGE), which “helps rescue, restore and return Middle Eastern Christians and other religious and ethnic groups to a home where they can live and practice their faith free from fear.”
The achievements of the Cradle Fund in the mere three-and-a-half years of its existence are truly amazing. Working with thirteen Cradle Fund partners, it has already helped more than 125,000 refugees. And all of this has been made possible by people’s generous donations.
The Cradle Fund is the only non-profit initiative that this blog supports. I have been friends with Chris Seiple, its founder and president emeritus of IGE, for many years. Whether you have supported the Cradle Fund in the past or have yet to help, I urge you to think about supporting this remarkable initiative.
There is a wealth of information and photos about the Cradle Fund on the IGE website. Here are two recent short articles on the IGE site. This link. And this one.
Here is the first article I wrote about it. It explains its fortuitous beginnings and how we got involved. And it will give you other basic info and photos and link you to subsequent articles on this blog about the Cradle Fund’s evolving history, which is pretty amazing.
Thank you for being approachable about this. Soon we will again remember the resurrection of Christ, who rescued us from our sins. And as the rescued know, there’s nothing like a rescue.
