Abroad

Agapé UK provides a range of opportunities for people to serve abroad and to donate and support humanitarian work.

Refugee Aid in Greece and Bosnia & Herzegovina

GAiN UK is a relief and development organisation, dedicated to mobilising people to respond in practical ways to poverty and crisis. Aid for refugees comes from donations from our partners. These are then distributed in countries where we have ongoing partnerships. For Greece, we send wash kits and nappies to help women cope with the challenges of living in a refugee camp. For Bosnia & Herzegovina, clothes and supplies are essential to the migrants on their journey to Europe.

In February, we, together with RefugEase, have sent a lorry with 1,500 boxes of clothes to Bosnia & Herzegovina. In May, 30 wash kits, 15,600 nappies and 3,500 pairs of glasses were sent to Greece. In July, we are sending another lorry of aid to Bosnia.

Water for Life

As part of our development project, we’re excited to expand our work to
include Water for Life.

GAiN worldwide has been working across Africa (currently Benin, Togo and Tanzania) to partner with local churches and communities to provide safe drinking water to rural villages. Aside from installing a deep capped well, training in hygiene and sanitation, gender sensitivity, family health and water committee is provided.

Collections around the UK

Our goal is to involve people in a hands-on response to poverty and crisis. Part of this is asking people to be collection points in their areas and communities. From as far as John O’Groats to Belfast to the south of England, our 20-plus collection points have been gathering donated clothes and supplies, and we in turn have an overflowing supply of aid, ready to be sent to refugees in Greece and Bosnia. We dream of having 100 collection points dotted around the UK, to help reveal hope and restore life to those in need. Will you join us and be a collection point in your area?

Global opportunities for students

Agapé UK is an International charity, and we’re active in over 190 countries. Just as we’re building communities of students who are discovering Jesus together here in the UK, there are Agapé student communities all across the world!

At various points throughout the year we run Global Projects: 1–3-week opportunities for students to join a team volunteering with an Agapé student movement in another country.

Or, if you’re planning to spend a semester, or longer, studying in another country as part of your university degree, you can connect with an Agapé student movement in your overseas university by applying for the Agapé UK Study Abroad programme.
