Programs: Humanitarian Aid Organization

Matthew 25: Ministries is a humanitarian aid organization that helps more than 11 million people around the world each year and sends more than 10 million pounds of aid such as food, personal care items, medical supplies, and other products to the poorest of the poor. We work with corporations, organizations and individuals to provide much needed aid to the poor and fight against world poverty .


Matthew 25: Ministries provides humanitarian relief to the poor by collecting product donations from corporations, organizations, and individuals. With the help of our volunteers, M25M evaluates, categorizes, sorts, and processes these donated items before shipping them to those in need. These steps ensure that the products meet social, legal, and cultural requirements of the area. The donated items range from personal to community supplies, food, clothing, and medical aid. These donations help those in impoverished areas of Greater Cincinnati, throughout the U.S. , and around the world.

Our Humanitarian Aid Partners

In order to reach as many people as possible, Matthew 25: Ministries partners with non-profit organizations in the recipient location. This helps keep costs down. Through these relationships we ensure that donated goods are shipped to places with true need and distributed by people who are familiar with the area. Matthew 25: Ministries works with more than 20 organizations in the Greater Cincinnati area, groups throughout the United States including Appalachia and the American Indians, and in over 35 countries worldwide.

Disaster Response

In disaster situations, time is a precious commodity and implementing an effective disaster response is critical. Matthew 25: Ministries is constantly monitoring its readiness to meet the needs of a sudden disaster. This includes maintaining the facilities and resources needed, as well as being ready to engage disaster relief volunteers from the local community who want to help provide relief to the victims.

Disaster Support Process

In order to provide the most effective disaster support possible, supplies must be sorted prior to being shipped. When aid products reach the devastated area, they need to be ready for immediate distribution. Matthew 25: Ministries ships only pre-sorted, pre-processed items that are culturally and seasonally appropriate to the disaster area. This ensures that the products will bring relief to the victims instead of creating additional work for the responders in the area. According to UNDRO (United Nations Disaster Relief Organization), "The impulsive generosity of governments, organizations, and individuals alike can cause as much chaos and confusion as the disaster itself."

Natural Disaster Relief

Matthew 25: Ministries has responded to a wide variety of natural disasters including cyclones, tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, windstorms, and droughts. Most recently, Matthew 25: Ministries has been shipping disaster relief products to Japan in response to the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear crisis.

The mission of Matthew 25: Ministries is to fulfill Matthew 25:34-40 by providing nutritional food to the hungry, clean water to the thirsty, clothing to the naked, shelter to the homeless, medical care to the ill, and humanitarian supplies to prisoners.

"As you did it to the least of these my brothers and sisters, you did it to me" (Matthew 25:40).
