From their local ministry to helping girls trapped in trafficking to their international work, Crisis Aid Intl. has been extraordinary. They are passionate, faith focused and accountable. Pat and his team are great to work with and keep the local church in the know. And, besides all of this, their “OH” coffee isn’t bad either!

We go back a long way. In its early swashbuckling days, flying food and medicine into parts of Africa where even local militaries feared to tread, Crisis Aid asked for my advice. ¶ I'm a donor-communications specialist. I've written 6 books and speak internationally. ¶ As I learned more about Crisis Aid, though, I transitioned from consultant to donor ... and that's what I've been for years. ¶ I've never been closer to heaven (retired Catholic here) than Crisis Aid. I should probably add a disclaimer: I'm a successful ad copywriter ... so I could spin this. Instead, this is my honest truth: Crisis Aid shocks me. News feeds us all a daily diet of horror and grief, hoping to ring the bell in a part of your brain called the amygdala. That guarantees your attention, which is then sold off to advertisers. ¶ If actual angels now walk the earth (and don't look at me: I'm a devout socialist/securalist), those angels wear Crisis Aid name badges.

I had the opportunity to go on a trip to Ethiopia with Pat and his team in 2019. To the say that the trip was a life changing experience would be an understatement. The amount of work that they have accomplished and the additional projects and programs that ramping up is amazing. The people they serve are livIng in the some of the most desperate situations in the world. Without the love and care Crisis Aid provides them I don’t know where they would be. I love their mission of saving lives, saving souls and changing futures. I was lucky enough to see them live that mission out!

Of the many charities I have worked with over the years this by far is my favorite. Not only when I reached out about the Christmas program did they give us a child to sponsor they also invited us to participate in the event as well. After meeting all the amazing people that work /volunteer there and welcome us as if we have been volunteering for years. During the times volunteering it is such an amazing experience to see people just change and show the relief and know the struggles they face that they may not be able to show or want to show. on top of the parts I have seen they also help in so many ways with human trafficking and emergency situations.

I am not sure, but I think that I have been the longest participating member of this charity org. I have gone through some rough times, myself, but I have tried to overlook the immediate problem and see this through. I sponsored a child and she graduated and now I am sponsoring a second who will soon graduate too. I know that this org keeps vulnerable girls out of trouble. I volunteered to help in a food pantry in Saint Louis, MO for a while, and because of that, I have personally met Pat and Sue and also their key staff person.. Jennifer. These are people are committed, and have determination and integrity. This is the best use of my charitable donations, no doubt - no factual report needed.

I cannot say enough good things about Crisis Aid and the impact Monarch Jewelry, who is partnered with them, contributes to the ongoing fight to stop sex trafficking. I donate to Crisis Aid monthly and I volunteer through Monarch Jewelry, making unique hand made jewelry, in which 100% profit helps to fund the refuge house that is a temporary home to victims who are rescued from sex-trafficking. This Christian nonprofit is the answer to many prayers from people asking for help in various areas of their lives. I only wish I knew about this nonprofit organization earlier, so I could have donated/volunteered longer. God is surely working through them to make our world better.

I am newly retired and found I had a little too much time on my hands. I saw Monarch Jewelry on a FaceBook page and started following along. I have always prayed for God to fill me with the Holy Spirit and to help me find a place where I can make a difference. God answered my prayers and I followed up on my FB page by joining the volunteers at Faith Church. After learning about Crisis Aid I knew I needed to be part of this friendly Godly group. As one woman in the group explained that there is a need for each and every one of us to share our abilities, she used quite a large rock as an example explaining that even that rock has a job within the organization....as she placed it on the floor to hold the door open in in order to bring in all the supplies.....that made me smile.

Crisis Aid is probably the most amazing nonprofit I have gotten to know, and I believe the Lord is using the organization to accomplish his will in Ethiopia. I visited Ethiopia with a group of donors and Crisis Aid's founder, Pat Bradley, in June 2018 and was blown away by the breadth and effectiveness of ministries they operate in the country. More importantly, we heard countless firsthand stories about the impact Crisis Aid is making, saving lives, giving hope, and spreading the gospel. There is almost no overhead to the organization at all - and a dollar goes extremely far in the country. I am excited to continue donating, and helping Crisis Aid raise money through my network so this work can continue for years to come.

I had the honor to spend a week with the founder of Crisis Aid International in East Africa to experience first hand all the work they have been doing over there for 15 years now. I was blown away at the breadth of their organization and the huge positive impact that they are making in the lives of the local people. I can personally validate that every dollar given to Crisis Aid towards one of their projects is either literally saving a life or changing someone's life forever. This organization is going into areas of East Africa where there are no other organizations providing aid. The best way I can describe it is that they're going into the heart of darkness and shining a light of hope so that these wonderful people can start dreaming instead of just surviving. It's beautiful. It's a privilege for me to be supporting this organization. - Lance Karnan

I was a member of a medical mission team in remote Ethiopia that partnered with International Crisis Aid (ICA) for a week. I saw and experienced first hand the incredible humanitarian work this organization consistently does with overwhelming, loving care. Witnessing the personal" hands on" approach that Pat Bradley (CEO and founder) tirelessly demonstrated on a daily basis was heart warming. Pat worked relentlessly,side by side with us, as we treated many hundreds of patients each day. He identified countless malnourished children that he immediately enrolled in the family feeding program that his organization administers. We met several girls that were rescued by ICA from the sex slave trade. These girls had graduated from high school and were now being vocationally trained. ICA is a far superior non-profit, humanitarian organization .Fiscally responsible and sound. ONE OF THE BEST!!

I have been on 3 trips to Ease Africa with International Crisis Aid and was amazed at the work we were able to accomplish. Pat Bradley shared his testimony and vision with the group each year and his heart for the people of not only Africa but all over the world touched my heart. I have supported this organization since then because I want to be a part of such a great work meeting people's needs and setting them free from bondage through Jesus Christ, whether poverty or slavery. This organization strives to be fiscally responsible, keeping administrative costs at a bare minimum while caring for thousands of people in desperate conditions.

I have had 3 opportunities to partner with ICA providing medical care in East Africa. The poverty level is astounding but the ability to enter starving children and their families into a feeding program was a tangible solution to a very real problem. Those too malnourished to eat were taken to the new pediatric hospital that ICA built in partnership with JMM.
I also attended the graduation of women rescued from a life of prostitution. The hope and pride shown by these beautiful women as they spoke of the skills they had acquired and the jobs they were taking warmed my heart! ICA is building a home that will enable them to offer help to even more girls.
Wonderful organization!

My wife and I have been affiliated with Crisis Aid since inception. I have traveled to two locations where aid is being provided. The use of donations to this organization have direct oversight. I know of no other organization where our donations will have a bigger impact on lives that are in crisis. That is why we continue to stay affiliated with this organization.

We personally know two board members and know that their life style emulates their oversight of this organization. Without reservation we recommend Crisis Aid International.

Attached is a picture I can't forget. These are the shoes of orphans that survived the 2010 Haiti earth quake. Their shoes are drying in the sun after the filth of the earthquake was washed from them. Many other orphans did not survive the earthquake. I have witnessed Crisis Aid providing help to the helpless in areas that larger organizations cannot reach.

My first interaction with Crisis Aid was in 2009. I had a friend who had spent the summer of 2008 photographing children for the Crisis Aid sponsorship program. The photos told a story of how Crisis Aid traveled all over East Africa to help families. After viewing the photos I had to learn more about what they were doing. In 2009, my husband and I made our first trip to East Africa with Crisis Aid. It was life changing. I had been to 3rd world countries before, never had I observed the level of desperation that was present in East Africa. The Crisis Aid team never thought or ALLOWED us to believe it was just too much. They see starvation they will do what it takes to bring substance. They stare at death and say not one more child to simple curable disease. They see young hopeless women trapped in sex trafficking and make Safe Homes and Trade schools so they find hope. I am also humbled to have served along side many of the staff of Crisis Aid. This is an NGO that works. No one including the CEO sits in a high rise office collecting millions. If I donate $1.00, I know at least .85 goes to actual programs. I fully believe in what Crisis Aid is doing. I have seen with my own eyes how they make a difference.

IN 2014 My husband and I made our 6th trip to East Africa with International Crisis Aid. We have been able to see the difference that their programs make. The children we sponsor through ICA are growing physically, spiritually and are doing great in their classes in school. The girls in the ICA sponsored Orphanage are happy, healthy and are growing up to be strong women who will serve their country well. I can't say enough about the girls, some very young, that have been rescued out of the sex trade. Both in other countries and in our own USA. Because of ICA, these girls have a safe home, where they are not beaten, abused, and used for the sick purposes of others. Without ICA, these young girls would still be out on the street, trying just to stay alive. I appreciate that ICA puts all their information on their website. If you want to know how much ICA spends for administration expenses, go to their website, You will be amazed that they do so much and yet the cost is so little. You won't find million dollar salaries at this NGO! International Crisis Aid is the real deal. They love, they go, they give. If you have an opportunity to help International Crisis Aid, please do so. The dollars you donate today will make a difference in the lives of so many tomorrow.

I have seen the inner-workings of this great organization having spent time in the headquarters office in St. Louis with the staff. The motto of "saving lives, saving souls, and changing futures" is truly lived out amongst the staff, and the organization is well run and dollars go straight to the people that need it most! Also having traveled to East Africa to see some of the ministry in action myself, going into some of the hardest to reach places, I found and spoke with people whose lives truly have been changed, both physically and spiritually!

Crisis Aid International is a charity I started supporting as a monthly donor because I believe in their mission to save the lives of the starving children and families, as well as rescue women from a horrific life of the sex trade industry. Over the years I have been able to make a small contribution to their mission and have been able to see the great impact every small and large donation has on the lives of these impoverished people. I also believe Crisis Aid has a true heart to help these people and has been making significant headway on implementing plans to educate the people they are helping so eventually they will be able to help themselves. It is comforting to know the donations I've made are in fact helping people, saving lives and the people who work at Crisis Aid care about each person.
Every person matters, every donation helps and together we can all make a difference!

I had the opportunity to go to a Crisis Aid luncheon last year. We were watching a film on their outreach in Ethiopia, when I learned what the "red tape test" is. Crisis Aid has a red tape, they put around the bicep of the child. They can tell how emaciated the child is, by the circumference of the bicep. In some cases the children were in immediate danger of starving to death, because their little bodies had lost so much body mass. It was terrible to behold, these little kids starving to death. Needless to say, Pat Bradley, founder of Crisis Aid, immediately admitted to the hospital those kids in danger of starvation. This is a charity worth supporting!

I have worked with Pat and Sue Bradley at Crisis Aid International in a variety of capacities over the past 8 plus years...From helping organize and staff 5K fundraisers to designing brochures for a benefit concert to volunteering at their inner-city outreach in their after-school and feeding programs. I volunteer with CAI because I believe in their mission and their leadership. They do so much to help people around the world and in our community; it's just a great feeling to know that in some small way, I get to be part of all they do. When one gets the opportunity to meet a leader of such integrity and genuine humility, like Pat, you can't resist the urge to get behind him and support him in everything he does...Because at the end of the day, you know it's going to be an impactful, positive, life-changing project for somebody in dire need. It's going to be done right and it's going to be done well.

I have been involved with Crisis Aid international in one way or another for the last 15 years. The work that they do is simply amazing. They literally are the hands and feet of Jesus by reaching people that no one else will reach and giving people hope that before the interaction with Crisis Aid was living a life of hopelessness. I have watched first hand the compassion and love that they have for people all around the globe that are in desperate situations. Every staff member and volunteer that I have ever come across has a level of integrity and character that is second to none. Every event I have been apart of has been done with a level off excellence in a way that give glory and honor to God.

I was introduced to Pat Bradley 20 years ago, and was impressed by his unfaltering integrity, passion for helping others, and heart as big as a double-decker bus. I helped support the Crisis Aid 5K Run and volunteered as a course marshal, where I met Pat's wife Sue. Needless to say, she is as remarkable as he is, and both of them demonstrate a love for humanity that is visible each and every time I am in their presence..

I was fortunate to attend a mission trip with Pat and Sue, along with other members of Crisis Aid to East Africa, where I saw the real fruits of their charitable labor and resources. Not only did they pour their heart and soul into helping save lives, they demonstrated a keen desire to insure every dollar donated to Crisis Aid was utilized as efficiently and effectively as possible to achieve their mission.

It was a life changing event for me, and my appreciation for the real positive impact on lives that Crisis Aid delivers, continues to grow.

I have been familiar with the work of the founders of Crisis Aid, Pat & Sue Bradley, for many years. I have always been immensely impressed with their devotion and sacrifice to those in need, and how they have transferred their personal commitments to an organization that reflects those same values.

In spring of 2017, I was blessed to accompany a small group to witness their efforts and results in East Africa. What an impact they have brought to so many whose lives they transformed and saved! Sex trafficking rescue, job training, basic education, orphanages, well water programs, pediatric hospital, feeding & nutrition programs....the list seems endless.

And their work includes some domestic programs as well as they have found others who have no other place to turn even in our country.

I have every confidence that every dollar I donate is directly helping those in need. And that the impact of that help is more than just keeping them alive, but allowing them to blossom and fulfill their purposes of their lives.

My husband and i have been volunteers and donors of Crisis Aid's for about 8 years. What drew us to this organization was not only the amazing work that is being done, but more the integrity and sincerity that the founders walked in. There are a lot of great orgs out there doing a lot of great things, but Crisis Aid and Pat and Sue Bradley stuck out the most with their level of excellence in all they did. They truly seek to serve people to the greatest ability and show the love of Jesus in a way that is inspiring and remarkable. With leaders like that we knew our money would best be served there. And the fruit shows for itself in the amount of lives touched and saved. We are thankful to be a part of it with them and serve others through volunteering and sowing financially. We are forever grateful to have found such an amazing organization.

The first time I stepped inside the front door of Crisis Aid's office as a volunteer, I could immediately feel and see the heart and soul of this amazing organization. The pictures on the wall literally brought me to tears and tugged at my heart. Pat and Sue Bradley, along with their dedicated staff, are truly walking out the work of Our Savior Jesus Christ.

I first learned about sex trafficking through Crisis Aid International in 2009. They spoke to our youth group and actually built a replica of a street in Africa so we could get a real "feel" for life in the red light district. It broke my heart. Since then I have supported Crisis Aid monthly. I continue to watch God move and open doors for them to rescue and educate women who had no future before God sent them. Women who were rescued are now teaching other women about Jesus and helping them find a way to freedom!
I am amazed at how much Crisis Aid does with the money they receive. They are very open about their finances and God just seems to multiply the funds like He did the loaves and fishes. People are fed and receive medical help. Girls are rescued and given a new future.
I've spent time talking with Pat and Sue Bradley. They love Jesus and are giving their lives to the hurting. I am honored to be able to support them and the work they are doing both here and in Africa.

I had the incredible experience of going to Africa with International Crisis Aid...the trip has changed my life forever. I was impressed by the extent of their work! They were helping hundreds of girls in the red light district, they operate an orphanage, they do food distributions in remote areas, they sponsor individual children, they operate medical clinics and build wells. It was apparent that this organization has had a widespread impact on the country and an intimate impact on the lives of individuals. There is not a day that goes by where I do not think of the the trip. Its a true example of how individuals with passion and dedication can truly make an impact on the world.

Over the years I have interacted with different non-profits but my best and most rewarding experience has always been with Crisis Aid. I have seen Crisis Aid in action first hand as a volunteer and continue to be impressed with the compassion and regard for the individual with which the staff operates and executes their programs. As a donor I want my money to count towards what matters, saving and improving lives. Having interacted with the president and the staff I have the utmost confidence that every penny donated to the organization is carefully spent. And, more importantly, the organization expects (and can point to) specific results from their programs. A great organization to support!!!!
