Same Boat Ministries, Inc. is an incorporated 501(c)3 non-profit organization doing business in Venezuela in cooperation with “Asociación Civil Genesis”, an incorporated non-profit organization registered in Venezuela.
Our ministry has worked for 9 years in Venezuela with churches and Christian organizations, in evangelism, church planting and sustainable food and water production. Recently the Lord has opened our eyes to the large numbers of children that are undernourished. Many live on the streets with no parents and some are among the poorest families with no means of support.
This prompted us to begin collecting food and shipping it to Venezuela. We found this process to be labor intensive, slow and expensive. We have been purchasing bulk food (pasta, rice, beans, powdered milk, sugar, oatmeal, corn and wheat flour, cooking oil, as well as carrots, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, squash, garlic and cabbage) in Venezuela on the black market for years. Having done the math, we have concluded that it is far cheaper, much quicker and less problematic to purchase the food is Venezuela.
We have selected 3 pastors we know and trust. These are feeding approximately 500 children one meal every day. Same Boat Ministries is helping to supplement their food needs. The cost is approximately 30 cents per child per day.
