This issue marks the launch of the new CHARISMA CARES program, created to give Charisma readers more opportunities to engage with the amazing ministries we feature in each issue. And honestly, we can’t think of a more worthwhile ministry to start with than Calcutta Mercy Ministries, now celebrating 60 years of showing God’s love to India’s poorest by providing hands-on care.

For more than 38 years, Charisma readers have consistently changed lives around the world with their generous giving. Here’s how you can help now in one of India’s poorest areas:

$35 impacts the life of a child by providing meals, education and medical care.

$60 a month supports children at the ministry’s blind school.

$250 a month employs three rescued sex workers or supports a student at the School of Nursing.

$500 pays for a child with a cleft lip or palate to receive surgery, orthodontics and speech therapy.

$2,200 a month funds operations at one of the hospital’s Mercy Clinics.

$3,000 a month funds the operation of a red-light clinic that provides therapy, medication and ministry to women sex workers and their children.

$10,000 a week provides 150,000 meals through the ministry’s successful food program.

$28,000 pays for an Adopt-a-Village project. Calcutta Mercy Ministries plans to build at least 40 additional clinics throughout rural communities in India while providing education and the sharing of the gospel to those who have yet to hear about the love of Christ.

Thanks to Charisma Cares, Charisma’s nonprofit partner, 100 percent of all donations will go directly to Calcutta Mercy Ministries.

Visit to donate online, or mail your payment to Christian Life Missions, 600 Rinehart Road, Lake Mary, FL 32746.
