SAVE THE DATE! November 19-26, 2022: EPES 40th Anniversary Celebration in Chile! Meet the EPES staff and health promoters, reflect on our 40 years, learn about Chile, and celebrate! Click here for itinerary details and info on signing up!
Even if you aren’t able to join us in Chile , we welcome you to celebrate 40 years of making a difference in people’s lives and take time to look together towards the future. Through dictatorships, earthquakes, devastating fires and pandemics, EPES has remained steadfast in our commitment to stand with the poor and marginalized to build healthier communities. And you have been with us. We wouldn’t be where we are today without your ongoing support and investment in our work.
Today, we are responding to the immigration crisis through emergency support for migrant families and individuals in northern Chile. We are channeling humanitarian aid for travel, Covid tests and health care for women, along with providing information on the health rights for immigrant populations. Our community gardening projects begun during the pandemic are thriving and providing a space for health promoters to grow fresh, healthy food and a space to gather to organize for change. Our International School continues to provide engaging and unique training for community and church leaders throughout the world. And, we have so much more to do!
Will you help us move into the future? A generous EPES supporter has offered to match all donations made to our 40th anniversary fund up to US$25,000. Our goal is to raise US$50,000. Your continued support will be so appreciated!
