Children’s Emergency Relief International (CERI) is a Christian health and human services organization that brings hope to children living in extreme poverty around the globe. Our one-of-a-kind approach features professionally delivered social services, humanitarian aid campaigns, one-on-one child sponsorships and missions that address the material and spiritual needs of humanity. Our goal for each child is a lifestyle of resiliency, determination, hope for the future and faith in God.
