After Pastor Ernesto Mossl and his wife Theresa Mossl volunteered with UBECI in November 2016, they were moved by the plight of the market children and the work UBECI was doing to try to alleviate the problems. Upon returning to the United States they and their congregation at the Christ Lutheran Church of Newburgh worked to partner with UBECI. They have provided invaluable donations to our yearly campaigns and our main project of “Play, Do, Learn.”

UBECI is proud to announce its membership in Global Giving, an organization that dedicates itself to giving non-profit organizations the resources and platforms necessary to engage in the most efficient and effective fundraising techniques. Global Giving is an excellent resource through which UBECI is able to increase awareness  and reach people who wish to support our cause.

In 2016, UBECI will be participating in two separate Bonus Days through Global Giving. One will take place in June and the other will take place in December. Bonus Days are days on which Global Giving will match a percentage of all donations made through the Global Giving website. Bonus Days are great opportunities for UBECI to raise the extra funds it needs to provide educational, recreational, and campaign support in order to provide the children in the markets with the best activities and attention. Keep an eye out on our website, Global Giving page, or our Facebook page to learn more about how and when you can participate in Bonus Days.

All funds raised on GoFundMe are directly used to sustain the current yearly campaign. In total, there are 4 annual campaigns that UBECI undertake: Dental Assistance, General Health, School Kit, and Christmas Gifts. The greater the funds raised, the more children that are assisted/reached.

Every campaign receives it’s own unique page on the GoFundMe site and lists in detail the plan for executing the campaign, what it will accomplish, and how the money will be spent. To donate to the current campaign page, click here.
