Helping Without Hurting
Video Seminar Discussion
videos produced by The Chalmers Center
★ This four-part video series is a powerful tool that tackles the difference between “relief” and “restoration,” and equips you, your community group, and the church to engage in long-lasting relationships, not short-term fixes.
★ This will help us to think about poverty alleviation in a different way and equip each other to empower people in ways that lead to lasting change.
