Working closely with U.S. hospitals, corporations, businesses and individuals, Matthew 25: Ministries has shipped an estimated 115 million pounds of donated humanitarian supplies to the needy in the United States of America and impoverished countries in Central and South America, the Caribbean, the Balkans and Africa.
