CCEPI cares for people. For decades, CCEPI staff and volunteers have shown the commitment and courage to face terrible situations to help neighbors and strangers, individuals and whole communities. As the rest of the world looks away, CCEPI serves: people who have faced unimaginable violence, families driven from their homes,children without families, bereaved parents, kidnapping victims, people without food, water or shelter. People with nowhere to turn. 

 

At CCEPI, we go where needed, in solidarity, with compassion. From this bleakness, we’ve seen countless stories of human resilience. Once we rescued a mother whose children and husband were killed in front of her. We helped her recover, find land and build a small home, start a new life, even launch a successful business. Now, after years of recovery, she even imagines remarrying.

 

Over the decades, we have refined an intake program that addresses shock, meets physical needs, and gently opens the door to psychological healing and life rebuilding, treating as person as a unique individual. We reconnect victims with their communities and families and find homes for orphans. When communities are hungry, CCEPI brings food--and agricultural inputs so they can grow their own healthy food. CCEPI offers schooling and training and livelihood opportunities, and plants seeds of the peace we collectively envision.

 

There is hope. History shows this kind of mass chaos can abate, as a result of collective action and determination of the local people. (The country of Indonesia offers a recent example.) Northern Nigeria too can become a peaceful, thriving society, with support and solidarity from the rest of the world. The people need immediate help, and support to co-create a better future. At CCEPI, we are leading that change, in partnership with our brothers and sisters from around the world.
