Hear The Cry exists to bring compassion and justice into areas of brokenness around the world through community development in areas of education, gender equality and micro/macro finance projects. We do this through child and project sponsorships as well as on the ground relational trips for you to meet and serve the communities we work in.
The word compassion literally means “to suffer with.” In compassion, we find this idea of being with the hurting. Justice is language for shalom, peace, things made right, equality, healing, fullness, the world operating as it should.


A number of Churches and Organizations in the Portland area take 10% of every dollar given and put it towards our mission and vision at Hear the Cry. We partner with incredible local organizations in India, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Somalia, Iraq, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, Haiti and Nicaragua. Hear the Cry sends short-term and long-term teams to these areas in need. You can get involved by praying, supporting financially, and by applying to go on these trips.
