Iris Global is a Christian organization that exists to bring the kingdom of God to earth in all of its aspects, but most especially through our particular calling to end human suffering by serving the very poor: the destitute, the lost, the broken, and the forgotten. In our home nation of Mozambique we do this through feeding the hungry, housing and caring for the needs of the orphan and the widow, providing educational opportunities, evangelism and church planting, medical care, Well drilling, assisting with community development and training foreign and national Christian aid workers to continue Iris’ mission. As our organizational capacity has grown we have been privileged to extend many of these activities to other nations, a growing list which currently includes Brazil, India, Indonesia, Israel, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Nepal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, South Korea, Sudan and Tanzania.
