We Help Provide Equipment For Development Projects

Friends in Action International is dedicated to providing essential support for development projects by supplying the necessary skills and manpower through volunteer teams. We are committed to meeting a wide range of construction challenges. From electrical to plumbing, to masonry, excavating, welding, carpentry and more! We recruit and mobilize skilled teams to assist the missionaries and nationals with sustainable construction and training tailored to the missionaries needs and location. Additionally, we actively contribute towards the ongoing efforts of full-time missionaries and project facilitators, either through sending them directly or through our generous support.

International Shipping

FIA recognizes the ongoing need to provide materials and goods to help the missionaries travel deeper, reach further, and stay longer to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. Partnering with over 1,000 missionaries FIA has shipped containers, pallets, and crates to over 58 countries around the world and to many remote locations.

Clean Water Initiative

By providing well drilling services, water collection systems, and water pipeline construction, FIA is able to reach the unreached with much needed fresh water. Clean water, along with proper collection and hygiene training, empowers men, women, and children and will be their life changing daily reminder of Jesus the Living Water.
