Forward Edge International exists to share Christ’s love with those affected by poverty, disaster and sickness in the U.S. and around the world.
Forward Edge mobilizes hundreds of volunteers each year to alleviate suffering through disaster-response work, health care projects and programs for vulnerable children. Since 1983, more than 15,000 volunteers have served with Forward Edge in 35 nations, including the U.S.
To illustrate our mission, Forward Edge founder and president, Joseph Anfuso, often tells the story of a man with a bucket of water approaching a building engulfed in flames. Near the building is a row of sleeping firemen. The man must make a choice: Does he throw his bucket on the building, or on the row of firemen?
Forward Edge International has made its choice: we are waking up the firemen!
