Missions Aid International is a faith based Non-Governmental Organization registered in Nigeria for the purpose of providing solutions to the problem of poor, suffering or neglected communities in Nigeria and some other countries of Africa.

We are a human services arm of the Charismatic Renewal Ministries Inc.
As at May 2015 we had carried out projects in 65 communities in 25 states of Nigeria and in 24 communities in 8 countries of Africa. In these communities within and outside Nigeria, we provided Community Development Services, Free Medicare, Free Vocational Training and Empowerment and Social Welfare Interventions.

MISSIONS AID INTERNATIONAL : OCTOBER EVENT 2018
INFORMATION FOR VOLUNTEERS
The October Event program started in October 2004 with a free medical outreach to Ghana. Since then, this great idea of mobilizing professionals and resources to open up the unreached frontiers of Africa to the gospel of salvation has somewhat gone viral. Since 2004, the October Event train has entered ten countries: Ghana, Cameroun, Togo, Gambia, Benin Republic, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda. With our policy of engaging 2 countries simultaneously each year, six of these countries have enjoyed return visits during the same period. Also the October Event train has mobilized and trained over 350 project and missions volunteers comprising Medical Doctors, Vocational trainers, Pastors, Evangelists, Educationists, Career Missionaries, Youth Leaders and artisans. From amongst these 350 personnel, each October Event Project mobilizes between 60 and 100 volunteers who make themselves available at their own personal costs to ensure that our Lord Jesus never suffers a loss anywhere in the continent of Africa…read more here.
