Description: CEMIPRE is a special needs ministry that focuses primarily on adults who have lost their sight. Through its training center, CEMIPRE seeks to evangelize and rehabilitate the blind. They provide training to meet daily needs, like using a cane for orientation, learning to use smart devices and computers for the blind, and teaching Braille using the Bible as the course text. CEMIPRE meets needs related to the emotional and physical aspects of blindness while calling men and women to spiritual sight.
SACDEM works with marginalized groups that have been rejected by society, including but not limited to prisoners, the mentally ill, people living in extreme poverty, and children born in prison. SACDEM develops prison Bible studies, offering counseling and help to inmates to make the depth of God’s forgiveness and grace understandable. SACDEM helps newly released prisoners reintegrate into society. In Argentina, children born to mothers in prison live with their mothers in the penitentiary system until they turn four. SACDEM takes care of these children of prisoners weekly, offering them a safe place to play and a break from the prison environment. After the child turns four and leaves prison, SACDEM continues to provide foster care for those who have no other relatives to care for them.
