2008 - What a Year for HOPE worldwide Afghanistan!

2008 has been a year of completions and new beginnings. In Afghanistan, any project you start has been a major victory. But completing that project is an even bigger victory. Simply due to the natural course of events in this fluid environment, many unplanned obstacles can come in your path. Though everyone wants to do good, sometimes it just takes longer than you ever could have imagined.

This year we have been able to bring to completion several projects that have faced innumerable delays.

Bringing Hope in Desperate Times

"Sometimes the buses are too full..."
Volunteer Ben Gurrentz on his experiences at Camp Miracles

The current economic crisis means HOPE worldwide is becoming the safety net for so many in need. As a result, we are forced to do more with less.

At Camp Miracles, which helps children from Philadelphia's most dangerous inner city neighborhoods, buses are in short supply. Our staff and volunteers are stretched to the limit.

Hope that Leads to Change - The First Update

Jaswinder (infant) and mother receive care from HOPE foundation
HOPE worldwide is very grateful to the International Churches of Christ for their faithful support of our work for the poor for many years. We want to help you as ministers to keep members informed about the great work God is doing through HOPE worldwide.

We are starting a "story of the month" that can be used as part of a Sunday service (poor collection) if you so choose. This is a resource to help you communicate with members about what their giving is doing for the poor and needy of the world.
