Hope of Life International
At Hope of Life International, every life is precious to God and precious to us. For more than 20 years, Hope of Life International has been the helping hands, loving arms, and busy feet of Jesus Christ in the heart of Guatemala.
Through humanitarian aid efforts, rescue missions, feeding programs, and more, Hope of Life International has carried out its mission to hear the cry of the hungry.
To date, Hope of Life International manages 78 feeding stations, some over 400 miles from the center of the campus. These stations provide nutritious meals to those less fortunate. Many are located high in the mountains, where transportation is limited to burros. Others are located at garbage dumps, town squares, and schools. Over 350,000 meals are served each month by Hope of Life International.
One of the leading causes of death among Guatemalan children is contaminated water. This unclean water is the cause of many life-threatening illnesses and diseases. In many villages, the closest water source is a stream located many miles away from the center of the community. This water source takes hours to get to by foot, and since it is the only water in the area, it is used for bathing, laundry, cooking, and is the place where both humans and livestock go to drink. Hope of Life International has been installing clean water wells since 2006, and has completed over 200 to date. Each well costs between $5,000 and $15,000 and serves anywhere from 400 to 3,000 men, women and children.
Nothing breaks our hearts more than the cry of a starving child. With your help, we can provide a safe, loving, nurturing, Christ-filled refuge for every child—every adult—that comes into our care. CLICK HERE to visit our website:
