Torrential rain, howling wind, raging rivers, and massive mudslides have affected more than 300,000 people living on the island nation of Sri Lanka in South Asia. Your gift will help provide dry ration food parcels, kitchen supplies, education materials, perinatal care packages, female health and sanitation kits, and first aid supplies for families in Sri Lanka. Some areas received more than 300 millimetres of rain in 24-hours, triggering the deadly flash floods and mudslides that have claimed 104 lives. The killer storm has forced more than 100,000 people to seek shelter in evacuation camps.
The journey out of poverty often begins with clean water.
This is especially true for families in southern Ethiopia. When clean water is present, families are able to focus on improving their lives through health education and hygiene training. They are also able to increase their income by participating in self help groups that provide mutual support, income-earning skills training, and low-interest loans that enable women to start businesses.
Give medicines and medical supplies and save lives.
More than one-third of the Dominican Republic's population live on less than $1.25 a day. Your gift today will help provide a wide variety of important medicines and medical supplies to 40 rural medical clinics serving thousands of the poorest of the poor.
A gift to "where most needed" enables HOPE to increase support to important initiatives among families and children that need help right away.
Low administration is only one part of our story.
Every dollar counts because every person counts. The real story is in the outcomes your donations create for the poorest of the poor.
The impact of your gift continues year after year.
One gift from you keeps on giving for years to come as people share what they've learned with others in their community.
We're committed to the poor and to you.
Self-reliance for the poorest of the poor and accountability to you. These two things matter most to us.
Donate to help people gain access to clean water, nutritious food, good health, education, and income generating skills.
Provide monthly support for an orphaned or disadvantaged child, a family, or an entire community and free them from poverty.
