2018 has been a year to remember! We have so much to be grateful for, and it is all because of generous sponsors and donors like you. You made 2018 successful and impactful. We look forward to 2019 with hope and anticipation of what’s to come.

We are pleased to announce that we have a funding surplus for the 2018 fiscal year! At the beginning of the 3rd quarter, we needed to raise 125,000 to have all budgets fully funded. We were able to cover that and more through the Lord’s faithfulness and your generosity. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

All of the HELPS programs thrived in 2018, and we are looking forward to even more stories of success and growth in 2019.

H—the Health Program saw a 33% decrease in number of malnourished children

P—the Peace and Faith Program shared Jesus with over 7000 people
