Pictured above are some of the Haven of Hope children that were rescued from living
on the streets. |
Blue Ocean waters, palm trees, beaches, sounds like paradise - right? Wrong! This
is the setting in the Philippines Islands. Amidst these beautiful natural surroundings
are some of the most devastating, inhumane living conditions on the globe. Children
are literally thrown away. They are left on the streets to survive alone.
incidence that comes to mind is that of Juvy, a little boy six years old who with
his brother Alex, age seven, were forced to live underneath the front porch of
their mother and stepfather's shack. They were so desperate they ate bugs and
parts of rubber flip flops. We were able to rescue these children and place them
in "Haven of Hope" a children's home we established in 1998.
is just one of many stories of children living in deplorable conditions with no
one to care for them. The Hope Foundation was initially established to reach out
to these precious Philippine children who are so very deserving and yet so very
desperate. We set a goal to reduce the number of hungry, homeless, and helpless
children in the world. As of today, we have made tremendous progress increasing
our programs from their meager beginnings of just 80 to 90 per month to currently
feeding 1,000+ children in the Philippines. Through our networking with "Feed
the Children"; we are feeding the Native Americans in Wyoming as often as
possible. Beyond feeding the hungry we have given shelter to the homeless, street
children of the Philippines by networking with Carol Leaphart to provide finances
to build God's Town, a children's' home complete with dorms and a
cafeteria in Catbalogan. We then saw the great need to establish, Haven
of Hope a children's' home in Tacloban City for abandoned street children.
HOPE Foundation provides help to people who are not able to help themselves. We
provide more than just hope we provide food, clothing, medical treatment, and
education. The programs in the Philippines are overseen by Larry
& Bobbie Womack, Sarah Cha, and our Filipino staff. More information is available
on our Philippine Outreach page.
June 17th, 1999 we joined our vision with Gary and Connie Cochran and established
The Hope Center in Chatsworth, Georgia. The Center provides between 1200 and 1500
low or no income individuals with a balanced nutritional supply of groceries.
The Center was able to become independent in July of 2004 with the help of local
businesses and churches and continues to provide a desperately needed service
to the community.
Special projects are conducted here in the U. S. providing
families in need with Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinners and toys for the children.
We have also joined efforts with Feed the Children providing food
for Native American Indians.
