Our Most Urgent Needs
The communities Bright Hope serves are in a vicious cycle of poverty and crisis. We believe we need to avoid creating dependency and empower people to lift themselves out of physical, economic and spiritual poverty. We are asking you, our Allies in this fight against extreme poverty, to support our most urgent program needs to empower the poor for today, tomorrow and eternally.
Here are three very important programs in great need of help.
HOPE FOR TOMORROW
Abuse destroys a person from the inside out, confining victims to an existence of fear, despair, and loneliness. But it’s even more destructive when abuse comes from the hands of a parent—the one who should be safeguarding you from harm—not inflicting it.
For Lucas, a 10-year-old boy living in Riberalta, Bolivia, the onslaught of abuse came from his drug-addicted father and other unhinged family members.
And Lucas isn’t the only one! Due to unhealthy cultural views and limited legal recourse for mistreated children, child abuse in Bolivia happens a lot.
HOPE FOR TODAY
For injured and sick children stuck in extreme poverty, options for treatment are nearly non-existent. That’s why we need your help to provide health and hope to kids like Chabu.
Often the biggest hurdle kids in Zambia like Chabu face is the difficult and costly multiple-day journey to the hospital in Lusaka for appointments and surgery. So, that’s where Bright Hope comes in. We provide a travel guardian and cover transportation costs to and from appointments and surgeries.
Giving God your yes could give health and hope to hundreds of kids like Chabu!
HOPE FOR TOMORROW
With each step into the Mathare Valley slum, the overwhelming smell of sewage gets stronger and stronger. Then, the sound of music floats down the alley from the local pub where most of the men are drinking and arguing away their pain. To your right, children play tag in the streets, unaware that without the right opportunities, they’re destined for a future of extreme poverty.
We’re working hard to help these kids break out of poverty, and we need your help! Your gift could give a scholarship to an elementary-aged child living in the Mathare slum.
