2017 Annual Report
So many people were rescued and countless lives renewed in 2017. And they have YOU to thank for that! You helped radically change the trajectory of people living in poverty and pain. Because of you, a child is receiving an education, a mother is easily collecting clean water, and a father is providing food for his family.
Thank you for giving of your time, talents, and energy in order to make our world a better place.

What do HELP and HOPE look like?
Every time you provide clean water, medicine, or a nutritious meal, you create opportunities to usher in the Gospel. That’s when true transformation can begin. That’s what help and hope are all about.
Aid and relief
When you help someone facing disaster or poverty, you give him a place to turn and establish a relationship of trust.
By providing clean water, homes, and agricultural resources, you provide long-term solutions to help break the chains of poverty.
While all programs have a spiritual component, Bible distribution and church planting are particularly powerful ways to spread God’s Word.
Education and sustainability
By providing education and vocational training, you empower others to build a better future for themselves.
You rescued children orphaned by war
Sylvia became the head of her household at age 12. She struggled to feed and protect her siblings in a refugee camp filled with 42,000 strangers. But you made sure Sylvia didn’t have to support her family by herself. You provided food and other essential supplies to help them survive.
You also helped send lifesaving relief to 863,000 people in 13 of the world’s most impoverished nations.
Your support brought clean water to India
Every single day — for more than 20 years — Golu and his wife dreaded gathering water. Their village of Lalghati was located two miles from the nearest well. And more often than not, they returned home from the well tired and empty-handed. “Many times our water-carrying vessels would be [dumped out] by the high-caste people,” Golu said. But you made sure that Golu and his neighbors had access to the clean water they needed.
You also helped sponsor 12,106 children in 156 programs throughout 21 countries.
In the face of disaster, you provided help and hope
“It looked like the entire village had been swept by a large broom.” That’s what our partner said after Hurricane Irma decimated Cuba. But because of your support, dozens of church planters were equipped to help local communities recover while also pointing them to the love of Christ!
This year, you helped plant 3,277 churches for Christians and seekers in countries such as China, India, and Nepal.
