Changing Lives, Empowering Families - STAND WITH KORAH

Changing Lives, Empowering Families! When I think of these words, I think of Serkalem. The contrast of her life today compared to when I first met her is nothing short of unbelievable. She is truly an example of someone whose spirit was trapped in the unrelenting grip of poverty and whose life has been dramatically transformed because someone else decided to... STAND WITH KORAH
As you will see in Serkalem's Story below -  Together, we can make a difference...

Serkalem's Story
I will always remember the day I met Serkalem. She was lying, deathly sick in bed, hardly able to move with a fussing baby latching lethargically onto her breast. Concerned fo…

Here are just a few of the ways we are "Working Together for Hope"

Family Sponsorship Keeping families healthy and keeping families together!

STAND WITH KORAH

I often think back to our first visit to Korah when we stumbled through its’ broken streets and stooped through a dingy doorway into the blackness of a small, dirt floor hovel and met a mother, utterly destitute and crippled, with three children. They had no food, no blanket or bed. This must surely grieve God. That day changed our lives and commenced us on the amazing journey of Hope for Korah. 
Much has happened since then; numerous doors have opened, allowing for us to stand in support of this mother and many others who are needy and suffering in Korah. We believe God has a vision for Korah that is beyond what any of us could or can imagine.

“For the Lord is high above the nations;  his glory is higher than the heavens.  Who can be compared with the LORD our God,  who is enthroned on high?  He stoops to look down on heaven and on earth.   He lifts the poor from the dust 
and the needy from the garbage dump.”  Psalm 113: 4 - 7 NLT


Now we would like to invite you to join us,
