“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” -Matthew 25:40.
HOPE worldwide was founded in 1991 in response to the call of the Scriptures to serve the poor, sick and suffering throughout the world. The organization began with just three small programs dedicated to bringing hope to vulnerable communities. In Abidjan, Ivory Coast, HOPE worldwide established an HIV/AIDS clinic to meet the critical health needs of a country plagued with disease. A medical clinic in Mexico City, Mexico provided treatment for children without access to quality healthcare.
Children were also the focus of educational outreach programs in Bangalore, India. In collaboration with the International Churches of Christ, HOPE worldwide quickly expanded its reach, building relationships with partner organizations and mobilizing thousands of volunteers. While maintaining its Biblical foundation, HOPE worldwide was compelled to find new and innovative ways to fight poverty, respond to disasters and foster a culture of volunteerism. Today, HOPE worldwide serves more than 1.5 million people annually in over 60 countries on every inhabited continent.
