Making a Difference 
praying, pledging and providing hope through WorldHope Corps

As a small volunteer corps of “believers without borders for the common good”, WHC has raised over a million dollars and taken on relief and development projects in Malawi, Uganda, Ethiopia, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Belarus, and Palestine.

We have delivered over one million dollars in humanitarian aid, awarded over 30 Hope Scholarships, trained hundreds of people in HIV care and community development, and drilled over 60 village wells. Impressive results for a small organization with a small budget and only two paid staff!

WHC has a donor-advisory provision whereby donors can designate their gifts to an approved project led by a donor-advisor. Examples of these projects include Village wells, Hope Scholarships for Youth, Community Development Training, and Anti Malaria Mosquito Net Distribution.

I invite you to prayerfully consider a project in our catalog that warms your heart and support our good works today.

Seeking the Shalom of the Community,

Founder and Executive Director

 

 

Village Wells in Malawi
 living water is clean water for daily life

Parasites, worms, cholera and dysentery contribute to the deaths of thousands of children everyday in Africa, and simple access to clean water saves countless lives. Why should women and children have to fetch water from a dirty water hole, or walk 3+ miles every day to the nearest well? We have drilled over 60 deep-water village wells since 2007, each serving from 300 to 3,000 families. We want to drill at least 3 new wells each year. Your most generous gift will help save children from waterborne diseases, improve community heath and help families thrive.

The cost of a deep village well is $10,000
