"We envision a world transformed; a world that has been renovated by a globalmovement of compassion and justice evidenced by the eradication of needless suffering." Hungry For Life.
11 years ago my brother started Hungry For Life. HFL is a relief and development organization that is very different from other humanitarian organizations. HFL connects groups and churches looking to serve in third world countries.
"We work alongside a network of international leaders, assessing, planning and monitoring projects that bring lasting change to communities. We assist your group in partnering with these communities and build project plans specific to each of them. The reciprocal relationships formed bring life change on both sides of the world." (HFL)
HFL uses the 100% model. In which, 100% of project funds go directly to the field. Staff raise their own support and operational costs are covered by separate fundraising. In 11 years HFL has grown from 4 staff to over 30 and continues to connect many groups and churches who serve communities in South America, Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe.
I am so proud of my brother! Because of his faithfulness to God, thousands of lives have been changed.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27 NIV
Last month we visited rainy BC and I was able to update their family photos. Here are a few of my favourite!
