See what you did to change lives.

Everything you want to know about how HOPE invests your generosity to change the world is in this year's annual IMPACT REPORT.

We believe that despite what is happening in the world, together we can accomplish even more this year as we continue building on the 45-years of HOPE you’ve helped create.

Your compassion welcomes the neglected, displaced and forgotten into your life.

Your belief that every family is precious and should be free from extreme poverty enabled the generosity that transformed more than 427,000 lives through 59 initiatives in 17 countries this past year.

In addition to showing how donations are carefully stewarded, this year's report provides you with more than 50 key insights into the outcomes you're creating with your giving. You'll also learn how three courageous women transformed their families by gaining access to clean water, improving their food security and participating in the local economy.

Garbanso Gelo Emergency Update

Generosity and a quick response from supporters enabled our HOPE Ethiopia team to immediately meet the most urgent needs surviving families in Garbanso Gelo faced after a massive landslide washed away most of their community.

"The community exists in very devastating conditions, but even in this condition we're always looking towards a bright future."
Frehiwot, HOPE Ethiopia Country Director

In addition to ongoing efforts to reduce the impact of COVID-19 where HOPE is working in Ethiopia, the compassion of supporters is enabling traumatized families in Garbanso Gelo to begin rebuilding their lives and get back to constructing the water system that will provide clean water for their community.

A FEW HIGHLIGHTS...

EMERGENCY FOOD

With much of the community's food supply destroyed by the landslide, emergency supplies were trucked to Garbanso Gelo as soon as conditions would allow.

17,500 Kgs 

CORN FLOUR - A STAPLE AMONG FAMILIES
1,250 Litres
COOKING OIL TO PREPARE MEALS

HOUSEHOLD HEALTH 

In the aftermath of the landslide, basic household items and sanitation supplies ensure the health of families is not put at further risk.

400 Bars
HAND SOAP TO MAINTAIN SAFE HYGIENE
2,000 Items
BASIC HOUSEHOLD ITEMS LIKE UTENSILS, PLATES, MUGS, WASH BASINS AND WATER BUCKETS

COVID-19 Pandemic Forces HOPE International to Make Life-Altering and Financially Devastating Decisions

March 13, 2020 - The escalating COVID-19 situation has demanded, as per the BCCDC's announcement yesterday afternoon, the required cancellation of all gatherings over 250 people. To that end, all HOPE International events across Canada this spring, including our Vancouver Film Premiere and Gala, will be rescheduled.

This poses a tremendous challenge to HOPE. We rely on your participation at our events to support our vital work overseas. Support that provides clean water, food security and livelihoods for millions of children and families facing unimaginable need.

This Christmas, the love you have in your heart can become a present that changes lives when you choose gifts from our GIFTS OF HOPE giving catalogue.

When you select gifts from this year’s catalogue, you are choosing to love families who have been pushed to the margins of our societies and world – they are all but forgotten. We remember them, and we take heart in knowing that you do as well!

You can educate children, help families grow ample supplies of nutritious food and start small businesses that generate a sustainable income. You can help plant forests of hope and help families cope with a changing climate. You can ensure that clean water is available right in communities or homes.

Want to do something special for your family and friends this Christmas? Give gifts of HOPE to celebrate and honour the people you love and care about. When you do, we will send them a note describing the gift you have given to a child, family or community.

Every gift in our GIFTS OF HOPE giving catalogue lasts well beyond the season and is your opportunity to share the love in your heart with others this Christmas.
