Hopeful Hearts supports 67 children in two orphanages, where many are orphaned because of the 2004 tsunami, providing chicken, fish, fruit, and vegetables. Before we started helping these children, rice was their main food source. Our current level of support is only enough to give them 2 to 3 servings of chicken, fish, fruit, and vegetables per week. Additional funding would allow us to increase our food supplements for these children.
The children have additional needs besides food. When they are declared orphans by the government, they are required to attend schools that charge tuition, which makes it difficult for them to get an education.
Our support in Indonesia started in 2012 with the life-saving support of Baby Sarah, an orphan who needed special formula in order to survive. Hopeful Hearts helped in furnishing the special formula. God saved Baby Sarah through our help and the prayers of many Believers around the world.
Today, Baby Sarah is thriving and loves to sing. Her favorite food is rice. Please continue to pray for her – that God will raise her up in wisdom and stature and that she learns to love the Lord.
