Living With Hope
LIVING WITH HOPE is an organization dedicated to share HOPE, Mobility Devices and training to those living with disabilities in Africa. This will empower them to reach their highest God-given potential. It’s true that your deepest passion comes from your deepest pain. My deepest pain and suffering has given me the passion to go back to Africa and serve people affected by disability. These people are so desperately in need of hope.
Approximately, 80 million people live with disabilities in Africa, 10% of the population but possibly as high as 20% in the poorer regions. People with disabilities are usually excluded from schools, opportunities to work and even the community. This means that they live their lives as the poorest of the poor. They face social stigma, discrimination and even death because they are considered to be of no value or a curse to the community.
In most cases, the family of a disabled child will try to hide him or her away from the community. It is my prayer that God will use me to help these people. LIVING WITH HOPE Ministry will work with people with disabilities in Kenya and the rest of Africa. This mission will focus on wheelchair distribution and educating families and communities to care for and to include people with disabilities as an important part of society.
