ethiopia and uganda

Yesterday was my six year work-anniversary at Children’s HopeChest. I have no idea how that time flew by so quickly. I have grown so much in this job and I have had such an honor of traveling to Guatemala, Swaziland, Ethiopia and Uganda to see the transformational work that is happening around the world through our partnerships. It’s been six months since my trip in May to Ethiopia and Uganda, and for some reason it always take me so long to post photos after a trip like this. I think it’s because there are so many stories to tell with each photo. It’s truly hard to find words to express what it is like to travel to places where you see some of the greatest human suffering, but you also experience some of the greatest beauty and joy imaginable.

HopeChest empowers orphaned and vulnerable children and their communities through partnerships that cultivate holistic transformation and sustainability. We believe the most transformational, holistic, sustainable, and long-term change occurs when one community partners with another. We can do more together than we can alone, right?

So after way too many months, here is a glimpse into the lives that are being changed around the world through transformational partnerships. I am so thankful for the opportunity to capture these beautiful stories. If you want to learn more about how your community can be involved with HopeChest and partner with a community overseas, just let me know.

The rest of the photos are from one of my favorite new locations. The area where this CarePoint is, is know as the “forgotten land”. When we arrived we heard story after story that many of the children were only eating leaves off trees near their homestead for their daily meals. Many of the had medical needs that had not been treated. Now, that they have a partner, the children are eating nutritional meals six days a week, they are receiving medical care, and discipleship.
