Saving Children in the Golden Triangle

David L. Meyer – CEO Hand of Hope

For years the area known as the Golden Triangle has been famous for its drug trade. At Hand of Hope we are trying to make it famous for happy, healthy, God-loving kids.

This week we visited 15 of our projects in the countries of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar (the Golden Triangle). Thousands of kids are fed and hundreds live in Hand of Hope children's homes. We have also built several churches and dug fresh water wells in the area. In one project that I first visited 5 years ago it was so great to see how good the kids looked now. When I was there the first time there were so many signs of malnutrition, but not this time. God loves kids!

Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
