Helping Blind Orphans in Belarus

David L. Meyer – CEO Hand of Hope

Hand of Hope has been working in the region of Belarus and surrounding areas for the past 15 years. Recently we became aware of a great need for a new water pump at the Response of the Heart orphanage for blind children in Belarus. This pump had broken and was no longer able to provide water for the 112 children at the orphanage. Without it, basic needs for water could not be meet – no bathroom facilities, showers, laundry, drinking water or way to prepare food were available. The director of the orphanage tried to raise funds to replace the broken pump through local support but was unable to obtain the funds needed.

Hand of Hope was able to partner with New Thing, Inc. to help provide a new pump. Water is flowing once again for the children thanks to the generous support of our partners! Together we are better!

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.
