Feeding Children in Madagascar

Brad Senekal – Outreach Director, Joyce Meyer Ministries South Africa Office

It is estimated that 50,000 children live on the streets of the capital city of Madagascar. Hand of Hope has teamed up Empowerment Advocates International to begin a new project aimed at changing the lives and worldviews of these children.

Through an inner-city House of Hope, over 300 children are able to experience love, affection and kindness along with a nourishing meal. Before the children are fed a meal, they are taught how the love and compassion of Christ can help change their lives forever. Many children have already accepted Christ. Lives are beginning to change, and perceptions are already shifting.

What began as a daily feeding for 130 children has already rapidly grown to over 300 with more coming almost every day. This is only possible through our friends and partners support. With 50,000 children to reach, we know our work in Madagascar has only begun!

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.
