Healthcare and education go hand in hand. If you’re sick, it’s tough to learn. That’s the philosophy of our newest partner, Faith Kunihira, and her ministry called Bringing Hope to the Family.
Faith swore she would never again be poor…but she felt the tug to leave her job in the city and go back home to a small town called Kaihura in Uganda to help her fellow families. In just 15 years, she has taken this town from a few buildings to a bustling center that is sustained by the work of Bringing Hope. That’s because Bringing Hope includes an elementary school of 253 children, clinic that serves nearly 900 people, orphanage caring for 110, agriculture program, vocational school of 63 boys and girls, support for micro-businesses, a church, and other physical and social services that truly make life better.
As for that fear of being poor again? Faith says, “God provides. It may not be in my time,” she says with a raised eyebrow and pointer finger, “but He does provide.”
We’re eager to tell more stories of Bringing Hope to the Family in the months and years to come. Hopefully this quick intro whets your appetite.
