Approximately 85% of the Wayuu people live in poverty. And, over 500 Wayuu children die every year due to starvation and/or dehydration.
Bread of Hope empowers local churches to restore their value by meeting physical needs like food, water, shelter, and wellness.
Through our literacy groups, Bread of Hope provides hot meals to over 200 children throughout the week. Averaging around 30,000 meals yearly.
This past year we have started the Box of Hope which provides meals, toiletries, clothes, and school supplies for a Wayuu family of four for a month.
During the summer, we host mission teams who help local churches bless their communities through eye clinics, construction projects, and feedings.
We are currently working on a water project to build a well in La Guajira, Colombia. Clean drinking water is a scarce resource in the arid desert of La Guajira. Many sicknesses and deaths are linked to their lack of clean water.
Our hope with these projects is to glorify God and give local churches an opportunity to put God’s love on display to reach their unreached communities.
