1. Dumisane Youth Care Centre
Dumisani Youth Care Centre was founded in 2002 by Mission Hope to provide a home for orphaned and abandoned children.
The centre also provides a safe place for children who are removed from abusive families. Mission Hope supports Dumisani financially, emotionally, and spiritually.
Although these children are unable to live with their biological parents, we at Mission Hope do not believe in calling these children orphans as they have been adopted into the family of Christ.
“I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:18
2. Feeding Programmes
Our feeding program serves129 children daily in 3 different locations in the community:
This also provides wonderful opportunity for spiritual nourishment with the word of God.
“Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.” Isaiah 58:10
3. The Lighthouse Community Centre
In 2018 God spoke to us about establishing His church at one of our three feeding schemes located in one of the poorest communities around Memel.
This community centre building provides a platform for community events, crusades, bible school and Sunday meetings.
Our Lighthouse mother Anna has a zeal for Christ and knows the language, culture and needs of her community. She and others use the gifts and tools God has given them to minister to the people around them. This love draws people toward a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and moulds them into strong disciples of the faith, who in turn transforms others in their community.
The Lighthouse Fosta testifies to God’s presence and provision in the community.
4. Kingdom Kids
Kingdom Kids was founded by Inet Geldenhuys and receives monthly support from Mission Hope.
