Christmas gave us a gift that changed everything . . . hope!

During this time of year, I can’t help but remember those living in the most
extreme conditions—those trapped in a world of hopelessness.

Poverty, disease, oppression . . . they steal everything away from you,
including the ability to hope. Without the fundamentals of healthy living—
food, clean water, medical care, education, opportunity—lives are robbed of
dignity . . . reduced to simply surviving.

But we were created for so much more than just surviving. We have been
given the promise of hope. And it’s a promise that was meant to be shared.

This Christmas, will you and your family consider sharing the gift of eternal
hope with those who desperately need it? Gifts of Hope was created to
strategically meet physical needs so doors can be opened to meet spiritual
needs. Simply put, providing help for today means giving the gift of hope
for tomorrow.

We’ve been given a gift that has the power to change everything. How can
we not share it?

Gifts of Hope Catalog - Christmas 2013

  1. 1. Christmas gave us a gift that changed everything . . . hope! During this time of year, I can’t help but remember those living in the most extreme conditions—those trapped in a world of hopelessness. Poverty, disease, oppression . . . they steal everything away from you, including the ability to hope. Without the fundamentals of healthy living— food, clean water, medical care, education, opportunity—lives are robbed of dignity . . . reduced to simply surviving. But we were created for so much more than just surviving. We have been given the promise of hope. And it’s a promise that was meant to be shared. This Christmas, will you and your family consider sharing the gift of eternal hope with those who desperately need it? Gifts of Hope was created to strategically meet physical needs so doors can be opened to meet spiritual needs. Simply put, providing help for today means giving the gift of hope for tomorrow. We’ve been given a gift that has the power to change everything. How can we not share it?

  2. 2. AID In order to bring development, we must first ensure that basic needs are met. Providing physical aid is our approach to establishing long-term care. How can a community thrive if its children lack even the basics: food, clean water, shoes, or medicine? Only when their most essential needs are met can families and villages begin to move toward sustainable health. We must invest in resources that meet immediate physical needs while simultaneously building toward a stronger, healthier tomorrow for individuals caught in a cycle of despair. Together, we can build the foundation for lasting well-being. Clean water, food, medicine, and physical protection are where the real strength of a community begins. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. – Hebrews 13:16 CONTENTS 5 Aid 11 Education 16 Sustainability 22 Community & Spiritual Development 28 Merchandise 33 Year in Review 35 World Help Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. – Galatians 6:2 4 5

Give to provide meals high in vitamins and minerals, and build strong bodies and futures. $288 Feed one child for a year Item #4596 Coats For thousands in the Himalayas, winter is only about survival.

Shield a child from extreme elements by giving the protection and comfort of a coat. $35 Provide one warm coat Item #4550 Bedding Too many children in developing communities sleep with little more than a mat on the cold ground. Provide a child with warm, comfortable bedding for the restful night’s sleep they deserve. $200 Provide one bunk bed Item #4597 $35 Provide bedding (pillow, sheet, blanket) Item #4598 OperationBabyRescue Malnutrition means so much more than hunger. It is a lifestyle defined by poverty, water-related illnesses, pain, hopelessness . . . and 20 million children today suffer acutely. Operation Baby Rescue is a holistic strategy to free these children from desperation, restore them to full health, and ensure they will never be terrorized by this pain again. Help rescue a child from malnutrition, and restore a future that is stronger than ever. $1,200 Save a child’s life Item #4574 Life-SavingSupplies In the face of crises . . . in the aftermath of natural disasters, we cannot afford to be unprepared. World Help works year round to collect supplies and ship containers of life-saving aid like clothing, clean water, food, and basic medicines for devastated individuals.

In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. – John 16:33 6 7 Overwhelmed by poverty, Fernando’s mother left when he was barely a year old and already malnourished. While his father worked during the day, his 12-year-old sister did the best she could to care for Fernando and his twin brother. But they had been sick for months. Their tiny bodies seemed to shrink by the day. It would take a miracle for them to survive . . . a miracle that came in the form of life-saving medical supplies at one of World Help’s rescue centers.
  4. 4. MedicalEmergencyFund Poverty turns preventable conditions into death sentences . . . but we believe every child deserves the chance to live a healthy life. The Medical Emergency Fund (MEF) is a ray of hope for children whose very lives hang in the balance. Help us act immediately on behalf of a child with a life-threatening medical crisis.

  5. 5. Immunizations Immunizations are simple, fast . . . and lifesaving. Yet 20 million children go without them every year. Help provide crucial vaccinations and set the stage for success, a greater quality of life, and hope for a future free from the chains of disease. $50 Provide one child with preventative treatment Item #4561 Blankets An astonishing number of families survive without the protection of warmth in cold regions around the world. Help stop the agony of frigid nights for children and their families by giving the gift of blankets. $25 Provide a comfortable blanket Item #4554 EDUCATION Education is the pathway out of sickness, gender inequality, underdevelopment, and the perpetual cycle of hopelessness generated by extreme poverty. The benefits of successful schooling are enough to transform entire families . . . and that impact reaches the next generation. Primary education and skills training are directly related to lower infant and maternal mortality, higher incomes, and better protection against disease. We must treat it as a priority if we want to see successful development and sustainable growth. Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous and they will add to their learning. – Proverbs 9:9 10 11 “There were times when I had no good blankets to keep myself warm. But with the blanket you gave me, I am no longer cold during the night and I’m able to sleep comfortably.” – Lalchawimawi, from India
  6. 6. SchoolUniforms Too many children are missing out on an education that could change their lives simply because their families can’t afford mandatory uniforms. Tragically, this basic requirement prevents thousands of children from attending school. Give a uniform and unlock a child’s potential through education. $22 Provide one child with a school uniform Item #4591 SchoolSupplies Can you imagine going through school without pens or pencils—not even something to write on? This is the case for thousands of schools in impoverished communities, but we can help them foster better education. Create a successful learning experience for a child in need by giving essential school supplies. $40 Provide supplies for one year for a child Item #4592 SportsEquipment In countries ravaged by war, disease, and extreme poverty, sports can offer youth a little reprieve from the hardships they experience. Sports build community, strengthen social skills, and more. Yet many children only have access to improvised bats, shredded soccer balls, and makeshift nets. Provide new sports equipment and invest in healthy childhoods. $100 Provide sports equipment for a community Item #4577 BooksforKids Recreational reading doesn’t just develop critical reading skills—it gives children a greater world to dream in. Give to provide books and help children read better and think bigger. $5 Provide a child’s book Item #4581 Street gangs and violence are an ever-present influence on children living in Honduran suburbs. Not only do we help keep them off the streets through an afterschool program, we’re providing school uniforms for the “poorest of the poor,” giving children a sense of dignity. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. – Hebrews 13:2 12 13
  7. 7. VocationalSchoolScholarships A chance for secondary education is rare for young adults living in poverty. However, by providing training for in-demand skills, we empower these individuals with competence, dignity . . . and the ability to break free from the cycle of poverty. Invest in healthy families through a vocational school scholarship. $300 Provide one year of vocational school Item #4556 Hair-StylingTools andProducts Hair care is a reliable skillset for many in developing communities, but often they lack proper resources and tools. When you provide hair-styling equipment and products, you support a small business and, subsequently, the well- being of an entire family. $150 Provide hair-styling tools for one student Item #4595 SewingMachines A sewing machine is a gift that changes lives. Tailoring is at the heart of so many small enterprises around the world, and the proper tools can mean the difference between poor productivity and thriving businesses. $175 Provide a sewing machine for one student Item #4593 WeldingEquipment Welding is a powerful venue that meets thriving industry demands. But the equipment is expensive, which leaves thousands of trained individuals without the tools they need to utilize their trade. Supply welding equipment and help provide entire families with a stable income. $225 Provide welding equipment for one student Item #4594 With your help, Gifts of Hope provides the graduates of Gulu Vocational School in Uganda with the equipment they need to launch their own businesses. Every year, these tools allow them to begin using their training instantly, making an immediate difference. 14 15 Tools of the Trade Vocational schooling is an excellent alternative for individuals unable to pursue higher education. In-demand skills training not only ensures reliable incomes, but means a healthier way of life for entire families. ... and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills. – Exodus 35:31 “Ever since I got enrolled in this school, I managed to discover that I have great talent. My current life is better. I’m undertaking a course that will help me become an entrepreneur and earn a living.” – Valentine Zihinjishi
  8. 8. FruitTrees We can help stop hunger, vitamin deficiencies, and poor immunity by bolstering the nutrition of children in need. Fruit trees are an excellent solution for families with poor diets. Not only is the produce high in essential vitamins, but it can also be sold for additional income. $30 Provide a fruit-bearing tree Item #4583 Transportationfor ImpoverishedFamilies For many impoverished individuals, walking is their only form of transportation, which means heavy burdens and long journeys. Bicycles can provide a greater independence, reduced travel time, and a more efficient way to transport goods. $100 Provide a bicycle for one family Item #4572 Harvest-ProducingSeeds Gardens are a simple way to supply healthy food items for families on the brink of starvation. Our harvest- producing seeds prevent hunger, lower malnutrition rates, and create income from produce. $15 Provide seeds for one family Item #4559 SUSTAINABILITY Extreme poverty eliminates the most basic resources needed for long-term health. But how can a family or community build and grow if each day is lived out with the goal of simply surviving? Through Gifts of Hope, we invest in practices that will yield health and hope-filled futures year after year. Breeding livestock, growing gardens, selling milk, harvesting wool—these are all results of sustainable solutions. And they will continue to meet needs . . . generation after generation. 16 17 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life. – Proverbs 13:12
  9. 9. A Gift That Keeps Giving Livestock is an expensive commodity for many communities thatearntheirlivingthroughagriculture.Yetthetwo nearlyalwaysgohandinhand.Whenyouinvest inthegiftoflivestock,yousupplyfood,clothing, important fertilizer, means for an education, and healthcare . . . the benefits are endless.* Chickens Chickens are an incredible gift for a family in need. They are easy to care for and can be bred quickly—a simple but reliable source of nutrition and revenue. One chicken can potentially lay up to 300 eggs in a single year and their nitrogen- rich fertilizer is ideal for agricultural endeavors. $22 Provide a pair of chickens Item #4551 Rabbits The benefits of a pair of rabbits are immediate and have the potential to last years. They are a source of essential nutrition for children and can be sold or traded often. $2O Provide a pair of rabbits Item #4567 Goats Goats give a family important nutrients and milk products to sell. Their ability to thrive in harsh conditions make them the perfect animal to raise in regions with difficult terrain. Give the gift of a goat and provide critical nutrition, and a reliable source of income. $100 Provide one goat Item #4555 Beehives Beehives mean so much more than just honey to sell. Their ability to pollinate can transform agriculture. Give beehives and help improve the overall health of a community. $160 Provide one beehive Item #4569 $800 Provide five beehives Item #4568 Not only was the death of Arivaire’s husband life- shattering, she also faced the cost of raising a family by herself in the unforgiving slums of Rwanda. But Gifts of Hope is changing that. Arivaire and her children now have rabbits to sell, trade, and use for extra nutrition.

  10. 10. The benefits of a livestock bundle are enough to save lives and transform entire communities. These animals have been strategically chosen for their reliable profit—milk, eggs, wool, meat, and fertilizer. Combined, they mean superior nutrition, resources for clothing and bedding, the ability to breed, and produce to sell . . . transforming an entire community. $3,000 Provide 2 cows, 2 pigs, 2 sheep, 2 goats, and 2 dozen chickens Item #4565 Cows Cow’s milk is a fantastic source of calcium and protein for a child in need. Additionally, the milk from one dairy cow is enough to sustain a small family with a steady source of revenue. It’s an investment that meets multiple needs while building toward a healthier tomorrow. $1,000 Provide one dairy cow Item #4558 Sheep One sheep can yield 30 pounds of wool every year, providing a family with clothing, bedding, and an abundance to sell. Sheep’s milk is also an excellent source of protein and vitamins for undernourished children. $120 Provide one sheep Item #4584 Pigs Pigs are a powerful gift for families struggling through poverty—their benefits are abundant, making them a strategic resource. Not only are they a great source of protein for children, they can also be sold for considerable amounts at the market. Additionally, one pig alone can produce up to four litters of ten piglets in a single year! $200 Provide one pig Item #4557 20 21 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said:“It is more blessed to give than to receive.” – Acts 20:35 Calcium is the building block of our bones and helps prevent diseases like Osteoporosis. It is also essential for other functions such as nerve transmission, muscle contraction, and blood clotting. Pork is high in protein and essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids good for overall health. LivestockBundle
  11. 11. 22 23 SmallHomes Countless households in impoverished South American communities are headed by single women, and their homes are often defenseless against intruders and extreme weather. In many of these rural communities, a typical home is constructed of salvaged materials like tin and plastic. The majority consist of only one room with dirt floors and no running water. But together, we can build safe places to live for vulnerable single- parent families struggling to survive. $7,250 Provide a home for a family in need Item #4560 $100 Provide one share of the cost of a home Item #4562 ClinicsofHope The lack of professional medical care in sub-Saharan Africa is astounding. Thousands die needlessly because they rely on tribal remedies or witch doctors. For others, medical attention is simply too far away to access in time. But we can preserve countless lives by building Clinics of Hope where emergency care is readily accessible. Give to build a medical clinic and improve childhoods, restore futures, and save lives. $30,000 Provide one clinic Item #4571 $300 Provide one share of the cost of a clinic Item #4576 Community & Spiritual Development Holistic health begins with a strong infrastructure— physical, social, and spiritual. These elements allow a community to move forward with dignity and competence. Yet so many villages and regions lack these unifying fundamentals. As a result, forward progress remains nonexistent. Building a strong infrastructure means ensuring a community has access to clean water, shelter, medical facilities, schools, and churches. Together, they build a foundation for sustainable growth and long-term health. They also pave the way for new standards of development, allowing a community to thrive. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. – Romans 12:13 “God has remembered us.” – Villagers of Kirinda, Uganda, after hearing they would receive their first medical clinic.
  12. 12. $15,000 Provide a deep bore well Item #4578 $5,000 Provide a water project Item #4579 $45 Provide clean water for three people Item #4590 Clean-WaterProjects Waterborne diseases kill more than 3.4 million people yearly . . . claiming the lives of 4,500 children every day. In fact, dirty drinking water is at the root of malnutrition, infant mortality, preventable diseases, low school enrollment, and ultimately, the cycle of poverty. By building clean-water wells and implementing water systems around the world, we can prevent water-related illnesses, save lives, and build healthier children, families, and communities. 24 25 HomesofHope Of the 16 million AIDS orphans globally, nearly 15 million live in sub-Saharan Africa. In the aftermath of the epidemic, families were ripped apart, virtually destroying the familial system and creating an entire generation of orphans. At the height of the crisis, World Help began building Homes of Hope for those left behind. These unique facilities are caring for children and young adults directly impacted by the devastation of AIDS. Each child receives nutritious food, education, medical attention, and is raised in a safe and loving environment. These homes make up “Villages of Hope.” $25,000 Provide one Home of Hope Item #4586 $100 Provide one share of a Home of Hope Item #4587 ————————————————————— $100,000 Provide one Village of Hope Item #4588 $400 Provide one share of a Village of Hope Item #4589 “Everyone’s health has improved.

There is enough water for the cattle, cooking, drinking, and bathing.”–Dithabhai, from Rajasthan, India Truly I tell you, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to the Messiah will certainly not lose their reward. – Mark 9:41
  13. 13. 27 “We used to attend church in a small hut with 150 believers, and it was very difficult. People began to show less interest in attending. We prayed for a church building and God answered our prayers. Believers are increasing now.” – Gyanchand, from Guarat, India DigitalBibles As the digital age dominates how we know communications today, we must be prepared to evangelize in the same way. In China, we currently format USB drives with copies of the Bible, Christian literature, Bible study resources, worship music, and more. The contents of each USB can be easily shared with others. Give to support this strategic project and help to impact the next generation of China’s leaders with the life-changing message of the Gospel. $20 Provide one USB Item #4585 Bibles For thousands of persecuted believers around the world, a Bible is a cherished gift they can only dream of owning. One copy of God’s Word can bring incredible encouragement and has the potential to be shared with dozens of individuals. When you give the gift of a Bible, you give a source of hope and impact countless lives. $5 Provide one Bible Item #4573 ChurchPlanting World Help believes one of the most effective ways to share the Gospel is by empowering nationals to reach their peers through church planting. By supporting biblically trained leaders who are committed to sharing the love of Christ, we invest in strategic methods of spiritual development. Reach into the very heart of a nation by giving to plant churches in some of the least-reached areas of the world. $1,000 Plant one church in one community Item #4563 ChurchBuildings Church buildings are a refuge for persecuted Christians around the world. They are a source of spiritual and emotional care and, in many cases, even physical protection. Give to build a church for a persecuted congregation and provide a place of refreshing encouragement and support. $7,500 Provide one church building Item #4570 After receiving his first Bible, one young Bengali boy couldn’t keep its contents to himself. He shared what he had read with his family, who then shared with their entire community. Today, 1,000 people in this village are waiting to declare their faith through baptism! I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. – Psalm 119:11 26 “The people are responding to the preaching of the Gospel. Lives are being transformed and healed.”– Church Planter

  15. 15. 30 31 Without opportunity, potential goes undiscovered. World Help believes in empowering individuals by giving them the chance to strengthen their existing talents. Our tailoring programs in Africa do just that. Each of the following items was created by a student working toward a vocational degree. When you purchase these gifts, you support the livelihoods of entire families. Each purchase creates opportunity, cultivates potential, and restores dignity. Every gift includes the name and testimony of the craftsman who made it. Basilia and her sister are all that’s left of their family. She owns a small plot of land which she cultivates herself in order to support her younger sister; however, the return is meager. But with each passing day, Basilia has more hope for the future. “Now that I’m in the tailoring program, Ihavehope forourfutures.” RwandanMessengerBag Sewn by Rwandan vocational students, each bag comes with the name and testimony of the student who made it.

  16. 16. 32 33 Impact Last year’s Gifts of Hope campaign was the most successful to date, and World Help couldn’t be more grateful for the lives forever changed as a result. Through vocational training, you empowered young women previously enslaved to prostitution. You gave the gift of God’s Word to villagers in rural Bangladesh who had never heard the name of Jesus. You equipped AIDS orphans in Zimbabwe with an education that allowed them to excel in their national exams. You helped starving families regain their footing by providing livestock and agriculture opportunities. With every gift and every act of compassion, you instilled dignity and a sense of hope for those who needed it desperately. And this year, we want to do it again. There are still entire Chinese congregations studying from one Bible. Hundreds of low-caste Indian communities are waiting for clean water. Mothers in the slums of Uganda still rely on their bodies to make money for their families. PhilippineNecklace Colorful necklaces, beaded by hand, with a variety of stones from the Philippines. Colors will vary. $25 For one necklace Item #4726 PeruNativity Hand-painted, ceramic, 8-character nativity scene.

  17. 17. 34 35 World Help has offered help for today and hope for tomorrow for more than 20 years. World Help is a faith-based, humanitarian organization that exists to serve the physical and spiritual needs of people in impoverished communities around the world. We do this by partnering with compassionate individuals who have the vision to make a lasting difference. We rely heavily on international partners who personally know the needs of their countries. These faithful men and women not only help us identify needs on the ground, but also carry out the physical details of project implementation and follow up. Currently, World Help directs 87 percent of all resources to our global projects, using only 10 percent for administration, and 3 percent for fundraising. Every gift is maximized in order to bring the greatest amount of aid to those who need it most around the world. We have received the highest ratings from the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and the independent donor advocate organization, In order to experience true health, a child must have access to clean water, nutrition, education, medical attention, and love. Yet millions of children are without those foundational needs. They are living every day just to survive. World Help believes everyone deserves a healthy childhood. With the help of compassionate sponsors, we’re giving the gift of health and hope to thousands of children globally. Sponsorship isn’t simply a monthly gift of $35, it’s an investment in future leaders, parents, doctors, teachers . . . world changers. It unlocks the potential of impoverished children and sets them free to not only dream about their futures, but pursue them.
