NEW HOPE is a charity which started in 1998. We are registered in the United Kingdom with the Charity Commission, charity number 1070796.

We are also registered with HMRC to claim gift aid, and have full accounting and governance policies in place, overseen by our board of Trustees.

What we do

We estimate that, since 1998, over 300,000 people have been treated, and the Gospel preached to 50,000.  A number of new churches have been planted.

We carried out 7 missions to rural Guyana, working with Pastor Yasin from 1999 to 2007. ‘Guyana’ means ‘land of many waters’ as you have to travel by boat to go anywhere! Many journeys were very long, always open to the elements!

Between 2001 to 2016 we worked in the poor southern island of Mindanao in the Philippines, initially with Pastors Boni and Odette, and more recently with their son Joshua, and daughter-in-law Amette. We have trained a team to continue the work. Some villages were very hard to access!

From 2004 until 2016 we worked with Pastor Emmanuel and Florence in Uganda. We worked with local faithful people including Aisha, Frank and Lydia, carrying out missions in poor rural areas. They continue to carry out village missions every 3-4 weeks, also preaching the Gospel.

We gave away thousands of pairs of reading glasses, resulting in profound joy in those who received them!

We still help Pastor Azariah in the poor western area of Uganda with his school, which now has over 100 pupils.

Since 2016 our main work has been with Pastor Alexandre and Pastor Dan in eastern Congo. We support a school, a feeding programme and we have recently opened a 24 bedded clinic/small hospital there, in the border town of Kasindi.

A very significant part of our work has been due to this creature. Arguably the most deadly living being on earth, it’s injecting proboscis draws blood from us humans, and in the process, spreads malaria.

Children are especially vulnerable, particularly when weakened though poor diet, intestinal worms and concurrent respiratory infections. Yet treating all of these costs pence and truly saves lives.

In 2017 we wrote ‘5 loaves and 2 fishes’, a book describing many of our mission stories.  We have seen God do some amazing miracles!

You can buy the book, either a paper copy or a Kindle version.

Ebola

We thought Ebola was finished. There need to be 42 clear days without a case. But at day 40 there was a case in Beni. On 11th April 2020, the Ministry of Health confirmed the death from Ebola of a 26-year-old man in the city of Beni in North Kivu province. An 11-month-old girl treated at the same health centre also died, it was announced on Sunday, and a 7-year-old girl is currently being treated for the virus.

It marks a significant blow for the Central African country, which had previously recorded its last Ebola case on 17 February and was on the verge of ending an outbreak that has killed more than 2200 people since August 2018.

Measles

Meanwhile measles has killed 6,000, mostly children. A vaccination programme would have prevented them all.

Covid-19

There are isolated cases of Covid-19 in DRC, but no widespread infection at this time.
