BRIDGE OF HOPE MISSION FIELDS BECOME A PARTNER BREAKTHROUGH

Appalachia

The unemployment rate is 30% in the Appalachia area of West Virginia. Families live in substandard housing and parents have no other choice than send their children to bed hungry. Some of the worst living conditions imaginable cause infants to visit the hospital monthly, and poverty mindsets create a generational pattern throughout the region. Due to economic hardships, difficulty in making ends meet has exponentially increased.


Bridge of Hope delivered enough aid into the heart of Appalachia to feed 3,000 families. World Harvest Bible College students teamed up with BOH missionaries to bag and distribute 40,000 pounds of groceries. Through the consistent generosity of partners and friends, parents were able to feed their children with the full assurance that regardless of the circumstances, God will never leave them.

Would you help us with a generous gift? We still need your faithful support as we continue to bring aid to desperate areas like Appalachia.
