After several COVID related delays, distribution has begun. Hope Carrier bags are now in the hands of the children who need them. A day filled with anticipation, smiling faces and an energized staff, we held a successful distribution on March 3, 2021 in a village a couple of hours outside Hyderabad, India. We were able to provide roughly 100 kids with backpacks filled with essential school supplies, the book of John, discipleship lessons and other fun and useful items. Thank you for partnering with us to give these precious children a better chance at thriving in school!
