News and Announcements

In 2018, the Lord is leading Bridge of Hope-World to continue to “build bridges” to help thousands more underprivileged children and women worldwide. On January 2, 2018, Bridge of Hope-World has literally built bridges connecting two villages in Mindanao, Philippines where hundreds of children and women crossed the old dangerous bridge daily. In February 2018, Bridge of Hope-World will be reaching out to public schools in the poorest area in the Philippines starting with a Medical Mission Outreach on February 24, 2018 to provide free medical services and giving away vitamins, medicines, and medical supplies to families in need. Please pray for the success of this mission.

In addition, Bridge of Hope-World is happy to announce that we are adopting another shelter for the impoverished children and women in Israel and in Palawan, Philippines in February 2018. We give all glory to our God! Join us in praying for funding to flow to help many more children and women in need worldwide.
