Last week, we selected Faith Hope and Charity Ministries as our first charity of the month. This nonprofit Christian ministry has spent more than two decades supporting village pastors and children of South India.
The organization sponsors 45 pastors annually who tend to a community of more than 4,000 people – many of which are orphans, widows, homeless or poor. Most recently, Faith Hope and Charity Ministry has been raising funds to build a new orphanage.
This cause is especially important to Rocketeer Sandeepa Vemireddy, who was raised in South India.
“I grew up seeing homeless, hungry kids coming to our community begging for food,” she said. “As a child, I felt helpless that I was not able to help them.”
Sandeepa said she nominated this charity because she knows the owners and their goal to help as many kids as possible.
As a creative way to support them, Sandeepa even used one of her kid’s birthday parties as a reason to donate rather than receive gifts.
We hope that with our contribution, Faith Hope and Charity Ministry is one step closer to building their orphanage. To learn more about this organization or to make a donation, click here.
