The need for peace and reconciliation in South Sudan!

Shelvis and Nancy Smith-Mather are friends of ours and missionaries serving in Yei with Reconcile International. Their first son became the first American to be born in South Sudan when he was delivered at His House of Hope in early 2013, following pre-term labour at 32 weeks gestation.   Here, on CNN, Shelvis and Nancy share their thoughts of the

Precious little treasures!

If you are born early, or small, in South Sudan, you are likely to die. The odds are not good as the care is simply not available. Breathing difficulties, feeding difficulties, inability to maintain a normal temperature, and a greater risk of infection make the chances of surviving very small.   Yet God loves every baby, no matter how small

500 deliveries at His House of Hope!

This is an inspiring and powerful story! Life rather than death for a Sudanese woman and two Africans, giving their own blood, to save her life, though she was not of their family or tribe.

March 12 is moving day for His House of Hope

For the past few years, all the medical/nursing care at Harvesters has been provided out of “His Merciful Hand” clinic, a small room located near the orphanage. Over recent months, patient numbers have increased and this space has become frustratingly small.
