Why? To bring HELP, HOPE and HEALING to those who needed it most!!!
We want to thank everyone for your prayers and thoughts during a few stressful hours for our team in the Cote d’Ivoire on the final Sunday evening of THP IC ’16. Even in the tragedy that occurred in Abidjan, the THP “home” base, we were reminded once again of the tremendous longing for HELP, HOPE and HEALING that is needed all around the world. Because of your support and participation, we can continue to do what we have been called to do.
The 20+ successful surgeries, the 300+ children touched through the soccer camp, the countless hours and sweat expended on the school construction project (which can now open in September) and the 3 villages visited — ALL were made possible because The Hanna Project continues to fulfill its mission, through and with so many people, right alongside our Ivorian partners!
