Our distribution of Christmas packages was fantastic, thank all of you!
The distribution was worldwide and the staff worked very hard! None of this would become a reality without you!




It has been and is a great and much-appreciated success! Our digital Christmas packages, which are ordered through our gift shop starofhope.us/shop and then the good and livestock is purchased locally on-site in the countries, we did not know how you, the donors would react. We are reaching out to vulnerable families in all our project countries in a more cost-effective way; a way that also helps the local economy.



The help has reached most projects around the world, and now the joyful images have begun to come in. Look, enjoy and feel proud - for this joy you have created!
A big thank you to those who packed a package or donated a gift for this important promotion! It makes a difference for so many people!



Depending on the country, the packaging for the Christmas packages looks a bit different. In some countries it is a wrapped package, in others, the Christmas gift is delivered in a basket or bag. In any project where the distribution of packages is more difficult, we hand out gift cards. Some receive and will receive livestock. Regardless, your gifts the real underlying action is the gift of Christmas joy and hope for the future. More stories and reports will be posted soon.




God Bless YOU!

Did you Give? Thank you and God Bless you!

#givingtuesday 2019
This year, on Tuesday, December 3nd 2019, Star of Hope is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Last year, thousands of organizations in 150 countries came together to celebrate GivingTuesday. Over one billion dollars was collected.

The goal is more important than most, to do emergency food relief in Haiti, people will receive hope, love, and food. How much is unknown as it is up to you, right now it is give time.

Oh, you want more information, ok the short story is "give" today to your favorite charity or cause. #GivingTuesday™ inspires personal philanthropy and encourages bigger, better and smarter charitable giving during the holiday season, showing that the world truly gives as good as it gets.

#GivingTuesday is a movement grown from a simple idea an idea where anyone, anywhere can join and be a participant in any way shape or form; donating money, volunteering time or raising awareness of a cause you can be a part.

This year Star of Hope needs your #givingtuesday gift to help restore dignity to Haitians due to continued social-economic violence. ( In simple terms folks are starving, then neede you and me to help with food. It is that simple.

Prices in Haiti continue to rise, a 100% increase since last year and there is tremendous social-economic unrest. Food agricultural production is down and insecurity is up. Star of Hope staff reports limited travel possibilities in the country as roads are still blocked. Still today only half of our schools are running as semi-normal. Most of the ones that are running are far in the countryside. Star of Hope has a huge budget deficit with increased pricing and price gouging.

The world food program lately reported that 3.7 million people need help and that 1 million are in severe need of food assistance. That would be similar to the populating of Oklahoma being hungry while all in Montana were starving.

Star of Hope CEO Mark Preston says some of these reports from international organizations such as the world food program and the European Unions ECHO program use words like “food insecure populations”, that's great for international bureaucratic updates but I would like to express to the working man and woman that the term “food-insecure populations” mean people are worse than hungry, they are starving; perhaps not at risk of death but still starving. I wonder if the 8-year-olds who are starving in Haiti contemplate syntax over their hunger. What about you as an eight-year-old, hungry, starving...I bet you would pray for relief, for food! Let's answer the prayer.

Food insecurity is gone up at least 20% in the last 3 months in the rural areas and in the capital Port-au-Prince and the other larger cities food is worse than scarce.

Security concerns, political unrest, roads being closed all add to increasing prices during an already inflationary period.

Our Manager in Haiti Tony Bursiquiot says “The least that can be said so far is that the situation has not changed yet and that majority Haitians continue to fight in large numbers on the streets to ask the president to resign from his functions. The main roads leading to provincial towns are still blocked by trucks, trees and fired tires protected by sometimes armed protesters. Businesses and schools remained inactive, waiting for a positive outcome to the crisis, the things causing the severe food crisis.“

The main reason for this round of unrest is that the people of Haiti it seems to want the president Jovenel Moise to resign. The reason surrounding the action is varied however the protests have turned to violent demonstrations several times in the last months. This has resulted in burning buildings, blocking traffic, violent crowds and so on. The result is shortages of water gas food and medical supplies.

One outcome more, over 50 people are dead due to violence and the state of the infrastructure is uncertain, free travel and safe travel is not certain.

The effect on Star of Hope is enormous, only half of our 2200 children are attending a school where they work to break the chains of poverty with education.

Our Director Myrtha Dor says simply” ...the kids are hungry and scared, it is the worse situation as the children suffer the most, we need food help more than ever.”

Star of Hope is responding first and foremost by assisting the people in and around our projects with emergency food boxes. In Haiti, the staff says a “food kit” can sustain one family of 4 for about 1 month.

Star of Hope is accepting donations here www.starofhope.us/give and also via a crowdfunding solution reached by texting the word foodkit to 71777.
This year let's help Haiti.

Why would you not do it this way?

Be the Blessing!



Thank you.

You are so important to the children who benefit from your generous support. Thank You so much. Together with us, you have made great things happen this year. You have fed, given clean water, educated, kept healthy, built great things and brought children to Christ. What a great and huge thing we have done together, thank you.

We are proud of you and that we do not change our mandate. Right now, the children helped through you have gained a better life and are much better off due to you!
Thanks to you they are on the right path for a better future.

In the New Year, we will continue to do the work much the same way to get to the same goal of creating Godly men and women. 


Thank you!

Here are a few examples of what is on our hearts in the New Year and where your blessings would go.

• Continue to ensure our children receive a better education through:
• Teacher training 
• Continue the Lunch program “lunch buddy” (over 150 000 lunches has been funded because of our Lunch Buddy program)
• Drill more water wells.
• Provide more training and services to families caring for children with disabilities
• Conduct more Bible classes for adults, children, and youth
• Continue to develop a legacy giving fund.
• Start a daughter entity “Tent Mission”.

This year we will start a new entity called “Tent Mission” we have heard that some of you and some potential donors desire to give to a more evangelization specific bible true partner. That partner will be “Tent Mission” and will be under the Star of Hope umbrella.
Inversely those who want to give to different development and classic education can continue with Star of Hope.

Blessings and hope to you and yours for a wonderful New Year.

Star of Hope


Thank you and Blessing of peace for you and yours. As we look to helping the children and youth in out 15 countries we give a gentle reminder to remember yours and those in your circles, the good book says, "for even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall. But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don't get tired, they walk and don't lag behind."

So why not be one who gently helps the children and youth.

All of us at Star of Hope say "Thank you for all you have done"
