Reflecting on the Impact of kids

For over three decades, your support has brightened the holidays for those in need across our project countries. Your generosity has been a source of joy for countless children and recipients. A heartfelt thank you to all who have contributed to our success over the years!

This Christmas, amidst the challenges of the ongoing pandemic, your contributions made a significant difference for many struggling families. In response to the current situation, our Christmas packages were tailored to meet essential needs, providing crucial assistance in the face of the pandemic.

All our gifts, presents, and livestock are sourced through our webshop (www.starofhope.us/shop), with actual purchases made in the respective countries. This approach not only benefits local economies but also enables us to reach more vulnerable families in each region.

We're thrilled to share that we've begun receiving images of joy and heartwarming video clips from the gift distributions. Your impact is evident, and while it takes time to compile reports, here's a glimpse of the positive outcomes following your generous contributions.

God bless you all for making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Together, we continue to spread joy and hope, transcending borders and making the world a brighter place. 

Our Christmas tradition of spreading joy continues!

For over three decades, we've been delivering Christmas gifts to children and families in need across our project countries. The heartfelt appreciation from the recipients has been unwavering, and 2023 was no exception.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has played a part and contributed to sustaining this meaningful tradition! This Christmas, the gift packages held extra significance for many hardworking families.

In recent years, we've embraced a digital approach to Christmas packages, available for order through our gift shop. This innovative strategy, appreciated for its environmental friendliness and cost-effectiveness, allows us to extend our reach to more vulnerable families in each country by purchasing and packing items on-site. This also helps the local economy.

Our dedicated local staff has done an outstanding job, ensuring that as many individuals as possible experience a brighter Christmas through these gift packages. Below, you'll find heartwarming pictures and videos showcasing the warmth and appreciation these packages bring. Every recipient expresses profound gratitude.

Take a moment to watch, enjoy, and share in the pride of being a part of creating this joy! A sincere thank you once again to those who packed a package or generously donated to this significant effort. Your contributions make a meaningful impact on countless lives and inspire hope for the upcoming year.

Dear Valued Supporters and Friends,I hope this message finds you well and in high spirits. As the holiday season approaches, I'd like to take a moment to share a heartwarming story that reminds us of the true spirit of Christmas.

"I remember so vividly when my kids were little, and Christmas was just around the corner. The day before, they were bursting with excitement, which had been building up throughout the Advent season. And then, at 4 AM on Christmas morning, I was awoken by a deafening commotion. Was it a break-in? An earthquake, perhaps? No, it was just our children racing up the stairs. A herd of active, or let’s say overactive animals wasn't exactly what us tired parents had wished for as a Christmas gift.

I remember getting weary as I was tired, but that moment helped me understand how much Christmas meant to them. They were simply too excited to go back to sleep."

This story reflects the magic of Christmas, the anticipation, and the pure joy it brings to children. As adults, it's easy to forget the enchanting Christmas feelings that bubbled within us when we were kids. Today's children all around the world are experiencing those same emotions right now. The same longing, the same anticipation, the same hopes. But many of our sponsored children also carry a sense of deep anxiety:"What if Santa can't find them? Will he come at all, what if there's winter but no Christmas?"

Now, you have the chance to play the role of Santa and give these children an unforgettable Christmas. A Christmas gift from you provides them with so much more than just its contents: the anticipation as they wait, the excitement when your gift arrives, and the joy when they see what they've received. The family togetherness in that moment. The feeling of being seen and a delightful Christmas memory to cherish.

There's no reason to hesitate, right? Of course, we should give these children a truly wonderful Christmas to remember! Disclaimer: Some of the gifts you can give are perhaps untraditional. Lets just say, who gives a child food as a present, really? Well, we do when they have none, and we encourage you do it too! With this in mind,

I'm excited to announce that Star of Hope's Web Shop and Christmas Catalog are coming soon! In our web shop, you'll find a variety of meaningful gifts that you can purchase to bring joy to children in need. These gifts go beyond the material and make a difference in their lives. Whether you've been a generous donor in the past or are considering supporting our cause for the first time, we encourage you to be on the lookout for our web shop and Christmas catalog, as they will be your gateway to creating unforgettable Christmas memories for children worldwide.

Thank you for your continued support and the difference you make in the lives of so many. Together, we can spread love, joy, and the true spirit of Christmas to those who need it most.


Thank you and rich blessings,

Mark Presson - CEO Star of Hope

Tony Boursiquot, the dedicated field manager of the Star of Hope in Haiti, shares a grim update on the current situation:

In the wake of heavy rains, low-lying areas have been submerged, mercilessly carrying away the homes and personal belongings of countless families. Most of these houses, constructed from straw and clay, were torn apart. The devastation is even worse in the mountainous regions, where torrents of water have ruthlessly swept away houses, destroyed crops, and led to the disappearance of livestock. The aftermath of this catastrophe has left homes and farms completely ravaged.

While our school buildings have miraculously survived, six out of our seven villages have been severely affected: Boyer, Rigaud, Dano, Hesse, Bois Negresse, and Marigot. Although the schools remain intact, many children have lost their homes and everything they possessed. Additionally, farmers have suffered immense losses with the destruction of crops and private food gardens, exacerbating the issue of food insecurity in the region.

Adding to the distress, on June 5, a magnitude 4.9 earthquake struck the southern part of the country, resulting in building collapses, injuries, and loss of life. Fortunately, Hoppets Stjärna's project was not directly affected, but the earthquake deepened the crisis and intensified the competition for already scarce resources in the country.

Tony expresses grave concern over the current situation: "With roads and bridges washed away, both people and goods are unable to reach their destinations. Regardless of their location in the country, the food shortage will soon become critical." This dire circumstance poses a significant threat to the entire nation of Haiti, including our vulnerable children.

Furthermore, Tony informs us that following the floods, strong winds have transformed the mud into hardened clay, further delaying road repairs. He pauses with a heavy sigh, revealing the heartbreaking news that the children, who are already living in poverty, eagerly await the summer season when they can rely on avocados and mangoes for sustenance. Regrettably, 80 to 90 percent of these crops have been lost, they fell to the ground in the storm and the wind and are now decaying. The children bear the weight of this knowledge with profound sadness.

Tony predicts a rapid surge in food prices, potentially doubling or even quadrupling, as commercial activities remain disrupted in the region.
