Convoy of Hope Europe: Alik’s story

Alik is an inspiration. As a child, he lost the use of both legs from disease and learned to walk on his hands, dragging his legs behind. But this didn’t stop him from attending a Convoy of Hope Europe event in Glinjeni three years ago.

Since then the COHEU team has stayed in close contact with Alik. They provided him with new furniture and renovated and cleaned his home and property. He was also given a modified bike that he pedals with his hands. Thanks to the bike, Alik is finally able to transport himself independently for the first time in his life.

Trees for Sarah

In April, 19-year-old Sarah Bryhan traveled to Haiti with a Convoy of Hope Compassion Team. Sarah and fellow students from Bellevue Christian Center in Nebraska served in a variety of roles during their time which included working with children, packing food at the warehouse and planting trees.

Deforestation is a major issue in Haiti, so part of the group’s goal was to work on a large scale reforestation project. Sarah was drawn to this project and quickly developed a heart for Haiti and the people she served.

Just days after she returned home from her trip, Sarah was killed in a car accident. Because of her passion for Haiti, her family and friends came together to set up a memorial fund that will allow Convoy of Hope to continue to plant more trees.

“When she got back from Haiti, she had such a bright face and big eyes when she talked about her work there,” says Serina Bullington, Sarah’s mother. “We felt a great way to honor Sarah would be to raise money to plant fruit trees for future Haitian generations.”

They have already raised more than $6,900, which will allow future teams to not only plant fruit trees during future trips, but also honor Sarah’s memory. Sarah’s parents plan to visit Haiti in 2015.

Convoy of Hope Partners with MSCA to Feed More than 120,000 in Orange County

Convoy of Hope recently delivered food and supplies to Costa Mesa, Calif., based Share Our Selves (SOS) for distribution to the hungry and homeless of Orange County.

Mechanical Service Contractors of America (MSCA) employees and volunteers received and processed the delivery on behalf of SOS. MSCA employees and volunteers filled bags with food that will be distributed at the SOS Food Pantry, assembled hygiene kits and wrote messages of hope to those receiving assistance.

MSCA 2

“We are thrilled to partner with Convoy of Hope and MSCA,” says Vanessa Ontiveros, facilities manager for SOS. “Their support, hard work and generous donation of grocery items will help SOS provide food and assistance to an average of 275 individuals a day. As we prepare for the increased demand during the holiday season, we are most appreciative of this tremendous donation.”

MSCA was in the Orange County area for their 2014 Annual Conference. Convoy of Hope shipped the tractor-trailer load of supplies from its World Distribution Center in Springfield, Mo., and United Rentals donated a forklift to assist with the event.
