Independence Renewable Energy is very proud to announce our support of Ryan Bedford and Convoy of Hope. Revenue based contributions will be made to this great cause monthly.
Convoy of Hope is a “faith-based, nonprofit organization with a driving passion to feed the world through children’s feeding initiatives, community outreaches and disaster response. It is an international, humanitarian relief organization strategically based in Springfield, Missouri – the crossroads of America”.
The Donaldson family founded Convoy of Hope in 1994, as a result of all the love and support they received in 1969 when their father, Harold a truck driver, was killed by a drunk driver. There are more than 70 million people who have been served world-wide by Convoy of Hope. The organization works through churches, businesses, government agencies and other nonprofits to provide help and hope to those who are impoverished, hungry and hurting.
CONVOY OF HOPE MISSION
Convoy of Hope is able to perform their services by concentrating on:
Each year — in dozens of communities throughout the nation — guests of honor receive free groceries, health and dental screenings, haircuts, family portraits, hot meals, job-placement assistance and much more at our signature events.
We partner, resource and empower rural churches through training, mentoring and coaching so they can enhance their presence in their communities. The strategy works best when church leaders partner with community leaders and stakeholders.
Nearly 150,000 children in 10 nations are being fed nutritious meals by us. The food opens doors for education, clean water, a sense of hope and much more. Currently, we are feeding children in the Philippines, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Haiti, Kenya, Ethiopia, Guatemala, South Africa and Tanzania.
Impoverished farmers and families are equipped with the skills, tools and seeds to produce life-sustaining crops through the agricultural work we conduct throughout the world. Each year, tens of thousands of meals are harvested for our children’s feeding work and income is generated for farmers.
Consistently among the first to respond to disasters throughout the world. We are highly regarded for our scalable distribution model, Disaster Response teams, six international warehouses and Mobile Command Center.
We empower like-minded organizations, who are doing good work among the poor and suffering in their communities. This is accomplished by providing such friends with food, water, supplies and much more.
