Project Hannah’s ministry in southern Africa is reaching women in Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe. Project Hannah women help others know and experience God’s love and truths so that he can transform their lives.
Many of the women of southern Africa struggle to provide for their families, and their husbands have mistresses or multiple wives. The number of women in this region with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, is the highest in the world. Many also suffer from the lack of clean water, electricity, and proper sanitation. Unemployment combined with lack of education and training keep them in the grip of poverty.
Besides caring for their children and homes, many women work their small gardens or sell goods on the street. However, at the end of most days, they do not earn enough for a meal to feed their families. When they reach home, many of them are victims of domestic violence (verbal and physical) from their husbands. Thousands of rapes (affecting infants, children, teenagers, women, and the elderly) are underreported and rarely prosecuted.
In the midst of many difficulties, Project Hannah prayer groups take hope and spiritual guidance to the disabled, uneducated, widows, prisoners, orphans, the poor, elderly, and sick. Dignity is restored, families are reunited, and prisoners are spiritually set free.
Project Hannah members are enthusiastically visiting churches, women’s organizations, and communities inviting others to join the worldwide prayer movement. They desire to get Women of Hope on the air in as many local languages as possible so that more women can receive practical advice on health and relationships and receive encouragement from God’s Word. Please pray that the funds would be available to support the ministries these women are working so hard to develop.
