Who We Are
Delivering tailor made aid to the South Sudanese
Projects Delivering Hope is a Christian charity founded in 2018 by three friends with a deeply felt concern for the people of South Sudan, and a desire to put their faith into action in practical ways
Our focus is to establish and deliver time and cost bound projects.
The projects provide short term aid to help the South Sudanese support themselves in the long term. This includes practical items such as tarpaulins to provide shelter and bread ovens to enable thriving businesses. We run training courses and offer microfinance to small start-up businesses through our partner organisation, Five Talents.
We deliver these projects through local partners that we know and trust from our previous work in South Sudan, particularly the Anglican Church as they work in their local communities to bring relief.
