I’ve seen and experienced a lot of suffering, and I believe that God has given me strength and support so that I can give that same strength and support to others.
Chambersburg, PA (PRWEB) November 11, 2012
In a world ravaged by natural disasters, poverty and sickness, nonprofit charity Open Hearts Open Palms continues to fight for a better tomorrow – and with a newly launched website, the organization hopes to make a bigger impact than ever before. By connecting those with open hearts and the ability to make a difference to Haitian disaster victims and people suffering around the globe, OHOP hopes to rally a global force for change.
James King, founder of Open Hearts Open Palms, views the organization as more than just a charity. For him, it’s a calling. “I was born in Haiti,” says James. “I lost my mother at the age of four. As an adult, I survived cancer and a heart bypass. I’ve been through a lot. I’ve seen and experienced a lot of suffering, and I believe that God has given me strength and support so that I can give that same strength and support to others. That’s why I started Open Hearts Open Palms.”
Founded in 2010, Open Hearts Open Palms began providing relief after the Haitian earthquake killed over 316,000 people, injured over 300,000, orphaned countless children and left over a million Haitians homeless. The organization worked tirelessly to bring food, medicine, shelter and other necessities to Haitian survivors. In the past two years, Open Hearts Open Palms has touched countless hearts and saved lives. Unfortunately, Haiti and its people are still healing.
“The country is still rebuilding, and the people there are trying to rebuild their lives along with it,” says James. “The need remains great and we’re hoping our new website can help us respond to that need at an even deeper level. One day, we hope to gain enough support to open an orphanage and a medical clinic. The launch of the website brings us one step closer to this goal, so of course we’re very excited to reach even more people and save more lives than ever before.”
