LOUISVILLE, KY January 31, 2013—PrideStaff’s Louisville office is proud to announce they have sponsored an entire orphanage located in Guatemala through the non-profit organization Children’s Hope Chest.
Children’s Hope Chest is a non-profit organization founded in 1994 in response to the devastating need of orphans in Russia following the fall of the Iron Curtain. The organization has since grown to serve orphans throughout Africa, India and Central America. Children’s Hope Chest provides orphans with basic needs – clothing, food, medical services and shelter – but also fills their more compelling need for love, human interaction and care, and future hope.
“Our partnership with Children’s Hope Chest has been an extremely eye-opening, rewarding and spiritual experience,” said Kurt Mishler, Owner PrideStaff Louisville. “We have the opportunity to provide an entire orphanage with the basic needs but also extend the love, hope and opportunity we are blessed with in our own families.”
PrideStaff Louisville’s involvement with Children’s Hope Chest began last year when they sponsored the God Bless the Children orphanage in Guatemala City. “We were looking for a worthy cause in which we could not only contribute monetarily, but also personally visit and lend a helping hand,” continued Mishler. “This year we have two separate groups visiting the orphanage in Guatemala to work directly with the children.”
In lieu of company gifts typically given to clients around the holidays, PrideStaff Louisville informed clients that a monetary donation was made to the orphanage in their name. “The response we received from our clients was overwhelming,” said Mishler. “Many of our clients were so blown away after hearing about the stories of these orphans and the amazing things we are accomplishing that they have pledged to contribute on their own in the coming year. Being a small company of only five people, one of our goals is to help spread the word to others in the Louisville business community that are interested in supporting such a worthy cause.”
God Bless the Children is a refuge in Guatemala City for orphaned children that have endured abandonment, abuse, loss, and family degeneration. Once arriving at their new home, the children discover a sanctuary of love, care, encouragement, compassion, and hope, which is a stark difference from the lives of poverty, neglect, and instability they once knew. Many of the children arrive malnourished and in need of medical attention. The dedicated staff works hard to provide proper nutrition, early childhood intervention, medical care, and a well-rounded education in order to see them thrive and succeed. The children visit a medical clinic at least once per month to ensure they are healthy and developing properly.
Through sponsorship, each child has the chance to thrive physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. This support, prayers, letters, and love give each child the promise of a future and remind them that they have not been forgotten.
