We are currently fundraising to purchase a piece of property in El Salvador to build a new school, medical clinic and community health center.

This organization is led by a dedicated visionary who is answering the call to empower people to rise above the oppression of poverty. My dear friend, Rev. Diane McGehee, knows that we are always stronger as a team. I have had the honor of supporting her effort as a prayer partner from the beginning. Under her guidance children in the Philippines, El Salvador and Ethiopia are able to learn with full bellies and necessary nutrition. Young adults achieve their dream of college through micro-loans assisting in small business start-ups. Most importantly, people reclaim their self-worth and dignity by knowing someone cares about them and believes they are a valued child of God.

TOGETHER IN HOPE is extending care to needy in the Philippines, El Salvador and Ethiopia through many ways. My church is collecting used eye glasses and personal dental & hygiene supplies to help with the medical mission in El Salvador. Founder Rev. Diane McGee is an amazing woman of God who has a passion for responding to those in poverty by building relationships and teaching them to be self-sufficient. Focusing on food programs, education and self-care, Together in Hope is making a difference by building co-operative efforts.

We thank God for Together In Hope and all the people behind it for all the help they have extended specially to the children of Malis, Guiguinto in Bulacan a province in the Philippines.
Through their efforts, we are able to continue feeding the body, mind and spirits of the poor children in this community.
Their regular annual visit to the area is a big encouragement and inspiration to the people there because they feel God's love and care through them.

I have had the pleasure of working as the Medical Liaison with Together In Hope and Board member. TIH has raised money to assist with tsunami families to rebuild after devastating loss in 2013 in the Philippines. The educational and health screening that families in San Savador El Salvador was the first in the country in 2012 giving medical care resources to needed communities.

Together in Hope has helped many people in El Salvador. That touches my heart because that is where I was born and it is so sad that crime is taking over such a beautiful country. Together in Hope truly provides people with "hope" to live in such horrible conditions. Blessings to all the people involved in the organization for helping so many in need.

I was very fortunate for the opportunity to travel with Together in Hope this summer. Our medical mission trip was to El Salvador, and I can honestly say it has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life.
We served around 700 individuals in need of medical and dental services and also had the opportunity to do lots of fun activities with the children. It was wonderful to see the patients walk out and pick up their prescriptions from our own mobile pharmacy after seeing the doctors.

The families we served benefited greatly but I felt I benefited from the so much as well. They transmit hope, strength, unity and love for life and one another. I also met new friends with pure hearts Spending a whole week with such caring individuals was a tremendous blessing for me as well.

TIH staff/coordinators and volunteers are clearly passionate about the mission.. I definitely look forward to joining them on another mission trip.

Having watched..Youth Release..project grow from its infancy in Dublin to its dream of building a youth centre for the poorest of children living on the streets of Ethiopia,its been a fantastic achievement.Having seeing the passion and commitment of the volunteers,the struggle trying to fund raiseto help these kids in Ethiopia.What i like about the project is that all monies raised go directly to the project ,without costs been absorbed by administration. (including volunteers paying their own travel costs etc ..).The impact on the lives of these children due to Youth Release is imense as these kids previously had no future,now they have a youth centre offering all different kind of programs and its giving the kids some hope in their lives..Youth Release is a fantastic organisation and has changed kids lives and given them light at the end of the tunnel.One of the main things to keep this project up and running is fund raising,and donations.At this end its terific to see an organisation like ..Together in Hope..supporting Youth Release.Keep up the good work. D.P.

Thank you so much to Together in hope for supporting our new micro credit program at the Youth Release youth center. Thanks to this organization we are able to support 50 parents and caregivers through micro credit loans and in turn they will be able to support their children's education, and feed their children. Thank you for making this possible.
