Over the last 7 years, World Impact Network has supported me to get formal accredited education, to equip me to serve others in need in various countries. I could not have done it without WIN. More importantly, the interactions with WIN's founders Peter and Gaby Van Breda have and is still impacting my life to love and pour out for others with the love of God. Because of them, I had the privilege to learn from professors not just of very high standard in their academic achievements but in their characters and sentiments. WIN is doing what they say they are doing: They are impacting the world through people!
After being a donor to WIN and their Food Bank I became a recipient of the good that World Impact Network has done for years. I was laid off from my job and after 18 months of being unemployed, I found myself at the WIN Food Bank. I am so grateful for their kindsness and compassion and the upbeat positive attitude everyone had. Those weekly trips to the food bank made it possible to not have to choose between eating or paying the rent. The Food Bank had a wide range of healthy foods; protein, veggies, grains, even fresh fruit. Never in my wildest imaginings have I pictured being out of work and unable to pay basic living expenses. Thank you WIN for being the helping hand when it was need.

Hopefully in the future WIN will be able to move into a larger building.
