I truly want everyone to know how amazing Operation of Hope has been for many years changing lives for the better with the sincere loving care, concern and happiness they have forwarded to the patients in their care. I had my own life changing experience by meeting one of Operation of Hope's recipients by the name of "Blessing". One can view his wonderful life change through Operation of Hope website. Also in the 3 years our Middle School has raised enough funds to afford 20 surgeries for not only children but for adults also. Please view Operation of Hope website, it will change your HEART forever......it did mine! :)

I first heard of "Operation of Hope" while watching a report on CNN. I consider that what they do is very practical, since it is clear that many people benefit from their work, compared to other nonprofit organizations that just collect money and the money may never reach the intended recipients. "Operation of Hope" does not try to take on too much, meaning that they are actually able to accomplish more than others who attempt to help everyone all at the same time.

Operation of Hope is a wonderful organization that changes children's lives by correcting physical problems. The children are able to eat and speak better and feel better about themselves. For five years my sister and I have knitted infant hats that are sold in six boutiques throughout the USA.. We give the money we earn to Operation of Hope. There is love in every stitch
