Mission: It is Project HOPE''s mission to achieve sustainable advances in health care around the world by implementing health education programs, conducting health policy research, and providing humanitarian assistance in areas of need; thereby contributing to human dignity, promoting international understanding and enhancing social and economic development. The essence of Project HOPE is teaching; the basis is partnership. Every year HOPE raises approximately $120 million of resources to support programs around the world. Over 90 percent of these resources are spent on programs. Funds are raised from government, multilateral organizations, multinational corporations, private institutions, and the general public. Until recently, fundraising and recruitment of health care professionals has been principally in the U.S., but since 1990, HOPE has developed new operations outside the U.S.with National Boards in the United Kingdom and Germany.

Programs: Although immediate humanitarian assistance is often an element of its activities, Project HOPE always stresses long-term, systemic solutions to health care problems. Programs cover the development of health care facilities and all aspects of education for nurses, doctors, engineers, and managers. Education initiatives include: health promotion, disease prevention, health care in the community, specialist hospital services, biomedical engineering, health care management, and policy. The focus for Project HOPE programs is currently: Africa, The Americas and the Caribbean, Asia and the Middle East,Central Eastern Europe, and Russia Eurasia. HOPE has experience in over 100 countries around the world, and generally conducts programs in more than 35 differnt countries in any one year. To support a program, Project HOPE actively facilitates partnerships between a number of organizations and individuals who make the program a success, combining expertise, both internal and external, to the host country. This may include government departments, health care institutions, health care professionals, and funding organizations. Each program partner agrees to contribute resources and expertise to achieve the designated health outcomes. The specific design and implementation of a program is undertaken by HOPE health care educators working with their host counterparts. Together, they address critical health care needs while educating others about the successful processes and procedures, which can be adopted. Project HOPE's emphasis is on efficient, effective, solutions for the long term. Please refer to the listing in this directory under Project HOPE - The People-to-People Health Foundation for 1999 financial figures. Project HOPE- The People-to-People Health Foundation replaced the name People-to-People Health Foundation as the legal name.

I was honored to serve as a bilingual public health educator and triage nurse in latin America on the USNS Comfort in 2007 AND 2008. I visited seven countries and provided care to thousand of people. The compassioin and kindness I witnessed but moreover was given in doing this important work was life changing. I remember a young man who had suffered a severe brain injury in a motor vehicle accident being brought to our clinic in Guatemala . he had already gone through rehabilitation in Guatemela City but his parent had driven seven hours to see us oping we could give them information on how to further help him. We worked for hours tring to make contacts. We all were so moved by his parents hope in us. Eventually we did make contacts that woud eventually provide him some further treatment back in the capital. I family walked two days from their mountain village to see us about a speciic issue. We did provide care and as they started to leave for the two day walk back to their home the mother turned to me and gave me a big hug.. She said thank ou God bless you in Spanish and it was so heartfelt i cried when she left. The mothers and childen, all who came to us demonstrated such courage and such strength. I was honored to be there. It is difficult to describe what it is like to ride into a medical site whee 600 people are waiting for the medical team and as our bus arrives the entire crown breaks into cheering because we have come to help them. Little do they know how mch they give to us. It is about great hope and great faith that hearts and minds come together to share our humanity. That is what the PROJECT HOPE cause is all about.....our shared humanity.

My Name is Annie Javed I am a student . The way you help people through show is really great. I am on a mission which I named ''Love For Humanity''. This missions seems to be very difficult but I believe nothing is impossible. I really wish people of our world stop hating, abusing and cheating each other. Female's should get freedom so that they can freely do any work and study without any fear. Security for people so that they can feel safe. Stop Crimes, Robbery, Terrorism and Jealousy. We all can unite. This small effort will really work if we all unite we can really make this mission possible. Then this world will be a better place to live in. I want to see a smile on everyone's face want to see everyone happy. I want to make a Charity Foundation one day Hope that dream will come true Insha ALLAH.

The Basrah Children's Hospital opened in October 2010. Its focus is caring for children with cancer. Unfortunately, children in Southern Iraq have cancer rates 8 to 10 times higher than children in the West.

The Basrah Children's Hospital - the first new hospital built in Iraq in more than 30 years - is an example of Project HOPE's diligence to make sure the health needs of children are addressed.
