Started in 1947 by Harlan Popov originally to support Christian’s imprisoned for their faith, our work has increased not only in the number of projects we support but also the countries. Eastern Europe has changed enormously in the last two decades but many peoples lives are still stuck in a medieval era. Day to day developments have passed them by, people with no education or support mechanisms, beaten down by the hard labour and work they have to undertake just to exist. A reality where children of gypsy birth are still discriminated against and have teachers actively discourage them in attending. Places where a wash is waiting, till the summer to go down to the river with your children to bath. People who are imprisoned for their crimes which are often driven by utter despair and poverty and where corruption is so rife that if you can’t pay your way out then they throwaway the key.
Door of Hope exist to try to intervene and help people and communities where others may well pass by. Mothers with HIV, life long prison ministry, human trafficking, educating the marginalised. This is our story and we hope that you, your church or your organisation may consider partnering with us to try to bring justice to unjust situations. We can’t help everyone but we can help some and that is what we are aiming to do.
Thank you all for your love and support – Phil and Diane
