Legacy of Love

Honour Roll

Inspired by Supporters Who Have Left a Legacy of Love

Every year, 10% of contributions received by Hope and Healing International come from the legacy gifts that supporters have generously left behind in their Wills.

Sometimes we have the privilege of hearing their stories. Who they were. What mattered to them. What they valued in their lives. What they accomplished during their lifetimes.

And, why they left a legacy gift behind in their Wills to Hope and Healing International.

Their lives counted – they made a difference and their Legacy of Love is impacting generations to come.

We are honouring the following people, especially for the footprint of love they have left for children and families who can now see, hear, play, go to school or work… and thrive because of what these men and women have done for them.

What is Hope and Healing International’s Policy on Recognition of Estate Gifts?

Each year, our Legacy Honour Roll recognizes the beautiful generosity of those who have left a Legacy of Love to Hope and Healing International in their Wills. We do this only after death and once the estate gift has been received.

They Deserve Honour

We honour and celebrate the 55 men and women who gave a gift through their Wills in 2019. These generous people put $2 million of world-changing love into action. Their love will continue to be felt by children and families today, tomorrow, and for years to come.

Their gifts provided:

  • Disability-preventing care to children and families
  • Miracle of sight eye surgeries to moms and dads
  • Access to safe, clean and health-protecting water
  • Livelihood and training offering hope for the whole family

That’s enough to:

  • restore the sight of 15,286 people. Moms and dads will be able to see their children and earn a living.
  • give 1,655 children leg-straightening, eye-opening, heart-rejoicing medical care.

We’re inspired and humbled by the following people and their love-in-action:
