For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.' - Jesus

The Guyana poverty assessment found that an estimated 43 percent of the population fall below the poverty line using data from the recent Living Standards Measurement Survey. Roughly two thirds of the poor, or 29 percent of the total population, can be further classified as being extremely poor, with an expenditure level below that required to purchase a minimum low-cost diet. The majority of Guyana's poor live in rural areas, while extreme poverty is concentrated in the interior regions.  Bags of Hope has been working with the poor in Guyana for close to twenty years.  Over the years, we have conducted health clinics, distributed food and clothing to The Palms (elderly homeless shelter) and orphanages  across the country.

In 2012 and 2013, we distributed flip-flops to the Amerindian community of Orealla. In 2013 (August), we will be distributed love bears and clothing for boys and girls that were carefully made by the seniors of Bradenton Church of the Nazarene, to the very same community.  We are thankful for our supporters who see the need and are ready and willing to help.
