Now that the Hope Centre kids are coming back together at the Centre after having been looked after by others during the time the building work was going on we can begin to put in place some projects which will focus on long term sustainability. Recent donations of a few hundred pounds have made it possible to begin these projects.

Help someone in a Fix - Support Fix-A-Fix
Purpose:The Fix-a-Fix fund has been set up to help Mission International channel resources to situations where non-ring-fenced funds are required. Mission International projects are supported by very generous donors whose funds are 'ring-fenced' i.e. they must be used for the purpose for which they are given. However there are times when small units of funding are required outside of the regular funding streams, Fix-a-Fix is set up for this reason. Now when an individual, a family or a community group requires a grant of up to £1000 for a small one-off project, then funds can be made available to them. Support Fix-a-Fix: If you can support this venture providing a small capital grant in a needy area then please either use the giving links at the top right of this page or click on the Fix-a-Fix logo below. Contact: If you would like to discuss Fix-a-Fix with Mission International please get in touch via the following email firstname.lastname@example.org

Mission International is a charity registered in Scotland - Number SC038645
Married to Marie, with 4 children and two dogs. Was asked in 1989 to become 'an ambassador for the poor' and have been trying to do that ever since. Today the mission burns in my bones more strongly than it did at the start. There are times however, when I see the way that our world, me included, treats the poor, that I despair of the future both short and long term, if there is any long term left for this ailing planet. There are many programmes, projects and initiatives taking place around the world that are intended to bring relief to the poor however the boffins will tell us that Africa in particular is getting poorer and conditions are getting worse. The inevitable press attention when Sir Bob, Midge Ure and others made efforts to raise the profile of the plight of the poor and it makes no lasting difference we may have to ask the question how then we will see positive and lasting change brought about. The blisteringly rich dip their hands in their pockets and suggest that by some stoke of good fortune their efforts have changed things appreciably; frankly until the selfish heart is changed then no positive long-term change can happen.
