Our ministry is constantly blessed in that we are able to be a part of the greater story of God working in the lives of individuals like Bridgette. Take a few minutes to read her powerful written testimony and celebrate with us the power of God’s grace and redemption.

Psalm 107:2 reads, “Let the redeemed of the LORD tell their story— those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,”


The time has come! Living Hope has officially kicked off its Black Friday campaign to raise $26,000 for the Life Skills Education program! Join us over the next 16 hours as we share more information about the program. Let’s get it started with this brief video from Avril Thomas, General Manager as she shares more information with us.

To donate to the Life Skills and support the life changing work being done by this program, please go to our donate section to give.

Every dollar is meaningful and impactful in the lives of kids in the communities we work.


At Living Hope, we are passionate about changing lives. In order to continue to offer health care to the sick people of our community, we need your help. By purchasing a light for R100, you become a visible reminder that we will are able to provide love and care to the suffering. All proceeds from your light purchase will benefit the Health Care Centre.

Help us give hope by purchasing a light.

By purchasing a light, you will help people in need of receiving dignity, hope, love and care. For every light that is purchased, Living Hope will shine a light at the Health Care Centre in Capri, for the whole month of December. We will switch the lights on at a special lighting ceremony held in our chapel and then celebrate the lives of those we have touched.

So, how do you switch on hope?

Click HERE to order or call 021 784 2800. You can purchase as many lights as you wish. Please help us to switch on hope.

The special lighting ceremony will take place on 2 December 2012 at Living Hope Capri from 18h00 to 20h30. We hope to see you there!

Dear Friend of Living Hope,


Hundreds of dollars have been raised for Living Hope because some of you in the USA are just drinking better coffee every morning… or getting your church or office to drink better coffee.  It would be so easy for more of you to also just drink better coffee and have the hundreds turn into thousands for Living Hope.


The coffee is from our partner, Phoenix Community Coffee, and is a single-sourced Panamanian ranked in the top 1% in the world.  It is grown by mission minded growers who support missionaries in Panama and as you will remember, Phoenix Community Coffee was started by an Atlanta area church, The Phoenix Community of Atlanta. Our Chairman, John Thomas, announced this at the last Partner’s Conference and also encouraged the listeners on the Rick and Bubba radio show to order and drink the coffee the last time he was in the USA .


This month there has been some game changing news relating to the Living Hope coffee offering.  Their customers demanded and they have responded with FREE SHIPPING!  Now with the purchase of 3 bags from shipping is ABSOLUTELY FREE and $3 per bag will come to Living Hope.  You get 3 bags of the best coffee, freshly roasted that week, and Living Hope will receive $9!


The best, and easiest, way to support us is to start a monthly subscription of 3 or more bags per month.  If your home or office is a pot a day kind of place you could easily go through 5 – 7 so 3 – 4 is easily managed in a home or office.


A subscription of 3 bags from would give $9 per month to Living Hope.  That is $108 per year to Living Hope and you have done nothing different than upgrading the coffee you drink.


Please consider a subscription today for your home or office, or just order some pumpkin spice or another of their great offerings for your holiday parties or gifts.


They even have a donate button where you can just give directly to Living Hope if you are not a coffee drinker.


God bless you for your efforts on behalf of Living Hope and those we serve and for considering helping (or continuing to help) through your coffee choice.

It’s almost Spring and we’re looking forward to a beautiful summer. Living Hope is celebrating a Spring Open Day on Saturday, 7th September from 09:00 – 14:00 at our Living Hope Facility in Kommetjie Road Capri.
