ABOUT Hope For Kids
Metro Hope For Kids was founded as a result of Rosella Angel Ridings, the founder, hearing the voice of the Lord saying, "I want you to make a difference in the building at Metro." She responded with, "Yes God. I will be obedient." Pastor Bill Wilson, founder of Metro World Child, gave his full endorsement to her and the team to move forward. A second word from God connected Rosella with Mr. N. Thungdemo Kikon, founder of Wondang-Ki Orphanage, Nagaland, India, saying, "You can do something for the girls in Nagaland." Again, she said, "Yes God, I will be obedient."
We have helped to restore the building in New York to restore the lives of thousands of children around the world. The building is almost complete and has now become Metro World Ministries Center. Our project currently is equipping the free Medical Center which will be located on the first floor of the Center. More about The Center on the Project page.
Weekly Metro World Child ministers to over 200,000 children world-wide and the orphanage gives a home to 24 girls and 3-5 babies. Nineteen babies that were unwanted or abandoned have been given parents at this time. Our goal is to help meet the spiritual as well as physical needs of these children.
Metro Hope For Kids is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity with its headquarters in Lake Mary, (a suburb of Orlando) Florida. One hundred percent of all donations received goes directly to the project. Founded in May 2011 Metro Hope For Kids has seen God perform many miracles for the children.
Our mission is to change possibilities into realities for boys and girls around the world through partnership with Metro World Child, Brooklyn, New York and Wondang-Ki Orphanage, Nagaland, India.
As a partner with Metro World Child and Wondang-Ki Orphanage, our vision is to make a difference in the lives of boys and girls world-wide by working with our partners, Bill Wilson and N. Thungdemo Kikon, helping to meet their needs spiritually, physically, emotionally, academically and preparing them for a brighter future.
Our Advisory Board is made up of men and women who give of their time, talent and finances, to make a difference in the lives of others. Coming from all walks of life they offer a diversity that makes a great team to move forward.
