"Rosella Ridings has been a long-time friend and supporter of Metro World Child. Her many years of ministry experience have uniquely qualified her to work with children and partner with people and ministries of like-mind. Through her tireless work at Metro Hope for Kids, she has built bridges and connected people to the work we are doing around the world, and specifically in New York City. I’m so grateful for her continuous efforts to share with others and encourage them to get involved. I’ve known Rosella and her family for years, and I know she doesn’t give up on the things she believes in. Thanks Rosella, for believing in Metro, and believing in me."

He is a well-known speaker, author, pastor and advocate for poor, inner city children all over the world.

(Metro Hope For Kids is pleased  to partner with Pastor Bill Wilson and Metro World Child to make a differencer and give hope to children around the world.)

" It has been my privilege to have known Rosella Ridings for many years.  She has always lived a life of impeccable integrity.  Being reared in a pastor's home and then married to a pastor, the late Dr. Howard Ridings has given her a vast and rich background of experience in all fields of ministry.


Using her extraordinary gift of organization, Rosella, an ordained minister,   has been involved in pastoral ministry, foreign and local, organization of conferences on all levels, support role of orphanages, and many too numerous to mention - and the latest major project is joining the founding of Metro Hope for Kids and working with Bill Wilson in New York City.


Rosella has always had a heart for changing the lives of children.  Any investment in Metro Hope for Kids is a worthwhile investment and it is my honor to endorse this ministry."

The mission of Metro Hope For Kids is to make a difference in the lives of the children being served through partnering with Metro World Child, Brooklyn, NY, and Wondang-Ki Orphanage, Nagaland, India. One hundred percent of the funds contributed go directly to the projects. I heartily recommend these projects that are under the capable direction of Rosella Ridings. Both are deserving of support.
