History

Giving Children Hope was founded in 1993 by John Ditty and Juliana Reasor, who committed their lives to helping the world's most disadvantaged children after being exposed to extreme poverty while adopting their son in Russia. At that time Russia was experiencing a devastating famine and many people were struggling to survive. In addition to the famine, these people were lacking basic medical necessities to treat minor injuries or illnesses that might only need a simple medicine to cure. John and Juliana were touched by the great needs of these children and began helping by delivering donated medicines, medical supplies and equipment to some of the most economically impacted parts of the world. Today, 26 years later, thanks to our family of donors, Giving Children Hope is still sending supplies to some of the worlds most poverty-stricken nations and will continue to do so. However, with a closer look at children living in low-income communities in the United States, it became obvious that serving families was a necessary part of serving children. Giving Children Hope's vision grew to include local families and now provides them with immediate assistance in basic needs and health care.
