Hope Services
Image
Esther Nidichafa is the founder of Hope Services ministry, which was created in 1994 and serves the poor, orphans, prisoners, handicapped and refugees in Cameroon, West Africa.  There are two arms of this ministry, the first being a multifaceted health care center in the capital of Yaounde.  Over 4000 were treated in 2017; the majority of whom were maternity cases and child services.  A second facility is under construction in Douala, the largest city in Cameroom.  The second arm serves the "least of these", including 4 orphanages which are provided with medical care, educational fees, and supplies. Prisoners are ministered twice a week with Bible studies and fed on a routine basis.  Other services are Economic Empowerment programs and micro loans to "give a hand up and not a hand out" to those who wish to begin their own small business.  All is done in the name of Christ.
