mission & vision

No need is too small and no voice is too quiet to be heard. We will devote the time and energy necessary to educate, advocate and feed.

Mission Statement: Bringing Hope to a Starving World

To holistically feed the body, mind and spirit of hungry people around the world, providing hope and relief to those in need due to poverty, malnutrition, famine, drought, flood, war or other natural disaster.

To provide synergy between Donors and Recipient organizations, creating effective and meaningful partnership that will add value to both organizations in achieving their mission goals and becoming a blessing to the community that they are serving.

To finance the provisioning of food and education in poverty stricken and disaster areas, enabling mission organizations to give hope to people living in these areas effectively ministering and changing lives both physically and spiritually.

To show God’s love and share the Gospel values – the truth, the way, and the life with the underprivileged people in this world by serving them.

Vision Statement: To have a world that is free of hunger, thirst and famine

Our aspiration is to have a poverty free world, where food and clean water are readily available to all, thus creating a happier and spiritually rich environment. This is through the elimination of intergenerational poverty through education and sustainable poverty alleviation programs.

Core Values:

Soon after launching Aiding the World’s Children in 2010, we established a set of core values and behavior to be adopted in our ministry in dealing with donors and recipient organizations.


We focus on forming long-term relationship with our donors and recipient organizations. We value trust, integrity, and quality in serving and meeting different needs. We want to give back to the community.


We are in the business to serve. Our confidence comes from our ability to deliver excellent service.
