At Open Heart, we aim to rebuild hope where it’s been damaged or lost. We work with those in need, those who are underprivileged, and those who are underserved to rebuild and restructure. Our focus lies on community efforts, including small-scale construction protects, shelter, food aid, community awareness, and educational opportunities. We firmly believe it takes a village to raise a child, and if you work on creating the most well equipped society you can, so many problems simply work themselves out.
WHERE THERE ARE PEOPLE IN NEED, WE’LL BE THERE LENDING A HAND, A SMILE, AND AN ENCOURAGING WORD.
