Give A Gift That Will Have A Lasting Impact

1 in 5 people on earth struggle with neglected tropical diseases like leprosy.

These diseases cause disabilities and create a cycle of extreme poverty.

Together, we can restore health and restore lives.

Who Are We?

Effect Hope is a Canadian Christian global health organization. Our programs address wellness in a holistic way, including physical health, mental health, justice and breaking cycles of poverty. Together with our partners, we serve people of all faiths and no faith.

We believe that everyone deserves good health and a life of dignity. That’s why we have been serving people around the world for more than 130 years.

What We Do
We partner with other global health organizations, local governments and community leaders to strengthen healthcare systems across Africa and Asia. Together, we provide resources and develop sustainable programs that help eliminate disease and disability, while supporting self-sufficiency in the communities that we serve.
The Connection Between Disease and Poverty
Infectious diseases, such as leprosy are both the cause and the consequence of poverty. People who live in regions with poor sanitation and little access to healthcare are highly at risk of serious illness. Once infected, a person may lose not only their health, but also their ability to earn an income. This loss of income makes it almost impossible to feed their family or educate their children for a better future. The whole family becomes trapped in a cycle of generational poverty. We are committed to changing these circumstances.
