It is with great joy to announce that Operation Hope has taken a momentus step and merged with Compelled By Love.
This means you now have the opportunity to partner with something even bigger, as we expand our reach to help more people, in more countries.
Our values have always framed how we work and operate, and it is these values that have led us to make this exciting decision to merge with Compelled By Love.
Change is not new for Operation Hope. We have had many organisational changes through the years including changing our name. However this change is the most significant.
Operation Hope has functioned with a volunteer board, only one volunteer staff and many other volunteers through the years. However, the ability to grow and deepen our partnerships and work has been limited by both our size and capacity. Not wanting to compromise what has been built over the last 87 years, we felt the need to find a solution that was more sustainable for the future; a solution that would help continue our work where partnership and collaboration was key.
The merge with Compelled By Love solidifies this search. Compelled By Love not only share a similar philosophy, mission and vision with Operation Hope but our values are also very aligned. So, after many conversations, meetings and prayer, Operation Hope merged with Compelled By Love at the start of July 2021.
As part of our work both local and overseas, Operation Hope has been privileged to be part of many people’s stories and for this we are truly thankful. Our impact is your impact, so we are grateful that you have journeyed with us. To learn more about our history and impact please click here.
This exciting new phase will ensure our 87-year legacy that was started by Shelton Schokman Snr in Sri Lanka will continue, that our resources will be shared and maximised, that our work will be more efficient and as a result, our impact increased.
