Susan Correa, a fashion entrepreneur in New York City has launched a clothing line and committed a portion of the proceeds from every garment sold to support HOPE ww  Children’s Nutritional Optimization Program in Central America. At HOPE  worldwide , our volunteers, donors and business partners are as unique and diverse as the families we serve. We are blessed to have passionate people engaging in many powerful ways. Susan Correa, fashion entrepreneur, philanthropist and member of the New York City Church of Christ, is shaking up the children's fashion industry with a sustainable business model and a compassionate bottom line.

In 2014, in an effort to make a better business model, Susan launched “Empower”, a school lunch program for undernourished children in India. For every purchase from her cooper & ella clothing line, Susan committed to provide a hot, nutritious meal. What started as a simple act of compassion ended up as a contribution of 186,000 meals for children attending a school operated by HOPE  foundation  India. Like most successful entrepreneurs, this was only the first step in her passionate mission to do business better.

In January 2017, Susan launched her new fashion line, art & eden. This new children's clothing line is the result of a two-year process for Susan as she followed her dream to create clothing that is better for the planet, better for the people who make them and better for the people who wear them. This time, a portion of every garment sold will benefit HOPE ww’s  Children’s Nutritional Optimization Program in Central America.

As a part of the HOPE  worldwide  Community Service Brigades, the Nutritional Optimization Program will help children with health challenges feel better, focus better and develop better during their most formative years. Susan’s business has committed to donate 7,000 doses of albendazole to cure 3,500 kids from stomach parasites and 1 million multivitamins to help kids rebuild and maintain health. Improved nutrition gives each child the opportunity to reach their full potential height experience healthy physical brain development and fully mature in their emotional and mental health.

We are so proud to have business partners like Susan as we work together to serve those in need. The fashion industry is taking note of this inspiring social enterprise. Susan’s line and our partnership have been featured on the cover of Smallish Magazine as well as covered by Redbook Magazine, fashion blogs and other industry publications ( www.artandeden.com/blogs/press ).

On October 4, 2016, Hurricane Matthew delivered a devastating blow to Haiti. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian affairs (OCHA), the storm took the lives of 1,000 people and displaced 175,500 residents. HOPE Worldwide immediately released $5,000 aimed at providing life-saving aid for members of our partner churches, their families and their communities. Charles Ham, H ww  International Disaster Response Coordinator, and Wade Cook, H ww  Vice President of U.S. Programs, were soon on the ground assessing the situation and formulating an effective and sustainable recovery plan. Part of that was an appeal for funds, and we were humbled by the response. Over the Christmas holidays, HOPE ww  friends and partners rallied support to raise just over $210,000. Our sincere appreciation cannot be adequately expressed in words.

HOPE ww  will be repairing 44 houses at an average cost of $2,500 each. The work will focus on making homes safer and stronger to withstand future disasters.

Thank you for supporting HOPE  worldwide  as we work with refugees around the world. In the wake of the growing refugee crisis, we strive to do all we can to help families and communities displaced by tragedy. Your gifts allow us to provide food, clothing, supplies and love to thousands without a home.

Millions of people have now traveled 100's of miles to flee violence and civil war. They have little more than the clothes on their back. Their lives will never be the same. The political and social implications of the current refugee crisis are complex. But our mission is to compassionately serve those in need, regardless of background or affiliation. We are partnering with churches and local organizations to provide basic supplies and services to refugee families. On the “wishlist” below, you will find a few specific supplies needed today. Purchase these items online and they will be sent to the family in need!

Since 2010, the HOPE   worldwide   Community Service Brigades have brought medical relief to thousands of children suffering from the debilitating impact of poverty. We are excited to announce that on the 3rd annual CSB in El Salvador this November ( click here to see how many were helped ), we launched the "Nutrition Optimization Program" sponsored by our new partner, art & eden. Together with Susan Correa, founder and CEO of art & eden, we are beginning a journey towards providing anti-parasite medicine and a one-year supply of multivitamins to every child we treat. This equates to 1 million vitamins in just the first year alone! The essential anti-parasite medicine, Albendazole, coupled with a daily multivitamin supplement, combats the ill-effects of a severely nutrient-deficient diet and helps restore normal, healthy childhood development. We look forward to a brighter, healthier future for the children of Central America!
