Harvest of Hope HIV Centre is a children's ministry that addresses the needs of the impoverished within an outer province of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The centre is Christ focussed, staffed by Christians and nurses to reach out to a village of over 500 people. Many in this area are HIV infected and no medical support or NGO's are currently present. People often turn to superstitious remedies for treating illness and disease. Often these remedies cause more harm than good.
Harvest of Hope HIV Centre has two purposes. Firstly, to establish relationships with the village community through the free administration of modern medical procedures, schooling and the provision of nourishing daily meals, showing faith through good deeds (Matt. 5:16, Jas. 2:16, Eph. 2:10). Secondly to show the love of Jesus Christ to those that have not heard nor know the good news.
The rehabilitation center is to be rurally located approximately one to two hours from the Perth CBD. This is to be a farm style property of twenty plus acres of usable agricultural land. The property will be able to accommodate up to fifty residents and staff in segregated dorms and single room accommodation.
The facility will be purpose built utilizing sustainable energy methods and constructed from recycled environmentally friendly products. The purpose of this is to further showcase the facility's construction as an energy efficient rehabilitation centre that additionally cultivates organic produce.
