The desperate tears, the hopelessness and despair. Wherever we go there are thousands living in the inner cities of the world still crying out for an answer. Whether they are children in the street, women of the night or men in trouble, the pain of a wasted, hopeless life still hurts.
That’s why “United We Can” was birthed. Its purpose is simple: If we all come together, efforts can be multiplied throughout the world.
Already, United We Can has forged a pathway of hope where there was none before. At-risk groups in cities from Amsterdam to Cape Town, from Panama City to Glasgow, are hearing about how they can be free. We have projects, initiatives and churches in over thirty countries, in six of the seven continents but this is only the beginning.
United We Can has made it possible to support missionaries, open Urban Training Centres, produce creative outreaches and establish church facilities in places like Curacao, Australia, South Africa, Venezuela and Europe. In short, your pledges help bring real change to some of the darkest corners of our region and the world.
It hit me: "I'm 20 and in a rehab"...
Weed wasn't new to me. But whilst working as a labourer getting fast cash in my hands, my workmates introduced me to cocaine. Partying with MDMA, ecstasy, cocaine and weed. There wasn't a limit. Alcohol was a problem too.
I got lazy and before I knew it I couldn't hold down a job. I lost my accommodation. My party friends vanished. Eventually depression set in.
But in September 2017 I joined a recovery programme supported by United We Can called Project67. I’ve now graduated the programme, I'm pursuing a university degree in music and I'm working with other young adults like me.
This has all been possible because of United We Can!
