"The Kumasi Hope Center will strive to develop innovative pilot projects to target prevention, early detection, health promotion and data collection in the region and will implement educational opportunities to train, retain and appropriately utilize clinicians and nurses.
By addressing such critical needs, the Center will not only help many individuals to regain their health and hope in the future, but will also stand as a model of effective health care intervention in Africa."

"Today children are assailed from every side! Any person or organization such as 'hopeXchange' involved in supporting education of youngsters is to be highly commended and congratulated. Let us always remember that the child is the guarantor of the future of humanity."

"Our hope is in our children.  If we do not take care of their basic physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs, how will they be able to meet and overcome the challenges that await all of us in the future? Having worked with the founders of hopeXchange, I know that through this organization, they are committed to assisting our children in the developing world.  Let's help!"
COL Julie Bentz PhD,

"The Kumasi Hope Center will be of benefit to patients from all the West Africa sub-region.

1. $8 billion were spent in 1998 on Cosmetics in the United States. $6 billions would provide basic education for all.

2. During the same year more than $11 billion were spent on ice cream in Europe. The estimated cost of water and sanitation supply for all people in developing countries is $9 billion.

3. For the 1.9 billion children from the developing world, there are:
- 640 million without adequate shelter (1 in 3)
- 400 million with no access to safe water (1 in 5)
- 270 million with no access to health services (1 in 7)

4. 2.2 million children die each year because they are not immunized


The continuation of this suffering and loss of life contravenes the natural human instinct to help in times of disaster. Imagine the horror of the world if a major earthquake were to occur and people stood by and watched without assisting the survivors! Yet every day, the equivalent of a major earthquake killing over 30,000 young children occurs to a disturbingly muted response. They die quietly in some of the poorest villages on earth, far removed from the scrutiny and the conscience of the world. Being meek and weak in life makes these dying multitudes even more invisible in death.
(UNICEF, Progress of Nations 2000)
