With a mission of rescuing children from the grip of poverty, Fort Worth-based Manna Worldwide operates across the globe, aiding children in 39 countries. The organization is fueled by a desire to fight disease, poverty, illiteracy, and spiritual emptiness, and supports several programs to meet the needs of the world’s children.
Manna’s Water for Life program provides clean water to those who would otherwise go without it, and Manna Freedom focuses on fighting human trafficking around the world.
Current projects include a nutrition center in Lebanon to support Syrian refugees, a medical project in Russia, an orphanage in Guatemala, schools in Honduras and the Philippines, and many more.
Manna sponsors trips each year in partnership with local churches to provide assistance to its projects, while giving travelers of all ages a taste of what life is like for those less fortunate around the world.
