About Hope's Cry

In 2012, with a desire to begin ongoing mentor-mission work, Todd and Michelle Allen traveled to Uganda for the first time. Their hearts broke as they saw the incredible need and how few there were to meet it. They fell in love with the people of Uganda and felt God calling them to meet that need.

In 2013, they established Hope’s Cry International. Their ministry began with simply distributing humanitarian aid, (water filtration systems, seeds, clothing, etc…) and evangelism. However, the vision soon grew beyond anyone’s expectations.

HCI has now placed full-time missionaries on the field in Uganda to start new initiatives and continue the work that has been started. We are currently expanding into new regions as we continue to preach the Gospel in Africa. Our next ministry goal is to establish a ministry presence among the unreached Karamajong people, of whom less than 5% are born again believers.

We have also pioneered the Straightway Program,  in an effort to keep young girls in school and reduce their risk of being victimized by human traffickers. This incredible program has already been hugely successful and we are expanding into more areas soon.

Our Heart

Hope’s Cry International exists to raise up a Generation of Hope in Uganda. Our programs are designed to provide immediate relief from the crushing effects of poverty and to train and mentor others to share the hope we offer through education, healthcare and the preaching of the Gospel.

Our Mission

Our goal of transforming lives through hope is not something we can achieve ourselves. We need people who catch the vision and are willing to pour themselves into the work we have begun. Each year we take multiple short-term mission teams to assist us in our work. God has blessed us with many amazing partners in this ministry but there is still so much work to be done. If you would like to join the work in Uganda, please prayerfully consider getting in touch with us.

Bringing Hope to Uganda

To Reach A Village

It Takes A Village

Every day, thousands of children struggle to survive in the worst of conditions, without hope for a better tomorrow. Hope’s Cry works diligently to provide safety and education for orphaned and at-risk children. Our vision is to raise up an entire generation who grow up never knowing what life is like without hope.

Digging Wells

Clean Water For Life

HCI has distributed hundred of water filtration systems to people in remote villages who do not have access to clean water. In 2016, we also began an initiative to dig wells in villages with limited access to any water source at all. These wells provide a lifetime of clean, life-giving water for hundreds of families.

Medical Clinics

Healing With Hope

Every year we bring a medical team to work in local hospitals, offering free surgeries to those who can not afford the care they desperately need. Our medical teams also participate in Village Clinic programs helping to diagnose basic ailments and distribute medicine for malaria, typhoid, and other diseases.
