About Us

OUR CORE PRINCIPLES

LOVING THY NEIGHBOUR THROUGH KEY VALUES

ACCOUNTABILITY TO GOD

God has provided the goods and the money for these projects that we are stewards of; thus, we must do our utmost to ensure as much as possible that the container and all its contents go to the intended recipients.

SAS WOLF

We strive to always express Service Above Self for Widows, Orphans and those Less Fortunate.

PAY IT FORWARD

Our projects are continuous and without completion dates, this comes through our belief of choosing to respond to kindness shown to you by being kind to someone else.

THE STORY

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

Founders of Container Of Hope, Christopher and Kerrie, went on a trip to India. In coming home and getting back to work, Kerrie found that her workplace was throwing things away that she thought could be used in India rather than going to landfill. She and Christopher saved the items and stored them in a shipping container, until enough was gathered to ship it there. From this, Christopher began Container Of Hope. Through partnerships with Rotary Donations in Kind, and also Mission World Aid, both with lengthy experience in shipping containers, Container of Hope grew and finally became a registered charity through the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) in November 2015. To date, we have successfully sent 24 containers to people in need in various places worldwide by God’s grace and provision.

YAY, HOW EXCITING! This container is headed for Lira, Uganda and is full of mostly medical equipment from the old RAH which the sponsor, John, managed to source himself with help from Rotary Donations In Kind. It is scheduled to arrive in Mombasa on March 24, and then add another estimated 2-3 weeks for customs clearance and travel to Uganda 🙂 Please keep it in your prayers 🙏 ... See MoreSee Less
