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.

We just received an update from Daniel & Monica in South Sudan!! Terribly exciting πŸ˜€

This video shows the last wool bale of clothing unloaded and being put into the storage space, as they explained in their email update to us:
"It’s the wet season here too now so we were racing the clock as we unloaded and built the roof [of the building where everything was being stored] at the same time. As we put in the last item (a huge bale of clothing that was twice the size of the others and seemed to weigh a tonne) the heavens opened and it poured. We had only just finished putting the roof on a few minutes earlier."

Despite challenges such as a 40 day delay, armed escorts and truck design making unloading difficult, as Daniel & Monica said "There were enough complications on the journey to write a book about but praise God nothing is impossible with Him."

The next part of their journey is sorting, distribution and use, so please pray for Daniel & Monica, and everyone helping them with this project!

Hey everyone! Long time, no speak!
Just thought we'd let you know that we are slowly opening up again, though deliveries are still by appointment only.

However, we have decided to have our
July Working Bee on Saturday, 18th of July 2020! YAY!

We will be open from 9am to 3pm for volunteers to come and work with us to do come more cleaning up after our move. If you wish to deliver something, it is still by appointment only so we can control how many people are onsite at a time (To organise a delivery, please email moorec@containerofhope.com.au or call 0413 279 753).

Hope to see you there!! <3
