About Us 关于我们

What We Do我们的使命

The PingYu Home of Hope is one of a very few foreign-run orphanages in China and the third orphanage started by the Next Towns Foundations Inc in China. Through a remarkable series of events we have been given the opportunity to love and care for the homeless children in PingYu China. Currently PingYu has over 1000 registered orphans that need help.
“平舆希望之家”是中国境内少数几个有外国人创办的孤儿院。也是Next Towns基金在中国的第三个孤儿院。尽管无数多的关心和爱已经被送到了平舆无家可归的孩子这里,但是目前来说平舆登记在册的孤儿还有1000余人需要帮助。

Who we are介绍我们自己


We are Ben and Michelle Godard. we have three sons, (pictured from youngest to oldest) Tyler, Eli and Jaxin. We moved to Gongyi China in February 2007 volunteering with the Home of Hope orphanage for three years.我们是本和米歇尔,我们有三个儿子(照片从左到右):泰勒,依赖和杰克森。我们再2007年搬到了中国的巩义做“希望之家”的志愿者有三年之久。 DSC_0060We were at church 2 years prior to our move here, where a couple shared about there work with helping the orphans in China. Right then we knew that God wanted us to do the same work, “Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” (Psalms 82:3-4).
“当为贫寒的人和孤儿伸冤。当为困苦和穷乏的人施行公义。拯救软弱穷乏的人,救他们脱离恶人的手。” Psalms 82:3-4
We moved to Pingyu China on February 1st 2010 to finish the construction at our building so the children could arrive to a happy home full of love and joy. On March 1st we opened with 9 children ranging in age from 5 to 8 years old.
