Houston, TX (June 13, 2023) — A total of 2,300 children will be released from poverty in Jesus’ name because listeners to Hope Media Group’s radio brands WayFM, KSBJ, and Vida Unida decided to come alongside them to assure they have what they need.

During a recent sponsorship drive with Compassion International, listeners pledged to support 2,300 children in poverty, giving them access to health care, nutritious food, training and vocational programs, educational opportunities that complement and supplement their schooling, recreational activities to develop self-confidence and social skills, protection from violence and danger, ongoing Christian training, and a chance to see the truth of the gospel in action.

Joe Paulo, President and CEO, Hope Media Group, says, “The audience response blew us away, exceeding our expectations. It’s so powerful to witness thousands of people mobilized by a vision for the world who then turn around and do a world of good. This is justice and generosity at its best.”

The three-day fundraisers encouraged listeners to change the lives of children living in poverty in Brazil and Africa, where children often lack access to food, clean water, shelter and more.

Matt Hahn, manager of influencer partnerships at Compassion International, shares, “It’s such a blessing to link arms with Hope Media Group to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name with their amazing listeners around the country on WayFM, KSBJ and Vida Unida. The energy from HMG is contagious, and that passion provides hope to these precious children around the world,” Hahn concludes.
