Ray of Hope Amazon focuses on humanitarian and spiritual needs of children and families who live in remote villages along the Amazon river, specifically providing support to the families of children with special needs. Kids with special needs can often be seen as a. curse to these tribes, and often they will not receive the love and care that they need. Ray of Hope Amazon seeks out these children, providing medicine and education for the families. Without access to services and churches in these remote areas, the families lack food, medicine, toys and clothing. Brent and his volunteers are a resource for support, letting these families know that they are not forgotten.
Ray of Hope Amazon supports several feeding centers in the region to address chronic food and nutrition shortages by providing daily meals to those in need. This outreach has provided foundational support for the jungle people and their pastors.
