When Hope for the World Director Roger Mullins first visited an Albanian orphanage in 1994, the children were sleeping 30 to a room, covered with thin blankets, no mattresses, and no heat. Below is video footage inside the orphanage where conditions were extremely poor. That first winter, Roger returned to Tirana and provided the children with their first Christmas. Before the children went to bed that night, they all took turns thanking him for their presents. While they clutched the first toys they had ever received, they were most thankful to him for the new heat that Hope for the World provided...

Hope for the World is still touching the lives of orphans in Albania. Over 11,000 lives have been changed because of the love and care we've been able to provide through the generosity of our donors and the dedication of our missionaries. In 2015, God moved on the hearts of Buddy and Kerri Mullins (Buddy is the son of Roger and Cherie) to become more than sponsors of the work and to fully immerse themselves into helping Hope for the World grow.

Hope for the World Foundation has been recognized as the number one NGO (a non-profit organization that operates independently of any government) in the country of Albania and has been awarded the Mother Teresa Award by the President of Albania, this is the highest award given to a humanitarian organization. At Hope for the World’s 25th anniversary celebration event in Tirana, the Director of Social Services for the country of Albania made the statement, “Hope for the World has not only changed the lives of the orphans of Albania but has changed the country of Albania.”

Hope for the World Foundation is now looking to the future, knowing there is so much yet to accomplish and there are so many lives yet to reach. We are confident, as Philippians 1:6 says, “And certain that God, who began the good work…, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”


Cherie Mullins, wife of Director since 1994, Roger Mullins, wrote a series of books on their journey through life. The Albanian Attachment is a deep dive into the beginning of our ministry and a truly enjoyable and informative read on the work that's been and is still being done through Hope for the World in this country.

(and yes I have read most),
I would say this was one of
my best and
most enjoyable reads."
