My name is Grace, and I am the founder and director of HFC. A little over three years ago I became very sick and had to be admitted to the hospital. During those hospital stays, I would wear headbands that I made because they made me feel more confident in the way I looked even after the physical changes that had resulted from my treatments. At one of my stays at Children’s National Hospital in DC, Child Life asked if I wanted to pass out the headbands I had made with other kids on my floor. Unfortunately, I was too sick to pass them out, but I handed the headbands over to her. The next day I saw a little girl walking by my room wearing one of my headbands. It was in that moment that I knew that I wanted to make this big, and I wanted Jesus to be the center of it.
Since December of 2016, Having Faith Cures has grown into more than just helping bring confidence back to girls with life-altering/threatening illnesses to partnering with two different organizations in Africa. We’ve had a partnership with Every Orphan’s Hope since our opening in sponsoring an orphan in their program named Mirriam. We began our partnership with Global Belief Project‘s ‘It is Well’ Campaign this Spring to help put an end to the water crisis in Uganda. On our 1 year anniversary, we began a partnership with Project Yesu. For every Project Yesu Headband sold, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Project Yesu, to help break the cycle of poverty by providing food and education to impoverished children in Uganda.
It has been amazing to see how the Lord is working in the lives of children going through similar battles as I did and continue to go through. I can not wait to see what Jesus has in store for this ministry.
