We Have Merged

Natural Spring

There are some significant changes happening within ORA New Zealand and Hope Street this year which we would like you to know about. ORA New Zealand and Hope Street have been supporting the same international partners and have shared very similar missions and values. However, we have been running two brands and are beginning to see some duplication of work with this model.

The first change we have made is to merge ORA New Zealand and Hope Street. Joining together we can have a greater positive impact and improve efficiency. You will notice other changes over the coming months as we rebrand and merge websites. Rest assured, we will continue to honour the histories and cultures of our organisations while strengthening the long-term future for all. We will work together for a common goal of showing God’s practical love, building on the commitment and dedication of all who have previously worked in ORA New Zealand and Hope Street.

“If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
– African Proverb

Above all we want to make the process of this merger and rebranding as seamless as possible for our donors, international partners and beneficiaries. We will communicate regularly throughout this change and welcome your input along the journey. More information is available from the contact points for both Hope Street and ORA New Zealand.

This is a great step forward and we look forward to your continued support.
