Public Benefit

Ark of Hope has been founded with the mission to uplift the impoverished and disadvantaged in society by securing financial support and raising funds. This purpose allows Ark of Hope to fund its initiatives and establish community programs, as evidenced by the feedback from individuals and groups, both local and global, who benefit from our activities.

Weekly Cookery Section

Our culinary workshops are a weekly gathering that brings our community together, offering more than just cooking lessons; it’s an opportunity to learn, share, and savour the flavours of togetherness.

Winter Food Parcel Program

Every week during the winter months, we carry out a culturally sensitive food distribution program, providing essential sustenance to disadvantaged individuals within our community during the winter months amidst this ever increasing cost of living crisis.
