New Websites for Hope Health Action
"'We’re so grateful for all the support you’ve all offered! The site looks amazing and I’m sure it’s going to really help us in the coming years. Thank you for your kind support, patience and help.'"
Carwyn Hill, co-founder, Hope Health Action
Hope Health Action (HHA) is a Christian NGO passionate about providing life-saving health and disability care for the world’s most vulnerable, without any discrimination. The charity was birthed following Carwyn's response to a post-it note left on a notice board at a Christian conference. The note was written by the then President of The Baptist Convention of Haiti (Pastor Gedeon), who was in need of a bed having travelled to the UK and underestimated the cost of accommodation. Pastor Gedeon accepted Carwyn’s invitation and the two quickly connected. Pastor Gedeon subsequently invited Carwyn and two friends, Jonnie Horner and Rodney Wilson, to Haiti. Whilst there they were touched by the tragic and completely unnecessary death of an 11-year-old girl called Julia, who died simply due to a lack of basic health care. Feeling challenged by God at the injustice of what they’d witnessed they decided to start HHA.
Since that time HHA has provided health care for over 20,000 patients in Haiti, and provided life-saving and life-transforming care for people with disabilities in Haiti and Uganda.
How the website was designed and built?
HHA had a very specific brief with clear idea of the user journey that they wanted and the functionality that was needed. The site therefore sat better as a bespoke website, and fortunately Church Pages' software is ideally placed to create this type of site.
We were very blessed to be able to work alongside Michael Goldsmith, the Haiti/US Country Director, who is an accomplished designer. Working collaboratively the site evolved, and once the UK site was completed then we were able to build the US HHA website.
The finished websites benefit from:
- Branded, clean, responsive design that has strong customer engagement.
- Excellent user-experience with easy navigation, a sticky nav, and a highly functional search.
- The ability to copy content quickly from one site to another
- An simple to use CMS which means that HHA can edit and manage the site themselves.
- Support at the end of the phone when required.
What else did Church Pages do?
We optimised the site and provided training on how to use the software.
How did the website go live?
We worked with Michael to help him with the domain changes.
We were very pleased with the finished websites and have felt privileged to be able to continue to support HHA in their amazing work amongst the poorest and most vulnerable of the world.
