Via Wings was born in 2009 to help those in need in the community of Dromore… to help change lives by lifting people up on Wings like Eagles and, through our many projects, we work to help break the cycle of poverty.
Poverty is so much more than the lack of money or food – Poverty is also loneliness, isolation, deprivation, brokenness and so much more. All of these things are just as close to each of us as the loss of a job, sickness, breakdown of a marriage, death of a loved one, or abuse, both physical and mental. We also understand that houses can sometimes be shells and not necessarily homes, which can be as cold inside as they are outside.
We deal with all of the above, and more, on a daily basis in our own community and also now further afield. Our aim is to show God’s love in a loving, caring, practical, non-judgemental way. Just like the eagle pushes her baby from the nest to teach them how to fly, God planted a vision and He gently has pushed us from His nesting arms to grow this charity and He provided all we have needed since the day we set out on this mission.
Now, we have reached a stage where we have out-grown our current nest and realise that it is, once again, time to fly. We need a new home to enable us to continue to grow into all we were born to be.
Our charity is based on Isaiah 40 v 29-31
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
