WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

The Hing Family serves in Latin America with Extreme Response International, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Extreme Response helps people in developing countries find hope, opportunities and sustainability through better nutrition, education, leadership training, skill development and advocacy.

Our family has been living and serving in Latin America since 2011. Our ministry is sustained by the generous and faithful support of individuals, families, and organizations. We believe that breaking the cycle of poverty and creating positive life change is best done through long-term relationships.

Our focus with Extreme Response is in the areas of:

  • EDUCATIONAL ACCESS
  • EMPOWERING WOMEN
  • HELPING ORPHANS AND CHILDREN AT RISK
