Royal Hearts of Hope International (RHHI) was established in June 2013, and exists to serve the poor, the orphans, and widows and to preach the gospel of the kingdom to the ends of the earth. The founder and president, Samantha Francis, has been a born again Christian for almost 20 years and has served in one or more of these areas both nationally and internationally for over 15 years. After a 15 year career as an Intelligence Analyst working in the metropolitan Washington DC area Ms. Francis felt the Lord was leading her to follow a long time dream of working for His kingdom on the foreign missions field in a fuller capacity. She had participated in short-term missions trips to Central America, Asia, Africa and the Caribbean in prior years. Ms. Francis has served in orphanages in Haiti and India. She visited India in 2015 to serve in a local orphanage in Andhra Pradesh state. This orphanage, now officially named Royal Hearts of Hope Children’s Home, was started in 2006 by a local village pastor, but later closed due to lack of funding. His son, Evangelist Pranaya Dadala reopened the home in 2012 by faith and since 2015 RHHI has taken on the responsibility of caring for these children. Prior to RHHI assistance, the children ate only twice per week due to inadequate financial support. However, with the help of generous donors these children are now able to eat regular meals.
The number of children at the RHHI children’s home has grown, from 13 in 2015, to currently almost 30 orphaned and abandoned children.Evangelist Pranaya Dadala was born and raised in a Christian home in the state of Andhra Pradesh, south India. His father has been a local village pastor for over 25 years. Evangelist Dadala’s family was very poor and the family sometimes went without food and shelter. Their struggles were many. Never-the-less, throughout these struggles he was able to undergo public education. After completing high school he attended KITS Engineering College East Godavari, Andhra Pradesh with the financial assistance of a family friend. He graduated with a degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering at the top of his class in 2012. Upon completion of the degree, he felt that God was calling him to dedicate the remainder of his life to service in full time ministry. He was offered a job with the Indian Railway company but declined in order to follow the call of God upon his life. Being moved with compassion for the needy and vulnerable of society due to similar difficult experiences in his life and after seeking God’s direction, he decided that the best way to serve in ministry was to care for the poor, orphans and widows and to do the work of Christian evangelism. He was ordained in his local church, which his father pastors.
Evangelist Dadala’s heart of mercy to serve these vulnerable children is unmatched. After witnessing the deplorable conditions of the children who live in the mountainous tribal regions, going without food, shelter or proper care, he has made it his personal mission to care for this particular group of children. Although he lacked sufficient resources, he continued to help those who are even poorer than himself. The original orphanage was started by his father, Pastor Wilson Dadala in 2006, but it later closed due to lack of funding. Evangelist Dadala was eager to serve the LORD but because of a lack of funding, he took out a small loan to finance the reopening of the orphanage in December 2012 and, by faith, it continues to serve these children today.
Evangelist Dadala manages the day to day operations of the orphanage by overseeing the small staff of four ladies (which includes three widows) who care for the children. He also manages all RHHI operations and administration in India with the goal of providing each child all that he or she needs, spiritually and physically, to develop into the person God created them to be.
