Merry Christmas and blessings for 2017!

Last year's Christmas concert at the Orphanage, with the community's children invited to watch. It was lots of fun!
We managed to raise some money to help Hosea expand his pig farming project. Here are two new litters. This is phase I towards self sufficiency at the orphanage. Well done Hosea!

Our Dream

Our dream is to purchase land (around 2 acres) and construct a main building with kitchen/dining room and six small houses (600 sq.ft.). Each small house will be home to 8 children and host parents. The compound will have a vegetable garden, chicken coops and pig pens to produce food for the orphanage, as well as sufficient to sell and help support living expenses. Read more...   

Malaria still a Major Challenge

Omari is an energetic, sometimes bit mischievous 9-year old boy, who enjoys life to the full. He has recently contracted a serious bout of Malaria, and is currently hospitalised. Malaria still impacts at least two to three children every month at the orphanage. Milder cases are treated at home, but sometimes hospitalisation is necessary. The service is provided on a fee for service basis. Unfortunately, the leadership has to take funds from the food budget to pay these fees, as the budget is not 100% funded.

Please consider supporting the orphanage this Christmas with a one time gift, or become a monthly donor. A small monthly amount makes a big difference to children like Omari to ensure medical treatment and nutritious meals.

Omari in healthy times and in hospital this week.
