Orphans / Vulnerable Families
“I felt special- chosen. I had lost my mother to HIV a year previous and our grandmother had taken us in. She had very little money and treated as if we were a burden. Now the burden was lifted. I knew I would be going to school and getting 2 meals a day now. I had so much joy the day I found out I was sponsored. I was young and didn’t really know what hope was, but now I see it was the beginning of hope for my life.”
An estimated 1.6 million orphans live in Zambia, and due to the AIDS epidemic, more children are orphaned daily. James 1:27 says “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
Sponsors for Orphans
"Prepare the way for our children to find and fulfill God’s purpose"1 Chronicles. 22:7-10"
God’s Unconditional love is demonstrated through sponsorship of orphans and vulnerable families. Orphans supported by Loving God’s Children live in homes and are cared for by family. The orphans are either single (lost one parent), or double (lost both parents).
