One of the biggest social problems facing urbanizing Africa are the orphans and street kids. These children are at high risk of abuse, neglect, malnutrition, disease, and trafficking. Without help, these orphans and street kids have NO HOPE for the future! This is your opportunity to change their world. You can make a difference by touching one child at a time with lots of love, hugs, and smiles. You can show them that there are people who genuinely care and are willing to put the love of Christ in their lives into action.
Previous teams have build an orphan home and two homes for street kids, a preschool, brought tools for vocational skills training, drilled a well, and conducted community medical clinics. This year we will be working to complete a home for the street girls rehabilitation with Onesimus Homes plus have and outreach to the street children living on the streets. If possible, we would also like to conduct a 2-day community medical clinic.
