ORPHANAGE NEEDS: $150,000 for construction of a new facility that could house up to 100 children.
If you are a child in Uganda, there is much to dread. In addition to extreme poverty and high incidences of malaria and AIDS, you might have been a “Night Commuter” during the recent guerrilla conflict – one of thousands of children who left their families to avoid abduction and recruitment into the Lord’s Resistance Army. While the guerrilla campaign is now under cease fire, the country remains in crisis. An estimated 3.5 million children in Uganda are believed to be orphans due to AIDS or violence. Our Grace Children’s Home stands as an island of compassion in this war-torn land. Although a caring place, the orphanage is quite small (only 2,000 square feet) and until recently it lacked even basic amenities such as electricity and a stove for cooking. Although Serving Orphans Worldwide has made many improvements, a new and improved Grace Children’s Home is needed. Property has been purchased, but an estimated $150,000 is needed to construct a proper facility. Please help us with this life-altering transition.
of your funds go straight to the front lines of orphan care all over the world.
