Serving Orphans Worldwide is honored to partner with the Church of God this year to meet the needs of more orphaned and abandoned children around the world. We believe that all children are loved by God, and throughout scripture, we see God’s heart for the fatherless. We believe that one of the responsibilities of God’s people is to care for widows, orphans, and those who have been marginalized by the economic and social systems of this world. There are over 7,000 children living at Church of God homes around the world. At Serving Orphans Worldwide, we are a COG partner agency that conducts site visits, collects monthly reports, and raises funds for over 60 homes in 30 countries. 100% goes directly to the field thanks to a group of special sponsors who cover all SOW administrative costs.
It can be overwhelming to learn that there are approximately 150 million orphans in the world needing the hope found in the Father. Despite these startling facts, there is one organization with the heart, resources and global delivery system to make a huge dent in the orphan crisis- the Church.
Orphan Run 4 Hope helps ordinary people do extraordinary things by participating in a 5k, half or full marathon to benefit orphaned children around the world. Orphan Run 4 Hope exists to be a bridge between Churches and orphaned children in need.
Our experienced speaking team can provide a full presentation for your Orphan Sunday or missions service. During the service, we will share about the orphan crisis, stories from the field and provide materials for your leadership and congregation.
Our unique child sponsorship program is a wonderful way to allow your congregation to actively be involved in orphan care. For $38/mo, sponsors will receive a name and face to pray for, as well as updates on their sponsored child throughout the year.
Your $38 per month combined with others allow our partner homes to give a child more than the basic necessities to survive, but the skills and opportunities to thrive as they transition to adulthood.
