Give Hope to Children in Need This Holiday Season

The holidays are a special time when we feel the most grateful and are especially aware of the importance of family. It’s typically a joyous time that is filled with celebration surrounded by our loved loves, but for many children in the world’s youngest country, this time of year is often spent alone.

This year, we ask that you share the gift of hope and love to orphans, such as Asha, that are living at the St. Jean Antide Center in the city of Rejaf; a facility we have funded that is dedicated to helping orphans find solace through shelter, education, and food.

5-year-old Asha was found wandering the streets alone after her mother and father were shot to death amid the increasingly vicious civil war. The center took the little girl under their wing and she now has a safe place where she can finally call home.

But the orphans are given so much more than just a roof over their head. They are given love, support, food, an education, and are taught life skills such as knitting and sewing, which will help them thrive for years to come.

For orphans whose lives have been scarred by violence, it’s your gifts that will help bring a smile to their faces this Christmas.

So please, send a generous tax-deductible donation and help us paint a brighter future for these children.

Thank you and God bless you for your caring heart and generosity.

Sincerely,

Surviving Leprosy
Bringing Healing to the Forsaken

Lepers become homeless, destitute, and eventually starve. Without treatment, their disease progresses until they grow too weak or disabled to help themselves. They slowly die from exposure, starvation, illness, or attacks by wild animals.
