Why I love orphan care

Check out this video from World Orphans

I love orphan care because it’s an opportunity to serve a child who is vulnerable.  There are a lot of people that are willing to “care” for orphans, but at times they are not interested in the child’s well being.  By studying and applying best practice in orphan care, we can truly make a difference.

The vision for Kupenda 127 is becoming clearer every single day.  It’s wrap around, continuum of care for these children — no matter where they are.  It’s supporting their caregivers, families, and the child.  It’s not just residential care or finding kinship care — it’s education, food, medical, and whatever other needs that child and their family have.

It’s partnering with other organizations and groups to help provide great service to these kids and meet a need that is so large and wide spread.  It’s a journey and a chance to really live our faith, be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world today.
