Rescue Children Orphaned by War and HIV/AIDS

Sub-Saharan Africa is home to some 45 million orphaned children. That’s more than the total number of all children under the age of 18 living in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Norway and Sweden combined.

Nearly a third of these children have lost their parents to AIDS. AIDS is particularly brutal to children because it often wipes out the entire family network. Since the extended family is typically the only safety net these children have, AIDS orphans are critically vulnerable. Without family members to care for them, these children will almost always end up on the streets – where they face terrible odds for survival.

-  They will eat other people’s garbage.
-  They will drink water that is dirty and full of disease.
-  They will have no safe place to sleep.
-  They will have no protection from the elements –
…or from unscrupulous adults. Many end up exploited and abused as prostitutes or as child slave laborers.

Jonathan & Joyce Obiagwu seeks to rescue these desperately vulnerable children. We strive to give them hope for life by providing them with the basic necessities for a simply living.

With the help of our donors, we provide food, health care, clothing and education to these critically vulnerable children. It takes so little to save a child. With your help, we could do so much more.
