One of the greatest contributors to the vulnerability of children around the world is separation from the love, care, and protection of a family. Poverty, disease, disability, abuse, conflicts and disasters are but a few reasons why children find themselves out of parental care.
This ministry exists to care for vulnerable children by preventing their unnecessary separation from family, strengthening family care and reducing the numbers of children being placed in orphanages and institutions.
We believe that God designed and ordained families to care for children. Psalm 68:6 states that “God sets the lonely in families”.
Although an orphanage may meet a child’s physical needs, the research of child development specialists has concluded that their social and emotional needs are unmet or under-developed when living in long-term residential care. Despite this, residential care remains the first, or often only option available to vulnerable children in many developing countries.
