Our Mission


Zimbabwe continues to suffer from political and medical disasters that havecrippled the country.  The AIDS crisis has left nearly 1.3 million children in Zimbabwe as orphans, which is about 10% of the total population in Zimbabwe.  Many of these children have no adult family members or extended family able to care for them.


So, of the 1.3 million orphans, only about 130,000 of these children are

placed in orphanages at this time.  As a result, many orphanages are being established in Zimbabwe to care for these hurting and hungry children.  And although our ministry isn't in building these orphanages, it is in finding, supporting, and loving the orphans in them.


Unfortunately, the Zimbabwe governmental health systems have quickly deteriorated, leaving mission hospitals greatly responsible for its citizen’s medical care.  And at the same time, the government social care services have continued to collapse due to sever political and economic problems.  The unemployment rate is 80%, the poverty rate is approximately 90%, and alarming inflation rates have caused the collapse of the local currency.


And while the local government is not an option, there IS hope for the children of Zimbabwe.  Under the leadership of the Zimbabwe Orphan Program, we are finding these orphans to give them that hope.  But we cannot do it alone.  With your support, these orphans have the opportunity to be fed physically, educationally, and most importantly, spiritually.  In addition to meeting all of these crucial needs, school-age children will be evaluated for attending Christian boarding schools in the area. 


God has opened our eyes to possible ways of caring for these children.  In James 1:27, we read “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress...”  We are called to care for the orphans and widows.  Christ also says in Matthew 25:40 that “…whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”  We are giving someone who has no hope, hope for the future; and in doing this we are being a reflection of God’s love to them.
