Our mission is to bring hope and healing to children from diverse communities and cultures who are orphaned, victims of war, human trafficking and poverty. We want the children to grow spiritually and develop in all areas of their lives. We want them to know they can rise above their circumstances and be everything God made them to be. They are not forgotten. We unite with other Christians, ministries, and aid organizations to break ungodly philosophies, traditions and norms that lead to the abuse and exploitation of children. We offer pathways to freedom, provision, and progression so that they experience a change that propels them into a future filled with promise.
What We Do
- Travel to all areas of the world to show unconditional love for children.
- We share the Good News and are witnesses of the reality of the savior, Jesus Christ in our own lives.
- Provide resources for the essential needs of children such as food, hygiene, school materials, shoes and OTC medications that are scarce or inaccessible to many.
- Establish and build relationships of trust with the children, families and caregivers that we serve.
- Advocate for the lost and broken child through the media and through partnerships with like-minded organizations.
