Thousands of African children will be able to greet the new year full of hope, thanks to friends like you.  On behalf of the children who were born healthy this year and their mothers who gave birth safely; families who have access to clean water and who no longer risk illness or even death drinking from contaminated sources; and so many others, we say THANK YOU!

In 2017, you brought joy to thousands, including

149 orphaned children who live at the Lewa Children’s Home in Eldoret, Kenya and the Kabwata Orphanage and Transit Centre in Lusaka, Zambia, all who received food, health care, and other basic needs, as well as an education.

152 orphaned, abandoned or destitute children who were supported through foster care and received food support, a living allowance, help with school fees and basic health care.

65,000 people who received medical care, counseling and health education from our partner organizations in Sierra Leone.

1,225 children at the Lamgie Full Cycle Elementary School in Ethiopia who have clean drinking water from a well that was completed in May on the school grounds.

150 female farmers who received training and supplies from our partner in Sierra Leone to establish small farming operations to help sustain their families.

Thank you for making smiles possible for these children, women, and so many more.

Thank you for making joy a possibility.
