Will you be their light this Orphan Sunday?
Orphan Sunday started in a small church in Zambia in 2002. Today, churches throughout the world recognize Orphan Sunday and advocate for orphans across the globe and to celebrate the heart of God for orphans.
Join us this November 8th and be THEIR light. We ask that you PRAY for these children and those that care for them, these have been incredibly challenging times, SHARE information about their basic survival needs building awareness of this crisis and that you GIVE as generously as you are able, to help care for these children. We have free digital resources to help you get involved, whether you are a church, individual or community, so be sure to email us for materials.
YOU can help us turn this one day into a movement that goes beyond just one day. Here’s why:
- It is estimated that there are 153 million orphans worldwide—it is a crisis. If they were a nation, they would be the 9th largest nation in the world, larger than the populations of Russia, Japan and Mexico.
- The reality is that 99% of these children will never be adopted. Most organizations focus on solving the orphan crisis with adoption and prevention---both ideal options. Haven of Hope focuses on the one's left behind. Existing foster/orphan care homes often struggle to provide even the basic necessities—food, a bed and a roof—let alone the tools to help these forgotten children thrive as adults in the future. This is why we do the work we do and this is why we need you.
