Former East Africa Mission (2013-16)
HIV/AIDS along with malaria and other diseases, not to mention war, kill vast numbers of adults in East Africa as well as throughout the continent. This leaves a huge swathe of orphans. In East Africa the statistics are grim:
This means that in the NCAY Lake Victoria Region (Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi), there are over 4 million children without parents. That's 2% of the world's 201 million orphans, an appalling number.
In any growing mission like ours there are therefore bound to be new orphans who need taking care of. We need to not only meet their basic physical needs (food, clothes, shelter and medical treatment) but provide families for them to stay with too. At NCAY we try, wherever possible, to find homes amongst our members for these very needy members of society. Extra mouths to feed does put enormous economic strain on families who in most cases are barely surviving themselves.
At some point - and very soon - we are either going to have to raise enough money to build and staff one or more orphanages or to help out families who have demonstrated the true love Messiah and taken these children into their homes.
In spite of going through a terrible recession, people who are economically pressed in the West can still make a difference in the Third World. It doesn't take a lot to look after one child, a tiny fraction of what it would cost in the West.
We want to ask you, our members and friends, to sacrifice something on a regular basis to that we can give to these victims of man's greed and cruelty what we wouldn't think twice about giving to our own children. The governments can't and won't help because they're broke. That leaves only us.
Please get in contact with Pastor Agoi, tell him that you would like to make a contribution to the orphans, and check out the best method of sending money. There are no administration costs in this ministry, no paid workers - everything is voluntary, no frills. Funds go directly to where they're needed.
