Exciting Update: How You're Helping Relief Efforts in Nepal and More!

NEPAL

Exciting Update: How You're Helping Relief Efforts in Nepal and More!Thank you for ensuring that as many children as possible are protected from traffickers and the fate of orphanhood!You're helping protect orphans and vulnerable children from trafficking, disease, and death in Nepal! 

More than 15,000 young girls are trafficked out of Nepal and into the Asian sex trade every year. This number is only rising as families struggle to survive in the post-earthquake crisis. Fearful of returning indoors due to the constant tremors, cracked walls, and unstable foundations, people have set up makeshift tents that are at the mercy of monsoon rains, traffickers and disease.

Thankfully, your gifts are making a tremendous difference in helping orphans, vulnerable children and families at risk in Nepal. Who knew that house repairs, roofing and medical camps would be some of the most effective orphan care and trafficking prevention strategies following the massive earthquake? 

So far, your gifts have helped our partners in Nepal repair 400 houses so that people can return to a secure home. They have brought aid to those who will not be reached by the government and other large organizations: the poor, lower caste and under-developed communities. 

In addition to home repair, your gifts have equipped the team to provide community support: training parents on how to identify potential traffickers, counseling children through the local schools and providing children with basic needs. 

Rapid-response earthquake relief funds are wonderful, but global interest and compassion generally fades as the trauma leaves the headlines. 

Thank you for partnering with Nepal through the entire healing process and to ensure that as many children as possible are protected from traffickers and the fate of orphanhood!

UKRAINE

Exciting Update: How You're Helping Relief Efforts in Nepal and More!Nazar (blue) has gone from bed-ridden to miraculously mobile under the loving care of his adoptive parents. Thank you for helping them!Nazar's family says THANKS for helping with their bathroom repairs

When Nazar was adopted by the Belousovi family as an infant, they knew he had severe physical problems. For years, Nazar could do nothing but lie in bed. After years of prayer and daily therapy from his parents, Nazar could finally hold his head up and sit with help. He was five years old. 

Further medical examination showed that he doesn't actually have cerebral palsy like the doctors originally thought, but that in fact part of his brain is missing. This means his condition will likely never improve.

Even though it isn't easy, and they have had to make many changes in their family to accommodate Nazar, they love him and are committed to caring for him as well as his sisters. 

Now seven, Nazar continues to improve under the loving care of his parents. Because they have amassed a variety of additional expenses due to the cost of adequately providing for Nazar's special needs, they were thrilled to hear that YOU cared enough to help them modify their bathroom so that it is accessible to Nazar.

UGANDA

Exciting Update: How You're Helping Relief Efforts in Nepal and More!You've helped Deborah and her adoptive family start a business that is providing for their entire family. Thank you!Deborah says "thank you" for supporting her and her family

Deborah's story began in tragedy when she was orphaned after her parents fell prey to a fatal disease. Now 8 years old, she has been adopted by a wonderful family in her home country of Uganda. 

Despite their open hearts and conviction to take in destitute children, Deborah's parents have struggled to make ends meet. Every year they have wondered if they can even afford to send their children to school. 

That's where you came in to help! Through your generous giving, the family started a small hair salon. Business is booming, and they now have a sustainable income to care for Deborah and their other children. They are influencing their community and sharing their heart for adoption in the process.

As for Deborah... she is thriving! She is going to school and receiving the medical attention she needs. Deborah loves helping with her new siblings, playing net ball, and learning new things. Thank you for your support and prayers for Deborah and her family!
