It was just three years ago that the Lord opened a door for us to begin the Child Headed Householdministry. Thanks to the support of generous donors a growing number of vulnerable orphans living in homes without a parent, are now receiving basic support along with Hope & Love. Food, school fees & supplies, medical care, prayer, counseling, and an adult presence through home visits are just some of the ways the Passion Center supports these children. But these homes, and the homes of other Passion Children who live with elderly grandparents, are in terrible shape. The current condition of these homes is a need that we have to address better.
Many of these homes do not keep the rain or rodents out, both of which are prevalent in the area. Major gaps in the walls let the cold in and most homes have no door or a door that doesn’t close. This affects the safety of our kids who are already vulnerable. Improper cooking facilities create smoke buildup leading to respiratory problems, while current restroom facilities are inadequate and further degrade the sanitary condition of the homes.
All of these are repairs require resources our kids do not have. In coordination with the Malawian team, we’ve set an annual goal of rebuilding two houses completely and doing substantial repairs for two additional houses. The total for these four projects comes to $4,000. Some funds have already been donated and we are starting to develop a Construction Mission Team to assist in the rebuilding/repairing projects. This month we ask if you would prayerfully consider donating finances to “Build Them a Home.” Donate to the Build Them a Home project.
Thank you for the difference your prayers and financial support makes to our kids and their homes. May God continue to bless and guide you.
