Many in Sudan lack access to basic necessities like food, clothing and shelter. At the World Orphans project in Darfur former street boys are living in church-based homes where they receive so much more than just the necessities. Each year our church partner purchases a full set of new clothing for the children under their care. This year, you can help provide new clothing and shoes for 50 boys for only $1,650 (or $33 for one child.)

UGANDA: Life-saving mosquito nets
Malaria is a silent killer. Many young children succumb to this deadly disease every day and yet prevention is simple. Treated mosquito nets have been proven to reduce infection and save lives. Our church partners are able to provide these necessary nets for the children living in their homes, but there are many more children in their communities sleeping without protection. We would like to help our church partners to distribute these life-saving mosquito nets to 100 needy children. To do this, we need $880 (or $8.80 for one child.)

KENYA: Shoes for slum children
The slums of major cities are dangerous places where crime is high and even the ground is unsafe to walk on. In Kenya, one of our church partners is ministering to numerous families living in the slums of Nairobi. Many of the children they help are walking around without shoes. This simple need can be met for 100 children for $670. (or $6.70 for one child.)
