South Africa

There are an estimated 3.7 million orphans in South Africa Рclose to half of them have lost their parents to AIDS-related diseases and there are many more children living with sick and bedridden caregivers. A fifth of South Africa’s children are malnourished.

With unemployment now at over 37%, the future is bleak for these orphans and vulnerable children. Partnering with the founding pastor of Orphan Sunday in Zambia, the first (of many) sea going containers was sent to Pretoria to help these children.
