We’ve learned of 10 orphans in the communities we serve in Nepal who are desperately in need of assistance.
They previously received stipends of rice to the two families housing them, but they are no longer receiving those contributions. Their homes have been damaged since the earthquake so the foster families’ funds are split between feeding the young children and ensuring they have a safe place to live.
Two families have taken them in – two house mothers who divide rice and their meager earnings between their own children and these orphans, who lost their families to natural or self-inflicted causes following the earthquake.
A generous anonymous contributor has agreed to match donations up to $1,000 – meaning your dollar goes twice as far. These children can be fed, housed, clothed, and to be enrolled in school this year with your help.
This Mother’s Day, help us give these children full bellies and a head start on a new life.
