CHILDREN

Caring for Orphans & Vulnerable Children

"There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children."

Nelson Mandela

Children are at the heart of God. Jesus’ concern for children was clear.

We have made remarkable progress for the world’s children, yet much remains to be done and we have a responsibility to care for the next generation.

Distortion of the truth of every child’s value and rights finds expression in various ways.
Here we highlight some of the challenges facing children in our world today, with hope and faith that layers of individual and collective response will make a positive difference for the next generation.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress
and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
James 1:27

But Jesus called the children to him and said,
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”
Luke 18:15-17

A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children.
Proverbs 13:22a

Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these
brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.
Matthew 25:40

“I found myself imagining a precious African sister in heaven, her life cut short because of disease or neglect. And then, as strange as this may sound, it felt as if I suddenly heard her speak from eternity, asking, “Who will take care of my babies?"
God was again highlighting what He needed from us - a host of willing women who would care for their left-behind babies as though they were their very own.”
