“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brother of mine, you did for me” – Jesus
“Tumaini” is Swahili for hope.
In Kagera, north-west Tanzania there could be 200,000 orphans, mostly due to AIDS which exploded in this area at the time of the genocides in Rwanda and Burundi. Women and girls were attacked and HIV soared from 2.8% to 28%, leaving 1 in 3 families orphaned.
Of all the people in the world, the orphans of Kagera desperately need Hope. Many will go to sleep tonight, not in a bed, but on the ground, with no food in their stomach, no adult carer, no decent shelter, no chance of education.
Jesus’ brother James wrote:
“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
Come and join us in this mission. Help us to take Jesus’ hope to the orphans of Kagera.
