Children are at the heart of the Omega mission work. Most of the children living in our homes have lost family or home, some are orphans while others have been abandoned, abused, or even sold by their families.
A child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to reach out and help a child. For $30 per month a boy or girl can be sponsored; this will not only provide a home and food to eat, but also ensure that a child receives a good education, often participates in vocational training, and grows up learning about the love of God.
Each sponsor receives a sponsorship certificate with a picture and details of the child. Periodically, sponsors will receive letters from the child, and sponsors are encouraged to correspond with their boy or girl. Like all children, they enjoy hearing from someone who cares about them.
We also firmly believe that the special prayers of the sponsors help our children excel and recover from the difficult lives they knew before coming to our children's homes.
Although we have previously provided assistance for widows in the communities where our homes are located, to have an elderly care center is a new venture for Omega Foundation, but it is something we are excited about.
It is heartbreaking to hear the stories of the elderly men and women, whose families cannot or will not care for them, rather neglecting and rejecting them. We are glad that we are able to care for them in a safe and loving environment.
We need compassionate donors for the elderly. There is no set monthly amount for sponsoring one of our elderly men or women, however there is a definite need!
