Our mission is simple but to many it may seem impossible. God has given us a vision that includes caring for over 200 orphans in the state of Oyo, Nigeria. When we thing of the 9 million plus Nigerian orphans, its a hard concept for us to grasp mentally. The question arises, "WHY SO MANY ORPHANS?" Over 3,000 Africans die daily from Malaria. It kills an African child every 30 SECONDS. Water borne diseases, poor health care, countless tragedies, HIV/AIDS and a lack of health care add to the rising number of Orphans. One Fourth of the Nine Million Orphans in Nigeria are HIV positive. The average life span if a Nigerian is now 47 years of age, living on less than a $1 a day.
