What Do We Do?


It all starts with food. Many orphanages have little resources to feed their children. We partner with orphanages to feed hungry children in Africa and Asia. Every dollar feeds four children a meal!


Our driving passion is for every child to know God’s love. We advocate for “safe loving homes” to call family. The Special Needs Orphan is our primary focus as we partner with The Gem Foundation.


Emergency surgeries for Special Needs Orphans can mean the difference between life and death. We seek to provide the best medical care for orphans and vulnerable children.

We're on a mission to care for orphans around the world. And with the support of incredible people like you, we've fed nearly 500,000 orphans, provided surgery for many special needs children and taken over 20 mission trips overseas.


Join our cause and help a child in need today by giving a one-time or monthly donation.


We'd love to have you join us on one of our trips. Go love the orphan face to face.
