A HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
What would it be like to have 49 sisters or 32 brothers when you are getting ready for the holidays? That would be your family if you lived at one of the Jamaa Letu orphanages in the Congo.
When you prepare for Christmas this year, consider the 81 children and teens that live in the Jamaa Letu orphanages. Consider a special financial gift to make their home be “A Home For The Holidays”.
Hope for the Children of Africa is a task force of the Pacific Northwest Conference of the United Methodist Church. Since 2000 through a partnership with the South Congo Episcopal Area, we support two orphanages and collaborate with mission teams in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
During the late 1990′s in response to the request from African Bishops in the United Methodist Church the task force was created to assist in providing relief and reconciliation to innocent children victims of wars, famines and the destruction of schools and hospitals due to the unrest of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
