Today is Giving Tuesday
Today is Giving Tuesday and we hope that you are ready to join our efforts to defend the fatherless. Check out the projects below- the child you are adopting, or will adopt, may benefit from the generous donations that are coming in from all over to support these important initiatives! Please give here through December 31 and thank you for your continued advocacy on behalf of those who do not have a family.
One hundred percent of all donations will go to meeting the needs of children. America Worldâ€™s humanitarian work ranges from sending clothes and toys to children living in orphanages, to providing therapeutic food that can save the life of a child suffering from malnutrition. Here are just a few examples of how you can help care for orphans:
- MANA â€“ Children in orphanages all over the world suffer from malnutrition, and America World is doing something about it. Partnering with our friends at MANA, we distribute â€œReady to Use Supplemental Foodâ€ to our orphanage partners. RUSF is a packet of highly nutritional food made from peanuts that is scientifically designed to combat malnutrition. Your $100 contribution can buy over 200 packets of RUSF that will help restore children to health.
- Ethiopia â€“ America Worldâ€™s operates two Transition Homes in Ethiopia that house around 40 children each. Children living in these homes have their basic nutritional, medical, and educational needs met, and receive one-on-one care from a staff of nannies, medical professionals, and psychologists. Your gift can help provide the resources necessary to operate this important, life-saving ministry.
- In Shaanxi, China, America World helped create an Early Education Room to help the children receive the early intellectual stimulation needed to promote healthy brain development.
- Child Sponsorship â€“ America World sponsors over 100 children in several different countries. The majority of these children have families, but face difficult economic conditions. Your gift can support our work in promoting family stability for children in need. We hope that you will join us our efforts to care for Godâ€™s children this holiday season.
â€“In Vietnam, America World sponsors 20 children, allowing them to attend school and obtain the food and medical care they need.
â€“In Haiti, we provided medicine and food for one full year for 30 children.
