Orphan Sunday/His Voice for Sudan

Posted by Maureen Sunday, November 08, 2009 Labels: , ,

A couple of my dear friends, Amber & Vernon, head up an organization called His Voice for Sudan. They have worked with local Sudanese in Yei, Sudan to start several orphanages that have become home to over 200 children and 30 widows. Not only do they have a home, but they also receive an education there. It's a great work and is totally sustainable because it's totally run by locals. Love it.

So, today is "Orphan Sunday". There are 143,000,000 orphans in the world, and 500,000 of them are in Southern Sudan alone. I'm really proud of His Voice for working so hard to provide a better life for some of these brothers and sisters. May we all do what we can to provide for the orphans of the world, even if just one.
