Project Description

Every child deserves a home

At Rapha Children’s Home we care for:

  • Orphans

  • Abandoned children

  • Abused children

  • Children who have 1 or both parents, but who are living in extreme poverty

We provide complete care to 50 children. The care we provide includes access to a nutritious diet, bedding and clothing, hygiene supplies, emotional support and access to quality education. Our youngest child is 6 years old. Typically children stay with us through the completion of their secondary school education. Depending on their future ambitions, we will provide support for students to continue with their education through college, university or a trade school.

The children in our community have been through horrific experiences. Most of our children have been orphaned due to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. In many cases, they were living with grandparents who could not afford to care for them. They missed school, and some were even caring for younger siblings. In addition, we have provided a safe haven to children who were physically, mentally and/or sexually abused in their previous home situation. Children are recommended by the local children’s office or their situation is brought to the attention of our staff by community members. Every child has a unique story, but the common thread for every child is the need for a safe place to call home. Once a child is part of our community, they are part of our family forever.

We depend on the monthly contributions of our sponsors to provide consistent support to every child at Rapha Community Center. Meet the children who need your help below.

OUR BOYS NEED A NEW DORMITORY

At this time the boys at Rapha Community Center are living in an unsafe building. The floor is crumbling. The roof is leaking. There is not enough space for all the boys who need help in our community. The situation is extremely urgent. The local authorities have threatened to shut down our entire institution if we do not begin construction on the new facility as soon as possible. We need your help. The total amount we must raise is $100,000. As of July 15, 2019 we have raised $50,000 offline. Please donate today so we can reach our goal of the remaining $50,000. Thank you!
