Africa Orphan Care’s mission is to eternally impact the lives of the African orphan generation by providing care and compassion. We exist to "Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless…. " Psalm 81:13.
“Traditionally, African society had no such thing as an orphan. When the social structure was intact, the extended family immediately adopted any child who lost his or her parents. In many African countries economic turmoil and civil unrest have severely disrupted these structures. The traditional concept of an extended family has come under so much stress that societies have not been able to deal with the problem of orphans, especially in the numbers generated by the multitude of parental deaths caused by AIDS. Thus the thousands of defenseless children who now make the street their home." Dr. S. Farag (Newstart Founder) and Dr. Joel Musvosvi.
Today UNICEF estimates that over fifty million orphans struggle for survival in sub Saharan Africa. While we cannot save them all, we can touch the lives of some through compassionate care and rescue them from a life of hopelessness. For those children it makes all the difference in the world.
