"Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him." - Psalm 127
We met him in November. His name is Kaleb.
We gave him this name. Nobody knows when exactly he was born – but when we saw him, we estimated that he was around two weeks old. The morning before somebody had found him lying near the railway tracks. He was fortunate. He was brought to one of the local orphanages. Kaleb is not the only child suffering abandonment. In some of the African countries of the Sub-Sahara region more than 30% of the population are infected with HIV. Whole generations of parents are dying from AIDS, leaving their children behind. Often their family members are not able to take care of them. Because each child is unique and precious - we would like to give children like Kaleb a home and a better future. We have a dream. We want to establish an orphanage so that children will have a better chance of becoming valuable members of society. May we take you along on a trip to East Africa?
