As well as sending medical equipment and supplies for local hospitals, we are partnering with Help the Children, a Christian organization that removes children from government orphanages and places them with Christian foster families in a safe and loving environment, and also helps orphans transition to adulthood. We plan to include clothing, school supplies, and Crisis Care Kits for the orphans. For more info on Help the Children, watch this video
