Outreach's Africa Mission Specialist Frank Dimmock writes from Zambia:⠀
"Day two in Siavonga, on the edge of Lake Kariba. The vulnerability of children and families in the Siavonga district of southern Zambia is obvious and has been affirmed by our visits with children at the Namumu Orphanage Center and by others we have met during the last two days...⠀
"Ebralie and I had an opportunity to meet several former Namumu children who are now working or continuing their education. We also met with Rev. Charles Ngoma, Namumu board treasurer and pastor from the Reformed Church. Rev. Ngoma is the coordinator of a fellowship of more than 15 Christian pastors from the district. The fellowship meets regularly to discuss community issues and challenges and to advocate for change.

Our Foundation does not deviate from its main mission - helping children who are raised in institutions for orphans and children deprived of parental care. So, today we have once again arranged a holiday for our wards from the Center for Social Support for Children and Families «Ray of Hope» in the Makarov District, Ukraine. 25 children visited the modern multiplex cinema and watched Bigfoot the Younger animation in 3D. Seeing delight, joy and happiness in the children's eyes, we understand that our work and efforts are not in vain and we are doing an important job. A happy child is the main task that we set for ourselves.
Visited the gurukul. Met kids there and realized that they have not seen their family members or relatives in years . They do know their origin but they have been abandoned by their own people.looking at them I wondered what could be the reason for this hard life.
The only beautiful thing I could hear was their common surnames . After their initials it said *arya* irrespective of their true surnames . It was a lifetime experience ! #gurukul#orphanage#ngo#boys#new_family#happiness#new_blog#blog#wordpress#follow ~taanyasahuu.wordpress.com
