World Orphans Day
Updated: May 2
Today is World Orphans Day- a day to acknowledge the problem and remember that you are the solution!
Did you know that there are 153 million orphans worldwide? That number is hard to comprehend! We all know that our biblical mandate is to care for the vulnerable among us, but such a huge task feels overwhelming. You may be like me and ask yourself “How can I make a difference in a problem so vast?”
Mother Teresa once said, “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one. We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”
One way to be sure you are making a difference in the life of a vulnerable child is by joining the Circle of H.O.P.E., a monthly giving program that assures that every need of every child at Open Arms Village is met every month. And right now you can DOUBLE your impact for orphans. When you join the Circle of H.O.P.E your new monthly gift will be DOUBLED up to $25,000! You can learn more about the Circle of H.O.P.E. by clicking here.
I appreciate all you do to care for the hopeless and hurting around the world. You and I are the solution to this crisis!
God bless you,
Kaytie Fiedler Executive Director, Open Arms International U.S.
