WHAT DOES MY SPONSORSHIP GO TO?
A sponsor's monthly donation of $45 provides school tuition and books, clothing, food and help with medical fees for the young person they choose to sponsor. 100% of the donation goes to the orphan that the sponsor designates.
There are other needs beyond those being provided by the sponsor. One of those needs is the after school program used to tutor the children and help them in their studies so they can qualify for college and a chance to succeed in the future.
Another need is the feeding program at the school the child iss attending. Some children only get food while they are at school. Our general fund helps provide warm porridge every morning and rice or stew with vegetables for lunch. For those children without sponsors they may not have any food over the weekend until Monday when they return to school.
Please contact us if you would like to know about these additional needs. If you would like to give to the orphan ministry please give to account 20200.
FAMILY BASED SOLUTIONS FOR CHILDREN IN DOWM
DOWM Ministry is not an orphanage where our DOWM orphans live. Many of the children have lost one or both parents, quite often from the HIV Virus. These children live with a widowed parent or in the case where both parents are deceased or the child has been deserted we look for grandparents or relatives who are willing to take them into their homes and care for them with help from DOWM. We find this to be a win win situation as a home is provided for the orphan and the child is able to help with the needs of the widow or older relative they are now living with. The DOWM Ministry works to strengthened and to ensure permanence, stability and safety for children in these homes. We look for ways to support these families and the communities that they live in.
Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble . . . James 1:27a
