My name is Witness Omoga and I’m a 31-year-old currently serving as a volunteer in Korogocho, Kenya. Korogocho is a suburb of Nairobi city where there is a vast amount of poverty and disease. A lot of people here struggle with malaria and Dengue fever. I volunteer my work a Children orphanage called Jehovah Jireh children's home
We have so many needs so many needs that are not being provided adequately for the kids. There are 286 kids in the orphanage of age between 3 months and 14 years and 36 of them have special needs. The children hardly have anything in their possession to call their own.
James 1:27 says “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” God has given me a dream to provide a special Christmas for each one of these orphan children.
Similar to Operation Christmas Child that puts together boxes with a few basic hygiene items, school supplies, and special gifts for children in poverty, I want to make Christmas bags for all the children in the orphanage. They all need basic things like toothbrushes, soap, and washcloths as well as school supplies and some simple Christmas presents.
I need to raise $5720 for the project by December 20th — that way we would have about $20 to shop for each kid’s gifts and supplies.
Christmas is coming soon and is a special time when lots of money is spent buying gifts for the people we love. These kids at the orphanage don’t have people buying them the things they need. They don’t have people to provide them with presents or lavish them with hugs on Christmas. But they do have us! It’s easy to simply close your eyes or turn your head to the sufferings and problems the world has. It’s easy to try and ignore it, but I’m begging you not to.
I simply can’t ignore the problem right before my eyes. I want to make a difference in these children’s lives. I want to do something special for them on Christmas that they will remember all year long.
Please consider helping me raise money for the children in the Jehovah Jireh Orphanage. For $20 you can give a nice gift bag to a Jehovah Jireh orphan complete with special presents, hygiene needs, and school supplies. I will be hand delivering all the Christmas presents to the orphans on Christmas day with some of my friends here.
God Bless you
