AFRICA AWAITS...My sister, Alexandra, and I have always wanted to share the pilgrimage and enlightenment of a mission trip to Africa. And through much research and years of anticipation, we have finally found the right opportunity and organization to make this possible. Sunrise Center is an orphanage near Cape Town, South Africa in need of assistance with the 300 homeless children they shelter. We have so much to share, as far as heart and mind can reach, and just the same, so much to learn from such an experience...now is our chance to devote ourselves to this mission TOGETHER.
Just as my sister and I have found and nurtured the connection we have with each other, we would like to find a place and connection within the country and its children. We would love the opportunity to incorporate ourselves and our endless potential to help bring some light to this orphanage. We are not only seeking for the chance to volunteer but also to completely immerse ourselves in their culture. We are asking for you to help us make this possible. Any donations would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks again for looking into our mission :)
More Information About Our Mission
African countries have large numbers of people living with HIV/AIDS. This
results in a lot of children being
left behind due to parents dying from HIV/AIDS and being left with no one to
look or care for them. Sometimes
children are simply abandoned because their parents have no means to provide
for them. The child/orphan
care program work consists of caring for children at these centers, providing
education and designing
activities for the children and helping with general duties of the center, such
as teaching, feeding,
cooking, and caring for children and babies. Sunrise Center looks after children
from poor backgrounds
where most parents cannot afford to buy food at home or pay school fees. This
project runs to
provide support to young children in need and assist the classroom teachers
with teaching children to talk,
paint, draw and make colorful murals.
