Who We Serve
There are over 220,000 orphans and at-risk, vulnerable children in Honduras. This devastating number alone conveys the tremendous need for love and care for these beautiful children of God. Unfortunately, that is just the beginning. Absent loving families, education, nutrition, and other necessary care, most of these children, and many other at-risk children in similar situations will end up involved with the drug trade, prostitution, gang activity, and other self-destructive behavior because it is all they know and they think that it is what they have to do to survive. The vast majority of orphans tragically live out their lives on the streets, without a mommy, daddy, or anything else resembling a family.
It is our prayer that La Providencia will serve as a hope for some of these children, where they can receive the family, love, care, education, medical care, and encouragement that every child needs. Not only do we expect to love and care for these children, but we know that they will be integral parts of their families, graduate from high school and college, and be leaders in Honduran society who continue to live out James 1:27 as adults with their own families. By loving and caring for the fatherless, oppressed, sick, and poor today, we pray that renewal and revival of Honduras will happen tomorrow.
And by acting as a model for thousands of other orphanages around the world, we expect that La Providencia will inspire and equip others to bring the same love and care to millions of other orphans and at-risk children throughout the world.
