Let's Build a Home
Update 2020 and Vision 2021
South Africa statistical experts estimate that there are about 4 million orphans in South Africa, half of whom have been orphaned as a direct result of the AIDS pandemic. Each year in South Africa, approximately 3,500 babies are found abandoned, only 20% of those are found in time to save their lives. Many years ago, we felt God challenge us to ask Him for a nation of orphans and abandoned children.
In 2016, Engage Africa made the first payment on 21 acres of land. This was a giant step toward fulfilling a call to care for orphans. By the grace of God and the help of friends and partners, the final payment was made just 1.5 years later. Then came paperwork, re-zoning, and fundraising.
2020 has been the year for security and access. As you look at the property today, you will see the result of a year of very hard work: a new access road and 1.5km (3/4mile) of security fencing. We now have a safe space for children!!
However, if you look deeper, with more than your eyes, you will see what we see. You will see the image of a strong, welcoming, safe home. You will see children smiling and playing. You will see mothers caring, worrying, correcting, cheering, soothing, and being the hands and heart of Jesus to these little ones. You will hear the sound of music and giggling. You will smell nourishing food and sense the presence of Jesus. This is what we “see” when we look at this space.
Will you help? Will you help us build a home? Will you help us set the stage for bringing the little ones to Jesus?
Within our current lockdown restrictions, all street vendors are required to close and piece jobs (temporary jobs) and begging are not allowed. Since these are the main sources of income for the majority of people in Freedom Park who have income, food has become scarce and nearly impossible to get. We have joined with people in our community to provide food parcels (bags of groceries), but it is a small drop in a large bucket of hunger. We are currently purchasing and delivering 65 parcels to Hope Church families. This costs about $500/week that was not planned or budgeted. We need your help.
