An Amazing Three Years


 February of 2014 will mark our third anniversary at The World Orphan Fund. Over those three years we’ve been able to visit 22 orphanages and meet 2,900 children. And with a lot of help from people like you we’ve been able to make a difference, we’ve kept our zero overhead pledge, and 100% of every donation went directly to projects to help orphaned children.

Our work continues. We will be visiting eleven orphanages starting the day after Christmas in Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras, seven for the first time. We’ll keep you posted.

For all of you who have donated, volunteered and prayed for us, thank you. We thought you might enjoy a look back at what’s been accomplished so far.
