ALONE…
Children should NOT be left alone to die.

Michael Medoth, the Country Manager for Hidden Hearts Foundation, is working diligently to rescue children in extreme poverty. Hidden Hearts and Michael are joining together to complete Osiligi Orphanage in Tanzania that will be able to house up to 30 children. However, once rescued, we go further in order to complete our mission of educating each and every one of the orphans.
We still need to complete the roof of the orphanage and put in a kitchen. With your help we are helping to get children like the one above out of the horrible cycle that exists in this area and into our orphanage, thus allowing us to get sponsors for their education and beyond.



HERE ARE THE STUDENTS THAT WE SPONSOR
