Kinship United serves areas where disease, extreme poverty, armed conflict, and society’s structural breakdown cause families to decay. For millions of displaced, refugee, and scattered families, there is often a moment they realize they need to separate themselves from each other so they may survive. In humanitarian aid organizations there is a name for children who have lost protection of their parents and their community – these children are known as throwaways.
May we take a moment of your time to tell you about Gloria?
She is just one face among many who were in a very dangerous situation until we intervened. Gloria lived with both parents in a coastal city in Kenya until her mother died from untreated malaria. Her father tried to support the family the best he could through his job as a truck driver but contracted the Coronavirus while on the road. He eventually died. Gloria, with no other options, walked herself into one of our Kinship Projects, hungry and needing shelter. Today, she’s growing in confidence at Kinship United despite her pain.
Gloria is just one example of a child in distress saved by our Kinship network. Sadly, there are more. Lots more. This year, Covid-19 spread into developing countries with devastating effects, adding to uncontrolled infections and diseases including malaria, HIV, and Tuberculosis. Our staff can hardly keep up, and the need is growing week to week.
At Kinship United, we serve orphaned, unaccompanied, and separated children by giving them the love of a family and a place to belong in a home environment within our Kinship Projects.
Last year, we gave life-saving care to over 25,000 children and adults in 10 countries!
Today, may we ask you to open your heart again this year with a donation to Kinship United during these trying times? There are many children just like Gloria who are outside of your physical reach but can be wrapped in your warmth and love this holiday season through your thoughtful donation.
Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.
Months into the pandemic, food lines have been restored, allowing life to be restored through healthy food to thousands of starving community members, many of whom are elderly and unable to provide for themselves.
Your gift of $250 to our general operations fund allows us to place your gift where it is most needed. 100% of designated gifts go exactly where specified, and we continually need unrestricted funds in order to keep this standard. By giving “where most needed”, you can keep Kinship United going, so we can celebrate Christmas with even more rescued orphans next year.
May God bless you for your assistance in 2020 and your continued faithfulness to care for His children. Orphans, displaced children, and children living in poverty need protection, and you have given them the special care that they deserve. Thank you for lessening the impact of the current Covid-19 Pandemic and other tragedies endured by kids within our Kinship Projects.
