From the very beginning of Danita’s Children in 1999, we have been dedicated as an organization to our mission of rescuing, caring and loving orphaned and impoverished children in Haiti.
We are following God’s call to “defend the fatherless,” (Isaiah 1:17) and “meeting the orphan in their distress,” (James 1:27).
Orphan Sunday is a world-wide movement to stand up and be a voice for the most vulnerable group of children, orphans. Believers embrace Orphan Sunday as a way to engage the church in caring for the orphan, and from this expression of prayer, nations are being changed and movements are being born.
As Christians, the bible calls us to defend the cause of the fatherless and to care for orphans, to visit them in their distress. Across the world, on November 12, Christians everywhere will speak up for the most vulnerable children in the world.
Orphan Sunday is an initiative of the Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO, www.cafo.org) and is implemented world-wide by a team of volunteers. Events are locally-led. Sermons, small groups, prayer gatherings or a shared meal at someone’s home are some of the ways groups can raise awareness and respond to God’s call to care for the orphans.
How can you help orphans?
Danita’s Children is joining the movement this year and providing free resources to anyone who wants to stand up for orphans. Feel free to download the materials we’ve created for your event.
