International Orphan Care and Hosting – Sharing Jesus, Changing Lives
COVID-19 Update: Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who are being impacted by this virus. We pray for the sick that God would bring healing and comfort, for the vulnerable that God would help protect and bring support and resources to face this storm, for our government to have wisdom and be guided by God’s hand, and for the first responders and essential workers that God brings an extra layer of protection to their lives and to their families.
Around the world, NHFC continues to support our orphanages, caregivers, and aged out orphaned children wherever possible. While our host countries are mostly shut down, aged out orphans are at great risk for running out of food and resources. Likewise, in our less developed countries like Haiti and Kenya, food prices are soaring and it’s becoming more difficult to provide for the children. While hosting decisions are temporarily on-hold until we have more information in May, we are still providing support and resources to our partner orphanages and aged out host children. Your monthly support is still vital in this season. Your gifts are providing food, medical supplies, water, fuel, and other resources to help sustain vulnerable lives during this time of crisis. Thank you for your continued support and prayers!
As a non-profit NHFC cannot refund money. However, any families who sign up to host a child will be able to use those funds at Christmas time or next season if we are unable to proceed with hosting this summer. Summer hosting may be held later in the summer or may be delayed until Christmas. Once the travel ban is lifted decisions will be made as to whether or not it is safe and wise to proceed with summer hosting or to wait until Christmas. Please help us pray for God’s guidance as these decisions are made.
Since 2005, New Horizons for Children has been sharing the love of God with vulnerable and orphaned children around the world. We help families step out in faith and step into an at-home mission trip by opening their home to an orphaned child from Eastern Europe for a 4-6 week visit during the summer or winter. We partner with orphanages in Ukraine, Latvia, and Kenya to provide for the basic needs of the children and we take mission teams in country to serve in orphanages and share the love of Jesus. We also provide parent education and training to families in the USA who are caring for vulnerable children, as well as, training for caregivers in our orphanages to help them better meet the needs of the children. Vulnerable children worldwide desperately need the love of family and to know the love of God. NHFC exists so these children will know that they have value, they are not forgotten, and they are not alone.
