These children are cared for through the generous donations of faithful sponsors.
$60 per month ($2 per day) provides food, clothing, education, and medical care. All children receive equal care and opportunity at Zion, and approximately 1/3 are in need of sponsorship.
A little something from the children of Zion:
Since I came to Zion… “I don’t go to sleep hungry.” “I have a bed and a mattress.” “I am not sent home from school for lack of fees.” “I have a box for my things.” “I can bathe daily.” “I am saved.” “I learned how to worship God.”
In 3 short years our Zion family has grown to
110 children! Photos and stories are updated frequently. For additional information on the gift of sponsoring a child feel please contact us.
