About Life of favor children's HOme

This home started in 2001 and has been supported by Orphan's Lifeline since 2006. Most of the children were orphaned when their parents passed away due to the HIV/AIDS virus. Some of the children were taken in by relatives who eventually also died from the same virus. This left many of these children to survive on their own, leaving the older ones to try to care for their younger siblings until they were rescued by Life of Favor. Many of the children were in very poor physical condition and severely malnourished. At the end of 2011, Orphan's Lifeline was informed that due to uncontrollable circumstances the kids ere going to lose their home and would once again be left on their own to survive. We immediately began working with the director of the home to have all of the children moved to a new location. The perfect piece of land was available next to one of our other children's homes called Freshfire Children's Home.  A new building was constructed there for the kids from Life of Favor. The children moved in May of 2012 to the new location where they were happy to be safe and secure and where they discovered a whole new group of friends.

About Uganda

Is a country slightly smaller than the state of Oregon and is home to more than 25 million souls. Uganda, while having a relatively stable government and substantial natural resource, is still a country with much suffering. The 46 year average life-span is evidence of the harsh social climate. Disease and war have take their toll. By 2001, more than 884,000 children under the age of 14 had lost their parents to AIDS. Many others have lost their parents to war. Thousands live in tent cities and the situation in Uganda is considered to be one of the worst humanitarian emergencies in the world. With an estimated 44% of the population living at or below poverty, the orphaned children of Uganda are desperate for our help.
