History: Rose of Sharon Home was established in 2004. When Orphan's Lifeline approved the home in 2006 for sponsorship, there were 12 children living there. In the beginning this home had no bathrooms or running water which lead to serious sanitation issues for the children. It caused sickness, disease and very poor living conditions. In 2010, the director was able to build a new building with the help of Orphan's Lifeline. With the added space the home has increased in children over the years and still has room to bring in more orphaned kids. The children are very happy here and are most thankful for being able to enjoy their childhood in a loving home. They have a large back yard to play in and their own vegetable garden where they can grow their own food.
Rose of Sharon Home is a thriving place where the children get to be kids, simply having fun along with learning the responsibility of growing a garden and receiving a sound education. We have space to take in more orphan children as we receive additional donors to join with us.
