First and foremost, children need their five basic needs met: shelter, food, clean water, clothing and education. Unfortunately, many orphanages struggle to provide these day-to-day needs. Thirty-one first wants to make sure every child has these needs provided for.
Once the children are provided for, the next step to wholeness is to prepare the children to be placed back in their family’s home or be adopted (when possible). We work with organizations that prepare children for family reunification or complete paperwork that allows them to be legally adopted.
Lastly, we believe every child should grow up in a loving family. That’s why we also work to promote family reunification or legal adoption of orphans. Our desire is that every child is placed in a loving home and can experience the love that comes from being raised in a family.
Ministry of Mercy (MOM) was founded in 1992 by Daniel and Esther Edeh. Starting with just a few “family members,” MOM has now grown to 2 orphanages with over 300 children and one is the largest orphanage in Nigeria. This compassionate couple struggles daily to feed, clothe, educate and give medical care to so many. In the beginning, most of the new members of MOM were the physically or mentally challenged but more recently the additions have mostly come from newborn orphans. www.ministryofmercy.org
The vision of Coreluv International is to bring hope to orphans, through Jesus Christ, by partnering with communities and orphanages around the world to provide 6 basic needs: clean water, food, education, healthcare, job skills and a loving environment to call home. Coreluv is now partnering with orphanages and feeding centers in Haiti. We are working there to provide these needs and see hope returned to an impoverished and disaster stricken country. www.coreluv.org
