Our Third Proposal Was Just Mailed Off!

Posted by worldorphanrelief on July 19, 2008

Big news, folks! Today we were very excited to deliver our proposal to the Permanent Mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations. We wish to establish a relationship with the government and orphanages of Iran. Our goal is to deliver medical supplies, and provide basic medical training to orphaned and abandoned children.

World Orphan Relief Effort Addition

Posted by worldorphanrelief on July 18, 2008

We are expanding our program to include the very important issue of

Unexploded Ordinance Awareness and Prevention:

Thousands of children in former war zones are maimed or killed every year by unexploded mines, artillery shells, and aerial bombs.  Our Unexploded Ordinance Awareness and Prevention Program will educate orphaned children and orphanage administrators on how to identify and avoid these threats.

Eventually we will begin seeking qualified volunteers who will travel to orphanages in former war zones to educate children in awareness and recognition of un-detonated munitions.

Sierra Leone-The Christian Mission Home of Champions

Posted by worldorphanrelief on July 11, 2008

CHRISTIAN MISSION HOME OF CHAMPIONS

Christian Mission Home of Champions

Christian Mission Home of Champions

MAILING ADDRESS : Christian mission Home of Champions
C/o 12f City Road, Wellington,
Freetown, Sierra Leone.
West Africa.

NATIONAL COORDINATOR: Alpha Bangura

EMAIL: christianmission@yahoo.co.uk

PHONE NUMBER: 0023277231240

WEBSITE: http://www.orphanage.org/africa/sierraleone/cmfo

The children of Sierra Leone have been forgotten in the wake of 11 years of civil war. The area is peaceful, but many children remain orphaned or abandoned, and even those with families wander the streets looking for food or employment. By the thousands, they have been left to fend for themselves.

Child abuse has reached an epidemic level. During the war, ‘child soldiers’ were adopted into armies, given illicit drugs, and made to fight. Post-war, many children roam the streets and endure abuse in the sex trade as well as other forms of abuse to earn their living. Young girls especially are victims of cruelty.

Poor health conditions abound, on top of an overall of lack adequate food, clothing, and shelter. Their guardians cannot afford school fees. Most children are not in school.

The Christian Mission Home of Champions provides food, clothing, basic education and medical assistance to orphaned, destitute, abandoned, neglected and abused children.

The Christian Mission Home of Champions also seeks to provide a vocational education to help provide a future for these children.

Despite their best efforts, resources are spread thin. Financial needs are great and food crisis is a constant reality.

In their care at present are a total of 60 children, and need immediate assistance from so that they may clothe, feed, and teach them. The needs of their facility are as follows:

Food stuffs: Bags of rice, corn meal, corn flower and any kind of food products that provide basic nutrition.

Educational needs: exercise books, text books, school shoes and bags, toys, foot balls, volley balls, teaching aid (visual aid) materials, pens, pencils, crayons etc.

Clothing: Ages ranging 5 years to 20 years both boys and girls.

Medicine and medical supplies.

Training for orphans and other sets of vulnerable children living in poor rural communities is very much needed. A VOCATIONAL TRAINING CENTER will train the children and youths in various skills to enable them to become self reliant. There is a very high rate of school drop outs.

Vocational training machines and materials:
Like computers and its components parts, printers, scanners, Generator, tailoring machines, carpentry tools or machines, soap making machines, welding machines etc. There is a great need financial assistance too in order to run the organization.

Volunteers: For the children living both in the orphanage and Foster Care Homes, as well as to teach in the primary school.

Individuals gifted in project writing, website designing, community development and social as well as health services.

Funding: Acquiring money is no easy task. So many of the children under the care of the Mission are badly in need of food, education, and medical attention. The Mission does its best but has too little at hand. The Mission needs basic operating capital. Funding is also badly needed to construct the primary and vocational schools, which are presently contained in a structure built in the land.

Funding is needed to construct a house to accommodate volunteers.

A major challenge of the orphanage is that it is located on a wide expanse of flat land and the Mission is ill-equipped to undertake the development of the land.

Personal Needs:

• Lap tops to keep up to date proper record system.

• Transportation: automotive vehicle, motor bike and bicycles.

• Office furniture and stationery.

A Note About The Christian Mission Home Of Champions:

Any help for this organization will be greatly appreciated. Contact them and volunteer your time . . . or make a donation . . . either way, you will make a connection!

Every little bit counts; every little bit is one step forward toward rebuilding the infrastructure of Sierra Leone and providing a future for her people.

With very little effort, you can make first-hand a very real, very big difference in the life of another human being, in the life of a child.

Proposal to Collaborate with the Vatican

Posted by worldorphanrelief on June 12, 2008

We have established contact with the Apostolic Nunciature (the Vatican Embassy) in Washington DC. It is our hope to develop a contact within the Vatican with whom we may discuss and coordinate a cooperative venture between The Holy See and The Fishermen to provide medical supplies and relief to the orphans under the Church’s care globally. Essentially, we wish to distribute medical supplies and basic medical training whereas the Vatican and it’s orphanages and missions will provide logistical support such as contacts and lodging.
