An example of hope

The Intsheum Protestant Orphanage and medical dispensary near Idiofa cares for 45 residents and 29 other children who receive daily meals. The residents receive shelter, food, clothing, medical care, education, and life skills training in a loving environment.

“Three strikes and...”

images of RuthyRuthy, this tiny 7-year-old from the Congo, already has three strikes against her—malaria, tuberculosis, and malnourishment. Whether she strikes out or has a chance in the game of life depends on you and me acting quickly.

Notice Ruthy’s thin legs and arms and the pleading hopelessness in her eyes. She weighs only 15 pounds.

Ruthy was brought to the Haller Orphanage in Intshuem when her parents could no longer even feed her, let alone provide for all her medical needs. Mark Haller, the director, had little choice but to take her in, feed and bathe her, and rush her to the hospital—many miles away, over rutty old roads and through dangerous rebel-held territory.

Ruthy is just one of the 49 desperately needy children presently cared for by Mark and his helpers. ChildHope has been supporting their heroic efforts for over 50 years. We dare not fail them now.

Will you help us provide the financial support necessary to keep the orphanage open so that the lives of children like fragile little Ruthy can be saved?
