We have a huge update to share and we can't share it without truly sharing the journey (okay a very shortened journey) that brought us to this announcement... So here we go! This is "lil" Blessing. Our Executive Directors, George and Sarah, introduced us to her family at the beginning of 2017. Blessing was neglected and mistreated even more so than her siblings because of her special needs. Her father, who was an abusive alcoholic, tried to kill Blessing several times by dropping her off the edge of their home onto her head. Blessing was the first special needs child that Project Orphans brought into our sponsorship program. It wasn't long before Blessing was able to walk with a walker and sign when she wanted to eat and use the restroom. Fast-forward to today, Project Orphans now has three special needs children (Janat, Blessing, and Joyce) who we provide support and care too. Each one of these children is precious in God's eyes and at Project Orphans, we believe in the worth and dignity of all human beings. Last week, we had friends of our organization ask Brittany Stokes, Co-Founder of Project Orphans, to visit their office. They explained that God had put it on their heart to make a donation. Not just any donation but a donation that would increase their faith and take them outside their comfort zone. During their conversation with Brittany, they explained that they felt God was leading them to give to a project that we had not announced. They shared that they believed there was something on Brittany's heart that had to be done. Well, that brings us to this special announcement... Yesterday, we officially broke ground at Pearl Village and will be building the first daycare center for special needs children in our community. The daycare center will be called, Blessing's Cove! Blessing's Cove will be ministering directly to children with disabilities in our surrounding community and to the families affected. In Uganda, there are virtually no services or infrastructure to serve those with physical or mental disabilities. We know these special gems are hidden in their homes and will feel true love for the first time!
