Our goal is always for children to live with a family. An orphanage is not an ideal place for children to be raised. The love and support a family provides is irreplaceable. Before Mr. Hollenberg's kind donation, we saw this support as a need, but were extremely limited with resources to fund this type of work.
This fund recently blessed a very special family. During a powerful windstorm, the roof blew off the home of Elijah, one of our sponsored children. He lives in a primitive community, without electricity or running water. Daily life is such a struggle and his family barely has enough to feed themselves, much less repair their home. They were in a state of desperation. When they learned A Better Life for Kids would replace their roof, they were overcome with emotion. A large amount of their stress, anxiety, and pressure was alleviated and they are incredibly grateful! Thank you so much Fred Hollenberg!
