The FOF Christmas Parties Have Started

Just as we look forward to celebrating the the birth of Our Saviour during the Christmas Season, in Zambia, our FOF children prepare for the celebration with singing and the rehearsing of the nativity event for presentation at their FOF Christmas Party.

Each year at this time, Faith and her Team visit all twenty four Centres to provide a Christmas meal and present a practical gift to each child. Faith tells us that the excitement and joy on the faces of the children as they receive their gift is something to behold.

One of the gifts this year is a colourful water bottle. Water in the rural areas of Zambia where our Centres are located, is a highly valued commodity and having your own bottle with a lid minimizes health risks and reduces the number of trips to the well.

A Christmas dinner is also an important part of the Christmas Party. The meal includes goat and nshima, which is a thick and smooth porridge made from ground maize.

May you receive the joy and blessing this Christmas of knowing how you have made a difference in the lives of these vulnerable and less fortunate children in Zambia. Thank you for supporting Faith’s Orphans Fund.

Teens Missions 2022

Teens Missions has started and thanks to your support, 120 of our FOF teenagers are attending this years event. This is a five week intensive training activity that is highly treasured by those who have attended and eagerly desired by those that learn about the experience.

Before they leave, Faith equips the students with a basket loaded with practical of ‘goodies’ such as soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, comb, etc …the following picture will give you a better sense of what they are given.

The benefits of Teens Missions are many, but one of the key elements is that the students are taught how to share their learning with others in the Centres where they live. So not only are skills passed on, but it creates a strong desire within the younger students for a chance to go. And that helps us achieve the goal of giving the orphans and vulnerable children the opportunity for a better future.
