Day 261: Mothers Without Borders
Today’s give comes from a suggestion on Facebook, while researching Mothers Without Borders, I was moved by the work of the founder, in 1996 Kathy Headlee, a single mother of five decided to step up and help the orphans of the world. For the past 15 years, she and her organization have been actively helping children in orphanages all over the world. It is a true testament to power of one person and how one person, like you and me, can indeed make an impact and change the world for the better. Mothers Without Borders is currently working in Zambia and raising money to build a school for the 53 children who are attending school in a cleaned out chicken coop. Thanks for the heads up, Michelle.
Mothers Without Borders was formed in response to the global orphan crisis. Serving children in orphanages in Romania, Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador, Nepal and Bolivia and those living in the streets in Africa and India, it is our goal to send a message of hope and offer real solutions to the serious problems these children face. MWB supports the efforts of local communities and non-governmental organizations in addressing the needs of our world’s most vulnerable population - orphaned children. MWB supports community-based initiatives and develop partnerships with local organizations to find long-term, sustainable solutions. Mothers Without Borders is a child-centered organization that approaches the needs of orphaned and vulnerable children in a holistic manner. They address the needs of the whole child: physical, emotional, social and educational.
