Orphan Care Awareness Month

What is it?

We are a people called to defend the fatherless, to literally visit and care for orphaned children in their distress. Each November, Christians gather to take an intentional stand for orphaned children. Thousands of events take place all across America with the specific goal of living out God’s father heart here on earth.

Orphan Care Awareness Month is your opportunity to enter into God’s call to love and serve children who have been orphaned by war – to rouse your church, community, family, and friends to respond to God’s call to care for the orphan.


God is deeply vested in the plight of the orphan. He calls His people, the Church, to join Him in this, bringing to each orphaned child, the love of Jesus in both word and deed.

You can be part of Orphan Care Awareness Month in many ways: invite your church or small group to learn more or even have one of our teammates join you for a meeting, engage your children with activities designed to teach them about orphaned children and God’s heart for them, pray with us, and use your voice on social media to share the stories of children orphaned by war.
