October 2017 - A Haven for Orphans and Vulnerable Children
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy October! In Zambia, this is the start of the summer season. Orphans and vulnerable children from our community of Matero, in Zambia, enjoy playing and learning with us on Saturday mornings. These children, enrolled in our "Safe Park" program, are battling the devastating effects of poverty, abuse, HIV, and AIDS. Many have lost parents and/or siblings, experience deprivation and abuse, and need emotional and psycho-social support for their normal development and well-being. "Safe Park" helps provide these children with some of that critical support.
Here are short stories of two children who are active participants in the "Safe Park" program and are thriving under the guidance and counseling of trained staff.
Please donate generously so we can continue to provide much needed services that help orphans and vulnerable children improve their emotional health and build connections with their communities. As always, 100% of your donations go towards POL programs and no part is used for overheads.
Your friends at the Power of Love Foundation
