Kamina Children's Home

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." -Jeremiah 29:11

The Kamina Children’s Home provides a future with hope and possibility for 22 youth. They are gifted, intelligent, faith-filled and beautiful children of God. The United Methodist Church in North Katanga and West Ohio have shown them that they matter. Our continued support allows them to live into the calling God has given them. Please prayerfully consider how you can invest in them.
