Over the last few years, an insurgent communist group ‘New People’s Army’ have been prominent and violent within the area. This has left many children orphaned as their parents have been killed or left in abject poverty.
There are now 10 children in the care of Pastor Jacob* and his wife and they are now receiving an education as well as Christian teaching and practising daily devotions.
VOM provided funds to assist with food, shelter and education for the children in care who are currently staying within a safe house.
Pastor Jacob and his wife are looking to welcome more children to support in the next year.
