Orphan Homes is a key area that SGA New Zealand is involved with. These homes are as far apart as Vladivostok on the eastern coast of Siberia to Ukraine in the west and south to Armenia and Uzbekistan where we have our main Orphan Home project. Sergeli Orphan Home is situated in Tashkent Uzbekistan and SGA NZ is the main supporter. As with all Orphan Homes we are able to regularly supply funds to meet day to day needs such as food supplies and clothing needs.
We also help with special needs such as upgrading bathrooms and toilets which have not been modernized since they were built and now found in a shocking state. Funds are provided to assist local churches take Christian programmes and Bibles to these precious children. The opportunities are enormous as there are thousands of orphaned and abandoned children hungry for the Love of the Heavenly Father shown through Jesus. This is possible through the Orphans Reborn Programme. Even Orphan Home Directors and caregivers are won for the Lord as they see Church workers lovingly give individual attention, telling children about the Father’s love. Hundreds of these children respond as they hear stories presented from the Bible.
Christmas for Orphans
This ministry provides individuals with the opportunity to help Bible preaching Russian churches reach out at Christmas time to lonely forgotten children living in orphanages and children’s homes. Where possible local churches bring the orphans to the church for a Christmas programme, but if this is not possible Christmas is celebrated at the orphanage. After Christmas stories and singing, each child receives their own gift, candy and Christian literature including a Bible of their own. This has a powerful impact on children as they hear of the Saviour who came for them, and who knows and loves them.
This is a wonderful opportunity as the local churches reach out to the underprivileged children in the orphan homes and communities in which they live. Thousands of young lives are presented with the opportunity of knowing Jesus as their personal Saviour.
