Touching LIVES and MENDING Hearts of Children in South Africa
LIFE Community Services in Leechburg, PA by Maryna DeVries
In the slums of South Africa, millions of little lives are wrecked by poverty, abuse,hunger, neglect, alcoholism, HIV /AIDS, TB and related diseases. This devastation has created a “parentless” society and is wreaking havoc in the lives of children.35% of our children are cared for by older siblings. What we do? Love the unloved; Develop- whole persons; provide FOUNDATIONAL EDUCATION; provide food(for some their only meals);report abuse; bring hope; link children with resources
Children living in poverty,affected by HIV/ AIDS& related diseases, abuse,etc. Many children are orphaned and we serve many child-headed families.
We’ve been operational for 11 years & met the need of thousands of children through youth, welfare, art,food,sport,medical, educational,programs. Many children are alive because of LIFE. Many are successful adults because of stability brought into their situation through this project. Many lives have been transformed and they have hope and a future
