Twice a month Ebenezer and Regina Udofia and their daughter Grace spend time with the children in an orphanage in Maiduguri. These children are only a few of the millions of orphans in sub-Sahara Africa. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), says, “In 2001, a total of 34 million children in sub-Saharan Africa were orphans, one-third of them due to AIDS. By 2010, the total number of orphans in the region will top 42 million. Twenty million of these children – or almost 6 percent of all children in Africa -will be orphaned due to AIDS.”
With such staggering figures you might have a tendency to turn the page of your mind in despair. Or you could do as Ebenezer and Regina do, reach out and do what you CAN do.
