Breath of Heaven Children’s Ministries is dedicated to helping meet the needs of a growing orphan population in Lusaka, Zambia. Zambia is, today, one of the poorest and least developed nations on earth. About two-thirds of the population lives on less than $2 US a day. The growing number of Zambian orphans, by some estimates, has surpassed one million. Thousands of children are living in the streets of its capital, Lusaka, giving Zambia one of the highest populations of street children, per capita, in the world.
BOH provides a stable, secure, family-like environment at a Children’s Village that consists of 14 children’s homes and a school, with plans underway for a medical clinic and a church. BOH currently provides shelter and well-rounded care for 144 underprivileged children and their widowed House Mothers. Additionally, the school and supplemental facilities allow them to reach even more orphaned children and widows in the surrounding community with the implementation of educationally- and spiritually-based day programs and accessible, affordable medical care.
