    OWF receives dozens of requests for support on a daily basis and we try to provide assistance where it is most needed. This was the case with the Chrystal Children's Center in Kampala, Uganda. The center takes care of 30 orphans by providing them with a loving home where they grow and learn.  When we got in touch with them, they were struggling trying to meet the children's basic needs for food and medicine. Some of the kids were even hospitalized due to severe infections caused by lack of proper nutrition. Luckily, right now this has all changed for the better. We made sure the center has enough funds to guaran... click for more

It works closely with the impoverished local community living... click for more
