Orphanage of Our Lady of Perpetual Help
Founded by Sr. Luvia Joseph in 1978, this orphanage has served hundreds, if not thousands of destitute girls. The Sisters work to provide love, security, knowledge of God, and education to each of the girls of the orphanage. The ages of the girls who call Our Lady of Perpetual Help Orphanage their home can range from infant to young adults. While most of the girls living in Our Lady of Perpetual Help are orphans, not all are. Some have been brought by their parents to the orphanage because they were unable to provide for them.
Currently, it costs over $400 per month to feed the children, with additional expenses for their education and medical care.
Donations made will go towards improving the quality of nutrition, education, and housing for the girls at the orphanage.
* All gifts are tax-deductible
