Burundi: Expanding to Maramvya!

VOH Burundi recently expanded our community by opening another center in an area nearby called Maramvya!

Everyone is very thankful that after many delays due to the recent political unrest in our nation, we have been able to open this new children’s’ centre in an area where the need is so great.

It was a good day last Friday when all the staff and volunteers from our Bwiza location paid a visit. Together we talked about our mission and also made plans for our upcoming official opening of this new Maramvya location.

We already started preschool and a feeding program and we believe we will be bringing hope to this impoverished community for years to come! Thanks to all of our sponsors and supporters who made this expansion possible! Read More

Burundi: Donation from the United Nations Development Programme!

At VOH Burundi we sent out letters of introduction to various organizations requesting they consider supporting us as we care for our children. In response, we received a donation from the local United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

The donation included tables, chairs, stools, cupboards, cushions, fridges, and electric cookers. These items will be used in our children and youth homes and administrative offices.

We are very grateful and encouraged by this amazing support! Read More

Boxes of Love Arrive!

VOH Kitwe:

Once again this year we have been blessed with a Boxes of Love container! It was an exciting time for VOH Kitwe children when they each received their own box of love. A visiting team from both CLA and Ladner Lighthouse Church, along with members of staff, took part in the distribution of boxes. Some of the boxes were specifically packed by sponsors for their sponsored children.

The team was happy to see the smiles on the children’s faces as each was given their box. The children look forward to this day every year and are very grateful to each person who helps make this special day possible! Read More

Zimbabwe: Welcoming the Canadian Ambassador!

VOH Zimbabwe was honoured to have the current Canadian Ambassador Renè Cremonese visit us together with his wife. His visit coincided with the visit of our friends from the Mission Zimbabwe team that comes from Ontario each year.

It was an honour to show the Ambassador around the Village and give him insight as to the strong partnership we have between VOH and our Canadian friends. He seemed very pleased to see the work being done and the impact that it is having on the children of Zimbabwe.

We appreciate the visit and the encouragement we were given!
