Keirungi Children’s Village
Crosstimbers is the sending church for Shawn and Primrose Cox and their son, Samuel, as they work with Bread of Life African Ministries (BOLAM) to provide homes for orphaned and abandoned children.
Shawn, Primrose and Samuel Cox
Africa’s children are crying out for help. There are an estimated 50 million orphans in Africa with about 15 million being AIDS orphans. Uganda alone has 2.5 million orphans, about half caused by their parents dying from AIDS. Moreover, children are simply abandoned at hospitals or in other places by parents who cannot care for them. While the need is overwhelming, we can make a difference.
One of the local village children that will likely be assisted looks on while the Coxes survey the land and discuss plans for the children’s village. Within minutes after coming to the site, the Coxes were surrounded by about six children. They were curious about the visit, especially seeing a “mzungu” (white person). After talking with the children, the Coxes learned that several of them are orphans. All of them were bare foot and some only had what amounted to rags as clothes. By assisting Bread of Life African Ministries, you can help alleviate the suffering of children in Uganda.
