Fundraiser at Church

Operation ReachBack, Inc. – Portland Chapter has adopted Living Testimony, a charitable organization located in Machakos, Kenya dedicated to the care and education of children orphaned by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.  

In addition to providing for the educational needs of the children, Living Testimony serves breakfast daily to over 400 hungry children.  Recently, a number of distressing environmental factors have proven to threaten the children.  First, extreme drought conditions have caused water to be even more scarce.  Secondly,  the cost of milk and the cost of food in general has more than doubled in price within the last 30 days.

Your charitable donation will immediately help to house, feed and clothe orphaned and vulnerable children who have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS.

Ultimately, our primary goal is to impact the children’s lives for their highest benefit with the provision of care through education, housing,  food, clothing, medical assistance, love, and nurturing their dreams to reality.

Together we can give hope and change a life.  Every contribution counts and it is tax deductible. Please help, donate today. Thank you!

Operation ReachBack, Inc. is an organization of Seventh-day Adventist dedicated to the holistic enhancement of black communities, including selected communities in Africa.
