The AMOS Charitable Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization that exists to support orphans in sub-Saharan Africa and to provide medical care to underserved rural areas of Zimbabwe, a country currently facing economic collapse, 90% unemployment, and home to more than 1.3 million children orphaned by the AIDS crises.
The AMOS Charitable Foundation supports both children and adults in an effort to stop the deaths and disease now rampant in Zimbabwe. Your donations can help.
Right now, some 600 orphan children rely on the Zimbabwe Orphan Project for schooling and food. The AMOS Charitable Foundation helps pay the bills.
And some 50,000 men, women and children flock annually to the Nhowe Mission Brian Lemons Memorial Hospital, the only medical provider in a large rural region east of the national capital in Harare. It’s the AMOS Foundation’s support that keeps the hospital offering aid.
Two major projects will make more assistance possible:
- Solar Power for the Nhowe Mission Hospital Campus: Power outages are unfortunately extremely common in Zimbabwe. Relying on generators during a fuel shortage is both costly and dangerous for a hospital in rural Zimbabwe. With no other power sources available, our doctors have been known to deliver babies at night by the light of cell phones. We are currently seeking donors and/or grants to fund additional solar panel installation at the Nhowe Mission hospital, the Zimbabwe Orphans Program Youth Hostile, and the surrounding living quarters for hospital employees.
- Support for Orphaned Children: Many communities in eastern Zimbabwe were devastated by Cyclone Idai in March 2019, leaving orphans in these regions more vulnerable than ever. The Zimbabwe Orphans Program, under the leadership of the AMOS Charitable Foundation, has been asked to offer support for 250 additional orphans in the Manicaland province. The cost to support one child is approximately $35 per month. This donation covers their school fees, necessary uniforms, food, and ongoing support from an orphan mentor. When multiplied for 250 destitute children, the financial need is a staggering $105,000.
But these major projects can’t happen without people like you and your contributions. Won’t you help turn on the lights, feed the children, and provide needed medical care by giving $25, $50, $100, or even more?
