Make a Children’s Home Christmas Possible!

Each year our children from the Kipkaren and Ilula Children’s Homes have a joint Christmas and New Year’s celebration. You can help make this celebration possible as all the children will gather for a time of rejoicing in Jesus’ birth and welcoming in the New Year.

$40 will provide one child with the following:
• A band new outfit
• A special Christmas meal

Consider giving this to a loved one in their honor. You can download your Christmas card from a link on your email receipt.


 Thank you for supporting Empowering Lives International!
