We have had the opportunity for the past 16 years of going to SE Asia to reach out to the orphans. Our trips have consisted of short term project trips, primarily to spend time with the orphans, build relationships, and to help meet their social and economic needs. Our family combined has taken over 50 trips to serve and spend time with the children in the orphanages.
Our desire for some time has been not only to make an impact short term, but to build something that will have lasting impact on the lives of these orphans. A transition house is the answer and gives these who fall through the cracks a much better chance of survival and success.
It costs $375 per month to care for one child. That breaks down to $150 for food, $110 for rent, $20 for a tutor, $75 for house parents and $20 for utilities.
