Operation Help Now is a nonprofit organization that has immediate and far- reaching impacts on the communities it services. We help homeless children in developing nations directly, by taking them off the streets and out of the cycle of poverty. The Second Chance of Life Orphanage provides homeless children in Freetown, Sierra Leone with a place to live, clothes, food and clean water. Our caretakers are members of the local community who love and nurture these children, and try to lead them down a positive path in life. By providing the next generation with access to education we empower motivated young people to change their lives and help their communities. Our scholarship programs in Sierra Leone and in Haiti provide motivated children with the opportunity to change their lives and ultimately help their communities. We pay for tuition, books, school supplies, uniforms, and transportation to and from school. Operation Help Now has already helped a lot of children, but we need donations to keep going. Since 2007 OHN has been helping people in the US and abroad. Around 90 children in Sierra Leone have been taken off the street and are currently housed in our orphanage. They, as well as children in Haiti, go to school through our scholarship program. When you hear their stories, and how much they want to go to school and make a difference in their communities, you cannot help but get involved. The people I have met through OHN since I joined in 2009 have been some of the most caring, passionate people I've ever met, and they have made a world of difference in these children's lives.
