Since years my husband and I, Roland & Viviane Kirsch from Luxembourg, are donators to Warm Blankets Orphan Care. Now in April 2013 we had the privilege to visit the home we are partially sponsoring in Medan, Indonesia. We were amazed by what we experienced: a bunch of joyful kids raised in a warm family atmosphere with caring and deeply devoted home parents. The kids are well educated and looking forward to a brighter future. We will not forget the happy hours we spent with all of them and we are already planing to revisit them soon.
For us continuing giving to this cause is the best investment we can make!
My husband and I have had many opportunities to volunteer for Warm Blankets over the years. In the process it has significantly changed our views on charity, missions and our responsibility to "the least of these".
Their model of caring for orphans and widows is like no other I have witnessed. These are not institutions being run be foreign missionaries. Children are being raised in a church home by widows from their local community with a local pastor and his family as the "head of the household". It's caring, nurturing, spiritual and personal. It's family!
Additionally, 100% of your donation goes directly to orphan care or rescue. Amazing! You may sponsor an entire home if you wish, track your donations, read updates about the home and your new family and view pictures of the children and caregivers in their daily activities.
Finally, Warm Blankets offers opportunities to go overseas to serve and to witness the love in action through short-term work trips and fact finding trips.
Giving through Warm Blankets is an opportunity to greatly impact the lives of the otherwise hopeless but it's also an opportunity to see your own life changed as well.
