OUR FAMILY ADOPTIONS
February 21, 2011

Our Family Adoptions is a great humanitarian organization. They are ran by volunteers only and have no paid staff what so ever. The volunteers work to provide food, medicine and clothing for the orphans of DRC. As a volunteer we are willing to beg anyone and everyone for money donations for these orphaned children. We want to raise awareness about this forgotten war torn country with more than 5 millioned orphan children and keep children from dying. Yes, I believe in the power of people and OFA volunteers are great people helping more great people, the Congolese children in DRC.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing children given life saving medications, infants having formula and not dying of malnutrition, mattresses purchased so children no longer sleep in the dirt or on concrete floors and so much more.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

To raise enough funds for our organization to hire a secretary/coordinator for our Director who works a full time job and runs this organization tirelessly. To do so would mean we could get documents completed quicker, coordinate deliveries better and keep all volunteers on up to date on legal changes that happen daily in DRC.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Held raffles, sidewalk sales, benefit breakfast to raise money for food and formula for the orphans.
