Lingap Children's Foundation is my Number One Charity. What John Drake has accomplished in running this amazing orphanage is nothing short of a miracle! I've been a participant in their "Place At the Table" for several years now after reading an article in one of Detroit's newspaper. Knowing that we can help support a child for a mere $300 per year seems totally impossible. Every penny donated is used for these needy children, as Mr. Drake and his Board of Directors personally pay for all administrative expenses. These homeless children are given love, an education and best of all a chance to live life to its fullest. I can't tell you how happy it makes me to know that I am truly making a difference in one child's life. Thank you John for giving me this opportunity. I urge everyone to go to their website and read of Lingap's history. I promise you it will make you laugh and it will make you cry.

Hello everyone! My name is Lisa M., 15 years of age. I am very proud to say that I am a new member of the Lingap family. I came here when I was in my 6th grade and finished my elementary years already with the support of the Lingap Center. I am very happy to be one of the Lingap Kids because here I was able to experience things that my family cannot give at home. I am the second eldest in 4 siblings. We were in extreme poverty. my father is only a construction worker, a job that cannot sustain our needs while I did not know anything about my mother. So i am very thankful to God for giving me so much blessings especially to Tito john and benefactors. i amvery grateful to these people whom god gave me as an instrument for unfortunate kids like me to have a bright future and be the best that I can be.
