Orphan's Lifeline really is doing God's work in helping care for so many children across the globe. Our family has been helping support for awhile now after learning of them through our church. We are very selective when it comes to charities based on the fact that many have such high administrative costs that not much money makes it to the actual cause and maybe then isn't managed properly. Orphan's Lifeline is so open and honest in their yearly financial review and helps donors understand down to the grocery lists of those homes how closely monitored the expenditures are! I feel confident that the money I give helps to serve those kids so desperately in need. The homes not only provide safety and physical nourishment but a true sense of love and family to so many! The feedback from them in updates about the homes and correspondence from the kids is heartwarming beyond words. I couldn't be more happy to recommend them!
I have been a supporter of Orphan's Lifeline for many years and cannot speak highly enough of the great work they are doing.
The staff has proven to be good stewards of the funds donated and have been changing the lives of this world's most vulnerable.
The stories of this organization from it's inception and forward are remarkable! Maybe not to everyone, but to the children and the families it has helped and touched is life changing. I have heard from those who started this organization personally and know their intentions and their hearts. And their hearts are of a servant as our Lord is. Funds are used first and foremost for children, in many countries. Homes are created to love and care for children as they are in families. Only 11% of donations are used for running the organization and fundraising. Wonderful, wonderful group doing much for our world.
Orphan's Lifeline of Hope International is, without doubt, a Christian organization devoted to providing loving homes and education for orphans around the world and, more importantly, teaching the children God's message of hope and salvation.
Christine Nantale of Uganda took it upon herself to take in orphan children in her community. When Orphans' Lifeline of Hope found out about what she was doing, they began to sponsor her efforts. She was stricken with cancer, and Lifeline went into action immediately to secure funds to make sure the children would be housed and taken care of. The quilting group from a church family in Oregon stitched a "star of hope" quilt to be raffled for the fundraiser. Orphans Lifeline of Hope's efforts raised over the amount needed, and made sure all the funds went to the care of the children. After Christine's death, the children's well-being came first. This organization is also special because they have such a low percentage of donated funds that go to administrative expenses. Donations go to take care of all the needs of the children, including education and spiritual growth. They are demonstrating true religion according to James 1:27.
Orphan's Lifeline of Hope makes sure their money gets to the children who need it. They truly make a difference in the lives of orphans who literally have no other hope of survival.
I have been giving to Orphan's Lifeline for about 3 years now. I appreciate the photos and stories that I receive in a monthly newsletter showing the good work that my donations are doing. They send out special requests for specific orphanages, so it is easy to see how my money makes a direct impact on the lives of children. I recently "liked" them on Facebook, and I now regularly receive even more pictures from orphanages showing kids who are grateful for our gifts. I plan on increasing my giving to Orphan's Lifeline as my income increases.
Both our church and my wife and I personally have supported Lifeline for almost 10 years. They are very conscientious of the funds they receive and have always answered the tough questions I have asked them.
I've been giving to Orphan's Lifeline of Hope International for many years. As someone who has a heart for orphans, I trust that the money I can give to this organization will benefit orphans greatly. The success rate of their orphanages and graduation of children from their orphanages to go on to lead successful lives is amazing! They are doing for these children what I can't, but I can help support them in their efforts. Orphan's Lifeline of Hope International are caring, supportive, and trustworthy. I am so grateful to be involved with an organization that makes such a huge difference in the lives of children.
Orphan's Lifeline of Hope is one of the most reputable and well organized charitable organizations I'm aware of. They send regular communications to donors with a variety of options (homes) to choose from to donate to. They also apply rigorous standards to the quality of care in their homes and inspect them to ensure the funds are being used responsibly, so donors can be confident their funds will be used to meet real needs. I am looking forward to meeting some of these precious children in heaven one day.
Our congregation each year raises money to support two Indian orphanages, and we so appreciate this charity for their diligence in making sure our money is spend wisely and with accountability. We have great confidence in these people as they continue to make a difference throughout the world. We also love how they are looking at the whole person, and giving kids not only physical help, but spiritual and secular education so these kids have a good shot at a normal life within their country.
In 2002 we saw a small ad in the Christian Chronicle for Orphan's Lifeline . The ad included a picture of a baby standing in a crib crying. We began supporting this ministry on a monthly basis immediately. We are so impressed that nearly all contributions go directly to the needs of the children with only a small percentage for administrative expenses. Each month we look forward to reading the newsletter and the stories bring us to tears. Tears of sorrow for precious children that have been neglected and tears of joy for the ways Orphans Lifeline changes their lives by sharing the love of Jesus by providing food, clothing, shelter, education and introducing them to the King of Kings.

This organization makes it so easy to help children all over the world with just a few clicks on my computer. The online tools allow me to see what impact I'm making in the children's lives and provides an opportunity to communicate with them. I'm very happy with this tax deductible non profit.
We love children and want to help anyway that we can. We have been donating monthly to Orphans Lifeline Int'l for several years and feel it is money well spent. The children's stories in the newsletter makes us want to donate as much as we can.
My wife and I have been donors to Orphans Lifeline almost since they started. They are totally open, we can call and ask them anything at any time, and it is hard to imagine any orphan's organization using donated money more efficiently. We love it that they are a Christian organization and everything they do seems to radiate a Christ-like attitude. We are amazed at the number of children they have served and continue to serve in the few years since they began.
I have every confidence that Orphan's Lifeline of Hope International uses donated funds in an ethical and responsible manner. When I give to a specific purpose, I am confident that it will go for the need stated. I particularly appreciate having direct communication with the staff. They have answered any question I had in a timely and complete manner.
Since having learned about this child-centered Christian charity some years ago, my association has been exemplary: informative, organized, personally rewarding. Some charitable organizations have changed over the years, causing me to review my contributions and even sadly dropping a couple. However, Orphan's Lifeline is a gem to which I've been blessed to give more each year. I appreciate being able to earmark my gifts to specific areas of the world or even to specific young people with clearly explained needs. I look forward to future donations to outstanding Orphan's Lifeline of Hope International.
I searched for years to find an organization to contribute to on behalf of orphans. Through a personal friend I found Orphans Lifeline and received assurances that almost all of my donation would go toward the care of children as opposed to advertising and administration. They have proven to be transparent and provide wonderful information regarding where donations are spent. We were so pleased with their work that we doubled our contribution this year.
Orphan's Lifeline is a great non-profit organization. I checked them out thoroughly before I began providing financial support. It is important to me that my family's hard earned dollars are going to the orphans that so desperately need someone to help. I looked at their financial information, have visited their office and spoken with their staff. They are forthcoming, helpful and care about these kids. If you have the ability and a heart for the helpless orphans of this world, this is the right organization to support.
We have been with Orphans lifeline since it started.
It is the best we have ever been associated with. It has helped orphans all over the world.
We continue to help them because they use the money donated for the children instead to pad their own pockets.
They are truly worthwhile.
