In 2011, Friends of the Orphans assisted over 96,000 people through its outreach programs.
When Johan arrived at Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos Dominican Republic, a children's home supported by Friends of the Orphans, he was malnourished, underdeveloped and terrified. The four-year-old little boy was unable to walk or talk and was severely dehydrated and congested to the point that he had trouble breathing and was running a fever.
After nearly eight months at his new home, Johan has become a miracle child. Soon after, he took his first steps without any help. His face lit up with such a sense of accomplishment and from that moment on, he couldn’t be stopped. After nearly eight months at Friends of the Orphans, Johan has become a miracle child. Although he still has improvements to make, the fact that he can have conversations and walk long distances is inspirational alone.
Donate now to help Friends of the Orphans improve the lives of orphaned, abandoned and disadvantaged children just like Johan.
