World Made Flesh

GUMC's former staff members, Annie Keith, currently works at WMF Moldova.

From WMF Moldova's website:

As a sign of the presence of the Kingdom of God, WMF Moldova seeks to love and serve Jesus in community among the most vulnerable of the poor: children at-risk and their families.

Fifteen percent of Moldova’s children have at least one parent living abroad while two percent live without both parents. And more than 8,100 children live in residential institutions today. Although stories of trafficking, exploitation and abandonment of these children abound, WMF staff are committed to living as people of hope in Moldova in the midst of what often seems to be an impenetrable darkness.

From Watoto's Website:

The Watoto model is based on the core vision to rescue, raise and rebuild.

It comprises the construction of children’s villages, which provide a homely environment, where children are housed, clothed, fed, educated and spiritually discipled, with the intention to train and equip them as future leaders. The goal is to provide holistic, residential care for every child so that each one will become a responsible Christian and a productive citizen of Uganda and Africa.

The villages cater for children (2 years of age and above), while Watoto has also set up homes for babies to care for those abandoned or left vulnerable between the age of 0 and 2.
