Rescuing & Restoring Families
On Eagles’ Wings is working in the slums of one of the poorest countries of the world to rescue and restore families that have been broken by extreme poverty, hopelessness, and parents selling their children for food. Most in the Nairobi slums are squatters in 10’ by 10’ rooms with few public toilets and waste that flows into the streets, river, and sometimes homes.
To begin, our goal is to send children to school when parents cannot afford it, train parents with a vocation, run a safe house for children in danger, empower women, and use Biblical healing to restore families.
We will begin with 10 children and their parents for the first year. With a minimum of 60 percent of Kenya’s capital city of 3.5 million people living in this squalor, On Eagles’ Wings aims at helping more and more families every year. We plan to make a concerted effort to involve city officials, local Kenyan churches and other organizations to provide vacation camps and manpower to improve conditions in the slums. Eventually we hope to replicate this program around Nairobi with Kenyans in charge and raising much of the support themselves.
Once you hold, laugh, and cry with the people in the slum, you cannot help but pour out love to them. Our long-term goal is to change the hearts of the leaders and slumlords, which obviously will take a miracle of God. But Jesus is in the miracle business.
God bless you!
