ORPHANS AND WIDOWS

New Mission Outreach in Vijayawada, India

Dr. Joseph Moses is no stranger to the Omega Foundation. We have observed his work in Vijayawada for several years and have supported his gospel outreaches in the tribal villages of that area.

During his recent visit to the Omega office, we decided to get more involved with his ministry. He has been very successful in establishing outreaches in Vijayawada and the surrounding villages.

In cooperation with Dr. Moses, we are proud to announce the addition of our newest outreach - Omega Children and Elderly Care Center. This newest outreach is home to 16 young boys and 4 elderly men and women.

Although we have previously provided assistance for widows in the communities where our homes are located, it is a new venture for us to have a home for the elderly men and women, whose families cannot, or will not, care for them. It is heartbreaking to hear their stories of neglect and rejection, and we are glad that we are able to care for them.

It reminds of the scripture, which says, that "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress." (James 1:27 NIV)

We would like to find sponsors for the boys through our child sponsorship program. It takes a mere $30.00 per month to sponsor one of our children. We are also needing compassionate donors for the elderly. There is no set monthly amount for the elderly as in the child sponsorship program, however there is a definite need!

Extending Our Territory

      As we look back over the last twelve months, we are filled with gratitude to God for His faithfulness and to our friends and donors for their part in the mission outreaches of the Omega Foundation.

     We faced many challenges in India and the Philippines, primarily due to weather related disasters. In spite of these tragic events, we were able to extend our mission into new areas.

     At the beginning of last year, we responded to the emergencies on the island of Negros in the Philippines, where earthquakes and tropical storms had devastated large parts of the island, and hundreds of people had died in the floods and rubble.

     One of our Filipino directors, a native of that island, organized the relief work and helped us to establish other mission projects as well.

     The city of Bacolod was chosen as a base for Omega’s projects, since an existing ministry offered us their cooperation. That allowed us to set up feeding programs for children and carry out many cleft lip and cleft pallet surgeries this past  November.
