Hanna Orphan’s Home (HOH) cares for children who lost parents to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. HOH cares for orphans in eight homes, each run by a house mother. Additionally, HOH provides support services to vulnerable children in their local community, including a medical clinic for impoverished families. Children in both programs are enrolled in a local school and attend HOH’s after-school program, where kids get a meal, participate in Bible studies, receive counseling, and have access to the ministry’s library. During the summer, children participate in a special program designed to cultivate and explore talents and interests with professionals, which culminates in an art and innovation talent show.
