Colorado Both Hands Project

Colorado Both Hands Project Page!


Over 147 million children around the world are identified as orphans... no parents, little warmth and even less hope. Lifesong for Orphans partners with orphanages in 7 countries to provide food, education, love and hope to orphaned and vulnerable children.

As you can imagine, the loss of a beloved spouse often makes it difficult for a widow to keep up with the necessary repairs to her home. So on November 10, 2012, a team of volunteers from Ellerslie Mission Society worked on widow's homes to help raise money for the Lifesong For Orphan's initiatives.

These volunteers raised sponsorship for the service project. Think of fundraisers where people participate in a marathon then ask for donations. The difference with this project is instead of running, we will work on a widow's home. 

The money raised during the Colorado Both Hands Project on will be used for –
1. Adoption Funding through Grants and Interest Free Loans
2. Orphan Care Projects providing education, food, housing, and facilities for orphans in Honduras, Zambia and Ukraine.

A generous donor matched the amount raised dollar for dollar!

Supplies used to work on the widows homes were donated. 100% of the money sent helped orphans. The matching grant goes to Lifesong and Both Hands administrative costs. The widow benefited, orphans around the world were blessed, and these nonprofits continued to serve orphans and widows.
