THE ORPHAN'S HANDS
For over 25 years, the Cameron Family has been changing the lives of orphans in Romania and Moldova. From providing running water, flushing toilets and clean wells, to coal for heat, new windows, and food and clothing, they championed the physical needs of the orphans in these broken and desolate countries.
Through house’s founded by the Camerons, many of Moldova’s orphans are being saved from the horror of trafficking, and in the process turned orphans into daughters and sons. They came to know their Heavenly Father, and are forever changed by the love of Jesus.
Today, a new ministry THE ORPHAN’S HANDS has begun. God helped the Camerons lift these amazing young men and women out of darkness. Now, no longer orphans, they want to return and invade that same darkness with the light of Jesus Christ. THE ORPHAN’S HANDS equips these daughters and sons to become missionaries.
They feed the homeless, visit orphans, and bring the Gospel to the lonely in the poverty ridden villages of Moldova.
They are the THE ORPHAN’S HANDS.
