Tabitha Orphans Fund

Help us restore a life.

The church of Nigeria needs our help.

The Gospel is spreading quickly in Nigeria and many Muslims are coming to know the Lord. Muslim extremists are trying to stamp out this growth with violence. Their efforts have created many martyrs, and left many widows and orphans behind.

Tabitha Evangel Ministries provides safehouses and training for new converts, particularly women who have fled from persecution in northern Nigeria. However, in the past three years, many orphans have come to their doors seeking help in the name of Christ. The need is great and Tabitha’s resources are stretched to the brink already.

Jubilee Campaign has agreed to come alongside the Tabitha Evangel Orphan Project. Jubilee Campaign now supports over 70 children that are at the TEM Orphanage Camp!

Recently, 3 more children arrived at the Tabitha Evangel Orphanage. During a recent attack by insurgents, a church was burned down along with the Reverend’s house and documents. TEM is taking care of three of his five children while he works in the city and relatives take care of his other two children.

Sadly there are hundreds of kids orphaned in the past year alone from Boko Haram’s evil attacks. Please help us let them know that although people hate them for being Christians, others love them for being Christians. To help, please click the donate button and sign up for a monthly recurring $20 donation, give a $240 to sponsor a child for a year, or give a one-time donation. Help us put love and joy back into these childrens lives.
