moniqueandorphan2I am so blessed by the people I’ve met along the way in this work.   Monique Aiken and her sister Christina Aiken-Yulfo are among the many supporters who have come along side our mission, embracing the vision to help build hope and shelter for orphans. I’ve known Monique for 2 plus years and her love for the orphans and our cause never ends. After traveling with us to Cameroon, she accepted a postion on our board. I often call Monique our mobilizer in chief.

Monique’s heart to help has once again been activated and she’s planning a  fund raising event at Zinc Bar in New York April 19.

 She’s been instrumental over the past year in helping raise awareness and funds for Angels Home for Orphans in Cameroon. Now the building is almost complete. Her vision is expanding…and she’ snow helping raise funds for Mercy Homes India and Ngatha International in Kenya. Monique’s sister Christina is the Angels Home for Orphans architect and she will be at the event to share her heart for the children. It’s people like Monique and Christina who keep the vision alive… and then there’s Ron…


Ron Moore is owner of Oasis Personal Fitness Training in Phoenix. He heard about our partner Ngatha International, caring for the orphans in Kenya. He immediately offered to organize a Fitness Trek to be held May 11 to raise funds… because he loves kids. It’s a lot of effort and he’s got a very simple goal: to raise $3,500 for a modern latrine for the orphan boys.daniellandboy copy 

Did I mention Danielle Lewis and Magda Peronel? Both are medical students at Scottsdale School for Naturopathic Medicine and both traveled with a team of 7 to Cameroon in 2010. Their role as medical professionals served the ill and those infected with HIV/AIDs. They served more than 500 patients in three days while in Cameroon. Both are completing their medical studies, and at the same time keeping their love for orphans alive. Each is volunteering in Haiti in a few weeks and both hope to return to Cameroon once the orphans are in the home. Danielle serves on Angel of Mercy board.


It takes people from all walks of life to come along side the orphans and help build hope and a future. To make a greater impact in the lives of the orphans we serve, we’ve set a goal to have 12 fund raisers this year… and we need to more mobilizers! We can’t do it all, but we can all do something. What’s your something?
