What Will it Take?
This year, the boys living at the FKS Ibrahimpur Orphanage in Bangladesh need a new home. The current orphanage building is over 40 years old, and it is literally falling apart. The kids have evacuated half of the building already. There is an everyday worry about their safety. Unfortunately, we simply don’t have the funds to secure them a new home, yet.
It will take a minimum of $350,000 to build one new orphanage building. It will take $580,000 to build the new building and cover the regular ongoing care and education for the kids.
I hope at this point you’re wondering how you can help. Our response...

Life for these girls changed forever when their father suddenly lost his vision and was unable to work. Desperate to escape life-threatening poverty, their mother left behind her blind husband, 4-year-old Afsana, and 2-year-old Shahana.
