Volunteers Heart For Africa (VHFA)
Volunteers Heart For Africa (VHFA) is a non-governmental organization committed to fighting hunger, lack of education and medical care among children in desperate need, and fighting illiteracy in adult women and men. VHFA is directed towards orphans, children suffering from poverty and infected by HIV/AIDS, and provide them with a decent standard of living. In doing so, we also aim to raise conscious in society by teaching individuals basic skills that will help the surrounding communities to develop.
We understand that when it comes to charity organizations or donating in general there is a certain hint of skepticism involved. Many people turn away from the opportunity to help because they feel uncertain that their support is going to the right places. This is perfectly understandable because in the end one is forced to rely on the good faith of others.
Volunteers Heart for Africa always seek to honor and equip biological families, when possible, but ready to fill in where biological family is absent or unable to care, Volunteers Heart for Africa step in as fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, and mentors to the children. We prepare them for their future roles as godly fathers and mothers in their own families. We help inspire them to reach back in love to their biological families.
