“We’re covering children from the storm of the world.” — Happiness Wambura

aka LOHADA: Loving Hand For the Disadvantaged and Aged   |   Columbus, OH   |  https://www.lohada.org

Mission

LOHADA was officially registered in October 2000. Donations allowed operations to move to a row of rented rooms, then to a house. Now, LOHADA has four centers, Camp Moses, built in Arusha in 2004, is home to 60 children under 7 years of age who have been orphaned, abandoned, abused or subject to extreme poverty. Camp Joshua Christian School opened in 2005; it is a primary school for 120 children, mostly from Unga Limited and nearby slums. About 85 students board at the school. Camp Patmos, in the rural region of Shinyanga, serves marginalized children and destitute elderly people who have been chased from their homes after being accused of witchcraft. LOHADA receives most of its funding from Kesho, a U.S. 501(c)(3) umbrella organization dedicated to educating and caring for children.
