THE HOUSE OF JOSHUA
Owned and operated by our local Mission Partners, Lifenet Children's Foundation Inc. The House of Joshua is a rescue, refuge and rehabilitation centre for children at risk; providing a safe and supportive home in an extended family setting for up to 25 children.
The House of Joshua also reaches out into the wider community with an holistic support program for families living in poverty and enabling indigent children to attend school through a funding program. Additional tutoring, health & hygiene and welfare activities are facilitated for families by House of Joshua staff, older children and community volunteers.
We support their vital work financially by providing grants and facilitating child sponsorship schemes.
