Orphan Sunday

On Orphan Sunday, join thousands of churches and communities around the world with one voice for one purpose: caring for orphaned and vulnerable children.

An initiative began by Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO), Orphan Sunday occurs each year as an opportunity for local churches and communities to rally together in response to God’s call to care for the orphaned and vulnerable.
