Why Heart for Orphans First?

Mission: Heart for Orphans First is a non-profit orphan care ministry dedicated to providing humanitarian aid and support to orphanages and orphaned children throughout the world. Our primary goal is to provide “quality of life” gifts for the children, such as toys, sports equipment, and entertainment items as well as basic educational and medical supplies.

We raise funds through donations and by encouraging contributors to "Fast on the First".
