Grace International Children’s Foundation addresses the urgent needs of children who have been abandoned or left orphaned by east Africa’s AIDS epidemic by providing a loving home for them at Lulwanda Children’s Home (LCH). MDPC teams have served at LCH where over 125 children receive holistic care including housing, meals, health care, and education all within a loving Christian environment. The on-site Lulwanda Primary School provides education to the children at LCH, as well as children in the community.
