Advent 2017: A Voice of Hope

A Voice of HopeThis Advent, in partnership with our mission partner, ChildVoice International, we are bringing Hope to thousands of vulnerable girls living in refugee settlement camps in Uganda. Currently, over 1.3 million refugees have fled from the violence in the war-torn country of South Sudan, with more arriving daily. More than 19,000 of these refugees are traumatized girls (ages 12-18) who have children of their own, are pregnant, or are at-risk of becoming pregnant. And, this number unfortunately continues to rise every day. Through this Advent Project, we can be the voice to the voiceless. We can be their Voice of Hope!
