We believe that caring for orphans and vulnerable children is at the heart of the Gospel, and we feel that one of the best ways to care is by serving families who are fostering or who have adopted. Half of all foster parents quit within one year of their first placement which then causes kids to move from home to home. Being surrounded by a Care Community can greatly diminish the possibility of this happening. A Care Community is made up of 6-8 people who make a year commitment to serving a family through providing meals, housework, running errands, babysitting, and mentoring.
One of the hardest parts of home projects is having the right tools, especially if you are in a difficult life situation. We have taken care of that problem by putting together a trailer with all the supplies and tools necessary to clean up yards, wash windows, paint, minor home repairs, clean out gutters, trim small trees and more. This trailer is available for groups to love and serve their neighbors and those in need.
Since 2012, K2 has sponsored over 200 orphans in the village of Ekudzeni. We have helped build a well and church, as well as provided shoes, education, and basic medical care. You can sponsor a child or serve missionally with K2 in Ekudzeni. Follow updates on our work in eSwatini on the Ekudzeni Carepoint & K2 Community Facebook page.
