Cry of the Orphan

..> About Us

The 2007 Awareness Campaign, Cry of the Orphan, marks the second annual unified campaign to heighten awareness of the plight of the 143 million orphans around the world. The scope of this problem is too big for any one person or organization to solve. In the midst of this crisis, organizations from around the world are joining forces to make a difference. The Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAO) seeks to "motivate and unify the body of Christ to live out God's mandate to care for the orphan." With over 75 members, the Christian Alliance for Orphans desires to see "every orphan experiencing God's unfailing love and knowing Jesus as Savior."

Through this awareness campaign sponsored by FamilyLife, Focus on the Family, and Shaohannah's Hope, members of the Christian Alliance for Orphans are lifting the cause of orphans with one voice in order to see Christians, churches, and organizations united for change. We believe that "you are God's plan for the orphan" – each of us with our own role to play in caring for His children.

The Christian Alliance for Orphans has four categories for membership: Orphan Care, Adoption and Child Placement, Church-based Orphan Ministry, and Advocacy and Awareness. If your organization or church desires to be part of the Christian Alliance for Orphans, please feel free to download the member requirements.
