DONOR SPOTLIGHT

Our Ebenezer Foundation board members Bob and Erin Botsford have worked tirelessly to raise funds for the children and we thank them for everything they do to make it all possible.

“I fell in love with Ebenezer in 2009 while visiting Livingstone. Initially, spending time in the baby house and on the floor playing with the toddlers is what captured my heart,” says Erin. “I do my best to help provide financial resources so they can grow up in safety and lead productive lives despite the losses that most of us could never comprehend. That’s why I give.”

“At Ebenezer, these kids have a safe place to call home. It’s a place where they are nurtured, loved and provided a good education to help them succeed in life. As a donor, I hope to help them become leaders in their town of Livingstone, their country of Zambia and possibly the continent.” – Bob

The Runkels were introduced to Ebenezer in 2014, on a trip to Zambia with our board members, Jane Lee and Larry Winter.

Gertrud and Manny write: “Visiting the orphanage really touched us. We saw many small children being lovingly cared for by the ‘mothers,’ who are their caregivers. These children really needed the warmth of the human touch. In fact, Gertrud picked up a little one who wouldn’t let go of her.

“We were so impressed with Ranji Chara’s commitment and sincerity in which she expressed her love of Christ for the benefit of the children. We decided to become supporting members by contributing to the foundation on a monthly basis. We are so pleased to see that this good work is continuing. The need of the children is still so great.”

“I first visited Ebenezer in 1997. A young boy named Davey took my hand, and little did I know but that day he also took my heart and handed it to God.

Since that trip I have returned twice more, each time with a grandson. My relationship with Ebenezer has been the most rewarding experience I have ever had. As my husband John’s health declined, we knew what we wanted to do.

When he passed away in 2011, with the help of family and friends, we built the chapel at Ebenezer in his memory. I give to Ebenezer because these children have shown me the true meaning of the Bible verse, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive’. I thank God for the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful home.“

The Ebenezer Foundation sincerely thanks all of our donors for their faithful support of the children.
We are so grateful for their unwavering generosity.
