After nearly 25 years of Operation Restoration we can look back and are very thankful for the amazing generosity of so many who have faithfully given to the Lord’s work here, transforming the lives of street children in Bolivia. However, many of our faithful donors are now no longer able to, either continue to give, or give at their previous level. We are also experiencing a growth in the ministry here and at the same time high inflation which has created a significant deficit in our income compared to expenditure over the last two years.
The Bolivian Reality
We have an all Bolivian leadership and staff team in Bolivia. We continue to minister to hundreds on youngsters on the street of the city encouraging them to come into our homes. We have seen over 150 different boys and girls come through our care in the last 10 years, with many who have finished their high school education and some who have also completed their university and/or technical qualifications.
We need to see a new generation of supporters, sponsors, donors, intercessors, trustees (UK) and board members (USA) to see the work taken forward and developed in the future.
How can you help?
– to be a trustee (UK) or board member (USA) if you have a passion to see the lives of these youngsters transformed by the love of God through Operation Restoration and can offer your time and talents to see this work grow and develop in the future. (Write to firstname.lastname@example.org)
– by joining our growing band of intercessors who faithfully pray for the everyday needs of the work here. (Write to email@example.com)
