TSC Missions is working through a local missionary couple to help meet the needs of an orphanage for children suffering from various mental and physical disabilities. These children who had once been abandoned and left to die now have a home where God’s loving care has given them a new life. TSC Missions helps provide salaries for the caregivers, supplies for the children, and sends medical professionals and volunteers to visit the home. TSC Missions is also supporting the newly established young adult transition center, providing those who graduate from the orphanage with continued care as well as vital life skills/ job training.
Since 2005, TSC Missions has partnered with All for Christ—a ministry currently feeding children in one of the most impoverished communities in Addis Ababa, most of whom are orphans and/or HIV/AIDS victims.

In addition, TSC Missions is partnering with Healing Hands of Joy as they reach out to Ethiopian women who have suffered from obstetric fistula—a preventable childbirth injury that leaves women ostracized by their communities. The ministry empowers fistula survivors through education, economic aid, spiritual counseling, and access to safe delivery options for pregnant mothers.

What began as a local pastor with a burden for the children living on the streets of Lusaka has now become Kakabalika—a loving home to more than thirty former street children.
