Medical Interventions = HUGE IMPACT!
Our mission: provide life-changing surgeries & medical interventions for those who could never afford it.
Our goal: help 1 child per month: restore physical health & enable growth to their full potential.
Our Little Charity Canada (OLCC) is a group of volunteers driven by a passion to value the most vulnerable children in Kenya by restoring physical health and hope.
"... but the greatest of these is charity." 1 Corinthians 13:13b (KJV)
OLCC is inspired by God's love (charity) for humanity and responds to His call to care for 'the least of these'. We find these precious children through collaboration with our Kenyan affliliate, Kisima International, an official Kenyan charity. They identify those who 'fall through the cracks' and have no other options.
Every year, and most recently in March 2016, Naida Harris, one of our OLCC Directors, travelled to Kenya, visiting children who received surgeries. All were delighted to see her, with family members expressing their extreme thankfulness for the generousity of Canadians whom they have never met.
We have seen first hand the transformative affect on the children's physical health as well as their minds, emotions and spirits. The HUGE IMPACT causes a ripple effect, infusing hope into their families and entire communities!

His nose, breathing and voice are severely affected by scar tissue. His condition worsens as he grows. He has received the first surgery and is now waiting for healing to take place before the 2nd step. Doctors expect he will require 6 surgeries in all. Projected cost is $6000.00 CDN
**Please note: Donations given toward a specific surgery or project will be used as designated until the needs has been met. They will then be used for other charity requirements.**
