About us

Our primary purpose is to support and uplift orphans and vulnerable children in Mozambique, Africa. We strive to reach this goal by providing funds for food, medical care, personal hygiene, education, counseling, clothing, and other basic needs necessary for the children’s growth and development.

Currently we support two orphanages in Mozambique: The Carolyn Belshe Orphanage located in the Inhamabane Province and the Dondo Orphanage in the Sofala Province. Mozambique Orphanage Fund (MOF) is a 501(c)3 Public Charity that works in partnership with the United Methodist Church of Mozambique to accomplish our mission.

Our Projects

Carolyn Belshe Orphanage (CBO)

CBO is located at the Cambine Mission Station in the Inhambane Province of Mozambique. There are approximately 60 orphans who live here. The mission station contains a church, primary and secondary schools, a university, and a clinic. Children are provided holistic care and opportunity for education and growth.

Dondo Orphanage

The Dondo Orphanage opened its doors to care for children in 2018. Dondo is a suburb of Beira, which is the third largest city in Mozambique. Because it is a major transportation hub, the city struggles with high rates of HIV/AIDS resulting in children who have lost parents. We support roughly 30 children at this new orphanage.

How You Can help

Sponsor a Child

For only $42 a month, you can provide food, clothes, and education for a Mozambican child. This gift ensures orphan’s basic needs are met each month.

Monthly Giving

Recurring gifts of all sizes make lasting impacts. Just $10 a month could purchase a hen that produces aproximately 250 eggs a year. $20 a month provides 50 pounds of maize, which is the staple of the childrens' meals.

Why we love mozambique

Mozambican culture revolves around music and dance. Every social event starts with a song! Vocal music, dance and percussion are intertwined into nearly every aspect of life.

Hospitality is a core component of Mozambican culture. Guests are often welcomed with warm conversation and a meal.

Mozambique is a country with a diverse and rich cultural heritage. While Portuguese is the national language inherited from the colonial period, roughly 43 native languages are spoken throughout the country,  including Xitswa, Chokwe, Manyoka, Sena and Makhua.
